Submit a Conflict of Interest in Research Disclosure
Annual COI disclosure submissions are required from all investigators engaged in UNM research at Main and Branch campuses.
- A call for annual COI submissions typically occurs every August. This year, however, the call for annual COI disclosures will be delayed to accommodate implementation of a new and comprehensive research administration platform, Streamlyne, which is expected to occur on October 17, 2022. Streamlyne will replace Cayuse according to the following schedule:
- October 4, 2022 - October 16, 2022, Streamlyne will be available through the Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) to initiate proposals, with Cauyse still being used by OSP in parallel with Streamlyne.
- Effective October 17, 2022, Cayuse will no longer be available and all proposals will need to be submitted using Streamlyne.
- In light of the above schedule, all research investigators will be able to submit their COI disclosures through our current portal and Opinio surveys (available via links/menu provided above, at the beginning of this web page) up until October 16, 2022.
- In addition, between October 4, 2022 and October 16, 2022, researchers will be able to file their annual COI disclosures in Streamlyne. However, depending on how their legacy data may be imported from OSP records and depending on how their new Streamlyne records are entered and associated within the Proposal Development module in Streamlyne during this trial period, COI disclosures in Streamlyne may not render correctly. Although we encourage all investigators to use Streamlyne as soon as they are able to after October 4, please be aware of these implications during this 2 week trial period and kindly allot additional time for OSP and our office to remedy any issues which may arise.
- Effective October 17, 2022, all investigators can begin using Streamlyne to its full functionality, including all aspects of COI disclosures.
- On October 30, 2022, call for annual disclosures will be issued with Streamlyne fully in effect for all COI disclosures.
- Investigators required to disclose are individuals (including faculty, staff and students) responsible for a task that could have a significant effect on the design, conduct or reporting of UNM research, even if the individual does not have sole or primary responsibility for the task or the research.
- A non-UNM investigator is any person employed by an entity other than UNM, working pursuant to a sub-award agreement with UNM, an independent contractor or collaborator, or otherwise not employed by UNM who could have a significant effect on the design, conduct or reporting of UNM research or the research performed under a sub-award issued by UNM.
- Investigators are urged to submit their COI disclosure during the official submission period for the academic year which is from mid-August through mid-September.
