COI Regulations for PHS (Including NIH) Deadlines

PHS  Proposals (Including NIH) for Upcoming Submission Cycles:

The U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) amended its Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) Regulation effective August 24, 2012. Accordingly, the University of Louisville has put into effect revised policies on Conflict of Interest posted at:

In order to fully comply with PHS’s new regulation, UofL has developed the Attestation and Disclosure Form (ADF). If you plan to apply for funding from a PHS agency (directly or flowing thru another entity), you must comply with the new FCOI regulations. Please note that some non-federal sponsors have chosen to follow PHS regulations and therefore require compliance.

Before a PI can submit a proposal to any of the PHS agencies, all named project personnel must have a completed ADF on file. To request the ADF form, please send an email to

Questions regarding this requirement can be directed by email  to Allison Ratterman, Director, Research Integrity or by calling 852-2453.
