Conflict of Interest (COI) Check

Grants Officers must run a COI check on each proposal record in the system in order to be in compliance with OSI’s COI Policy.

Clicking on the “COI Check” button at the proposal level will run the organization’s legal name field, for organizational grants, and individual names (for individual grants) against the Conflict of Interest Disclosure Site database maintained by Office of General Counsel.

If a potential match is found the Office of General Counsel staff is notified to investigate the potential match.

If necessary, Office of General Counsel staff will contact the program awarding the grant and ask them to submit a Conflict of Interests Policy and Questionnaire to the COI Committee for review. (please see the questionnaire in the appendix below).

Once approved by the COI Committee the potential match is cleared on the proposal record and the grant can proceed.

Additional checks for COIs may be done in KARL (on the individual identified as the authorized signatory) and Contracts Online (on the individual identified as the authorized signatory and the organization implementing the grant work).

 Should a potential match come up during these checks, GOs should work with legal to obtain a completed Conflict of Interests Policy and Questionnaire and additional information from program staff.
