A Conflict of Interest (COI), whether real or perceived, can impact results of a research project or how government funds are used. Allina Health has an obligation to ensure its work is free from bias and meets the highest standards. It is important to identify and manage COIs prior to initiating research or beginning a federally-funded project.
Allina Health's Research and Sponsored Programs Conflicts of Interest Policy (COI Policy) combines the management of COI disclosures whether for research on human subjects or federally funded projects. The COI process will help ensure that COI disclosures are handled in a consistent and timely manner.
The Research and Sponsored Programs Conflicts of Interest (COI) Policy applies to the following groups:
Allina Health has contracted with the
Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) to use the training tools it has developed, as well as adding an Allina Health module.
For answers to questions about COI training requirements, contact
Allina Health policy requires any consultant, subrecipient, or subcontractor (External Partner) on a PHS award to certify that it has policy that is consistent with the PHS regulations, or comply with Allina Health's policy. If the External Partner has a policy that is consistent with the PHS regulations, the External Partner must either submit an
External Partner Financial Conflict of Interest Disclosure Form or be registered with the Federal Demonstration Partnership. If the External Partner does not have a consistent policy, each investigator must follow Allina Health's Research and Sponsored Projects Conflict of Interest Policy and complete the required disclosure forms.
