UBC is implementing a new system to collect Conflict of Interest declarations for staff with specific management responsibilities. Staff members who are required to complete a declaration in the new system will be contacted directly over the next several months.
Starting in June, 2018, UBC staff with advanced management responsibilities (supervisory or signing authority) will be asked to complete annual declarations through the new Staff Conflict of Interest (SCOI) system. Declarations will be forwarded to supervisors for review and approval.
A new website has also launched to help staff learn about Policy SC3 – COI (formerly Policy #97), how to identify conflicts, how to complete the COI declaration, and how to develop good management plans when conflicts arise.
