Information for Subrecipients Using UVM's Financial Conflict of Interest Policy


Welcome Subrecipients

This page is specifically meant for Subrecipients under existing University of Vermont (UVM) sponsored projects that do not have a Financial Conflict of Interest (FCOI) policy that complies with Public Health Service regulations and have agreed to use UVM's FCOI policy.

Purpose of the Policy

The policy promotes objectivity in research by establishing standards that provide a reasonable expectation that the design, conduct, and reporting of research performed under sponsored agreements will be free from bias resulting from Investigator financial conflicts of interest. This policy is required by the PHS policy, as well as policies of the National Science Foundation and other sponsors.

Subrecipient Responsibilities

Subrecipients on UVM PHS proposals using UVM's FCOI policy must complete Financial Conflict of Interest training and must disclose any Significant Financial Interests prior to the submission of proposals.

Questions and Contacts

For questions concerning FCOI, please UVM's Sponsored Project Administration at 802-656-3360, or email
