Conflict of Interest Annual Disclosure Process Opens February 1

The Conflict of Interest annual disclosure process for faculty and staff launches February 1 in eDisclosure. All eligible faculty and staff will receive an email with a personalized link to the eDisclosure system and instructions for completing the disclosure form. We participate in this process annually to understand what outside activities faculty and staff are engaged in that may relate to their Northwestern roles and responsibilities, and to demonstrate that business decisions are made with the highest ethical standards.

Key dates

HR administrators

Please make sure that the COI approvers listed in myHR are correct for staff in your unit. Staff members' disclosures are routed for review in eDisclosure based on who is listed as the person's COI approver in myHR. COI approvers are usually one's manager or the manager's designee. Please refer to our Updating Approvers guide for guidance in checking (and updating, if required) employees' COI approvers in myHR.

Your cooperation is appreciated. If you have questions, please contact the Northwestern Conflict of Interest Office at or 847-467-4515.
