Example: an Investigator receives PHS funding to perform quantitative imaging and also does outside consulting for Amgen and AstraZeneca. The Investigator receives more than $5000 from each Entity for the consulting work, but the work involves drug development, not quantitative imaging. Does the $5000 from each Entity need to be disclosed if the work is not related to research?
Under GIM 10, Investigators participating in PHS-Funded Research must report SFIs as related to their Institutional Responsibilities. This is a broader disclosure than was previously required. GIM 10 defines “Institutional Responsibilities” as “any professional activity carried out by an Investigator or Innovator for which the Investigator or Innovator is compensated by the University, including: (i) sponsored activities (such as Research, training, and similar activities sponsored by external sources including federal, state and local governments and private businesses, corporations, foundations and organizations), (ii) non-sponsored activities (such as teaching, departmental or University supported Research, clinical work, and department and University administrative duties), and (iii) University-related public service.”
