Is there a comprehensive list of FAQs?
Central Campus is keeping an FAQ list through their website.
I remembered something that I should have already disclosed... What do I do?
Contact Other.Support.Questions@umich.edu immediately to schedule a 1-1 discussion. Because the discovery may impact multiple projects, a comprehensive plan for disclosure to all sponsors on all projects impacted will be necessary. The team at Other.Support.Questions@umich.edu can help navigate and create a plan for you and your team to follow.
What constitutes “Consulting” that needs to be disclosed?
External consulting or collaboration agreements (also called personal services agreements) that involve the design, conduct, or reporting of research need to be included as part of Other Support. If the agreement is with a non-US entity, also include the agreement as supporting documentation. If not in English, also provide an English-language copy of the agreement. (Google Translate is fine.)
Examples of consulting work that likely involves the "design, conduct, or reporting of research" include:
- work that may result in publication in an academic journal,
- designing a protocol,
- data analysis,
- serving on a steering committee for a clinical trial
How do I know if my outside agreement is considered foreign?
It is sometimes hard to tell, especially if the company is part of a larger organization with home offices in another country. If you are unsure if an outside agreement is with a foreign entity (and therefore would require submission of a copy of the agreement with your Other Support), U-M is advising that you may reference the subsidiary name and/or address listed in your agreement.
