All proposals for sponsored funding will be routed for University approvals using UFIRST.
Certain sponsors require Investigators to complete Conflict of Interest (COI) or Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) Disclosure Forms prior to proposal submission. At UF, these are loaded into the UFIRST proposal record when routed for submission.
Investigator is defined as the Principal Investigator, Co-Principal Investigator, or any other person responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of the research or educational activities. “Investigator” for the purposes of determining a “Significant Financial Interest” includes the Investigator’s spouse and dependent children.
These template Research Agreements are most commonly used with our non-federal (industry) sponsors.
