Table comparing new and old requirements

  • It's been suggested that CoI forms should be collected in early April when employees are submitting their tax returns. This is the time of year that people are most aware of the income they have received from various sources and it is thought that completing the forms at this time will lead to more accurate reporting.
  • NSF has proposed to collect examples of institutional COI policies. (Dec 1, 2011) This may indicate that NSF will make similar changes to their COI requirements.
  • New Checklist for revising policies
