Outside Activity

Have you acquired a new financial interest not previously reported in your Outside Activity Report? For example, new travel or consulting services? Are you joining an existing study and have yet to submit your research certification?


  • Remember to update and submit your Outside Activity Report if you have acquired a new financial interest not previously reported in your Disclosure statement.

  • The PHS FCOI regulations require that you update your disclosure(s) within 30 days to reflect any changes to your reported financial interests, including reimbursed or paid travel expenses, for federally funded research.

  • Remember you also need to submit a research certification if you are joining a study already in progress.

  • Update your Outside Activity Report and remove any disclosures that are 13 months old or older.

  • Access Click Commerce at esupport.hms.harvard.edu/COI to update your Outside Activity Report within 30 days of the new relationship.

  • If you have any questions, please contact COI_Administrator@hphc.org.
