Overview and Navigation

The Financial Interest Disclosure System (FIDS) is an online system that investigators use to disclose Significant Financial Interests (SFI) related to their research projects.

Access FIDS at http://www.washington.edu/research/tools/fids/

You will need to use FIDS to

  • disclose your SFI for each eGC1 for which you are an investigator.
  • disclose changes you make to your SFI, including updating information, adding new SFI,  or deleting SFI.
  • disclose your SFI for CoMotion technology transfer or Human Subjects Division (HSD).
