Conflict of Interest Disclosure Guidance
Annual Conflict of Interest Disclosure Process for Administrators
In furtherance of NYU’s commitment to high ethical standards and compliance with University policies and laws, each year, the Office of Compliance and Risk Management administers the University's Annual Conflict of Interest Disclosure Process for Administrators. As part of this process, the Office of Compliance and Risk Management requests designated administrators to complete an Annual Conflict of Interest Questionnaire (Annual Questionnaire).
Completing the Annual Questionnaire
As we launch this year’s Annual Conflict of Interest Disclosure Process for Administrators, designated administrators should expect to receive an email with a link to the Annual Questionnaire from Convercent, an NYU service provider that administers this process for the Office of Compliance and Risk Management. This year’s Annual Questionaire will be sent to designated administrators in June 2021. Please be sure to look for your initial welcome email and invitation from Convercent to get started. You can log back into your employee dashboard as often as needed to complete the required action prior to the specified due date by going to nyu.edu/compliance/coi.
What Time Period Does the Annual Questionnaire Cover?
The period covered by the Annual Questionnaire includes the full academic year beginning September 1, 2019 through August 31, 2020, as well as the current academic year, from September 1, 2020 through the date of completion of the Annual Questionnaire.
When is the Annual Questionnaire Due?
The Annual Questionnaire is due on June 25, 2021 for designated administrators at Washington Square, NYU Abu Dhabi and NYU Shanghai. Recipients will receive email reminders regarding any disclosure action required. Please be sure to look for your initial welcome email and invitation from Convercent to get started.
