Effective November 12, 2020, NIH funded recipients will be required to submit their publicly assessible Financial Conflict of Interest policy to NIH via the eRA Commons Institution Profile (IPF) Module (IPF Module). A PDF of the FCOI policy must be submitted by the institutional signing official (SO) via the IPF Module under a new tab labeled, “Policy Documents”.
While the automated requirement goes into effect in November, NIH recognizes that recipients will need to modify their internal systems in order to comply. Therefore, applicants and recipients have until December 1, 2020, to comply with this requirement.
