Standing Committee on Financial Conflicts of Interest

In July, 2010, the President and Fellows of Harvard College approved a University-wide "Policy on Individual Financial Conflicts of Interest for Persons Holding Faculty and Teaching Appointments".  The Policy requires each School to develop robust procedures for the review and disposition of their faculty members' mandatory annual and transactional reporting of all financial relationships, of a kind and magnitude to be determined by each School, that may be related to the faculty members' full spectrum of academic responsibilities.  The University Standing Committee on Financial Conflicts of Interest, together with the Vice Provost for Research, will be the formal instrument for overseeing the implementation plans of the various Schools.
