Management Plans

The University is committed to putting appropriate measures in place to support faculty and staff members in carrying out their professional responsibilities free from unnecessary scrutiny.  When a response to the conflict of interest disclosure reveals a potential, perceived or actual conflict of interest, a management plan is developed to document the oversight process and responsibilities. 

Management plans are created to proactively address questions that may arise regarding an individual's objectivity, integrity or professional commitment as a result of a disclosed activity, relationship or financial interest. Some federal funding agencies specifically require a management plan be developed and implemented when a financial conflict of interest is identified.

The existence of a management plan demonstrates that the individual and the University have considered the situation carefully, recognize the issues involved, and taken steps to prevent future problems.
