FAQ: If I disclose a financial interest, will it delay submission of my proposal?
If I disclose a financial interest, will it delay submission of my proposal?
All investigators listed on the proposal must complete a COI Declaration prior to submission of a proposal for research funding. Once disclosure has been made, the submission of a proposal will not be delayed for COI reasons. If a disclosure is determined to relate to the research within the proposal, awarded funds may be held until the potential conflict is managed (see If it is determined that I have a COI, will it affect the acceptance of an award?)
