FAQs: Financial Conflict of Interest

Do investigators need to complete Financial Conflict of Interest training before a new award or change to an existing NIH award can be set up in Kuali Coeus and SAP?

Yes, the new CITI training on COI will need to be completed.

Additionally, at time of award, a new COI disclosure will be required as part of the annual COI disclosure, for yearly continuations, Renewals and New awards. The Significant Financial Interest (SFI) threshold has been lowered so will need to be done under the new regulations. For more information go to http://coi.mit.edu.

What is CoeusLite?

Coeus Lite was originally developed for the occasional Coeus Proposal Development user, but is now used only for Conflict of Interest disclosures. Please refer to the COI website for more information.
