Overview and Navigation
The Financial Interest Disclosure System (FIDS) replaces the paper-based procedure, and reduces the administrative burden for faculty disclosing Significant Financial Interests (SFI) related to research projects. Access FIDS at http://uw.edu/research/fids/
You will need to use FIDS to
- disclose your SFI for each eGC1, new or recently awarded, 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 Center for Commercialization (C4C/technology transfer) or Human Subjects Division (HSD).

- who must disclose Significant Financial Interest (SFI), see GIM 10: Financial Conflict of Interest Policy
