The 2013 Annual Financial Disclosure period has begun pursuant to Penn State policy RA20, and will run through April 30, 2013. The University is introducing the Financial Disclosure process in a three-year, tiered plan. This year, all Investigators in the following colleges are required to submit financial disclosures in COINS, the University’s Conflict of INterest System: Agriculture, Earth and Mineral Sciences, Eberly College of Science, Engineering, Health and Human Development, and the Applied Research Laboratory and Electro-optics Center. Individuals in these colleges who are responsible for the design, conduct or reporting of research will be contacted by ORP staff with reminders and instructions for using COINS. Investigators who submitted an Annual Financial Disclosure in 2012 will need to submit an update to their disclosure during this year’s disclosure period. Please check the Conflict of Interest page for Frequently Asked Questions and additional information about COINS information sessions to be held on campus.
