    Reason for Policy                                                                    

    Ensuring objectivity in research has always been a concern to the research community and universities. One of the keys to ensuring the public interest and our best research is to manage possible FCOIs. Originally passed in 1995, and revised in August, 2011, the Public Health Services documents Responsibility for Applicants for Promoting Objectivity in Research for which Public Health Service Funding is Sought and Responsible Prospective Contractors is the most comprehensive federal regulation regarding FCOIs. It requires institutions to reasonably ensure that Public Health Service-funded research is free from bias resulting from Investigator FCOI.
