Appeal Process

Within two weeks of notification of the Financial Conflict of Interest Committee (fCOIC) decision, research personnel must acknowledge in writing agreement to comply with any required management plan or submit a written request for reconsideration to the fCOIC, which has the authority to review and affirm the previous decision or amend the management plan. The fCOIC will notify the research personnel and the unit head of the result of the appeal. Research personnel who do not agree with the fCOIC decision may submit a written request for reconsideration to the Senior Vice Provost for Research, who may recommend to the fCOIC that they delete a requirement. The SVPR may not alter or remove a requirement. In all cases, the SVPR may add requirements to a management plan at his or her discretion. The fCOIC issues a final binding decision.
