Kuali Research Conflict of Interest provides functionality that supports the independent assessment of the COI reporter’s disclosed relationships with their research projects by allowing COI Admins to set dispositions for:
- Financial entity - project relationships.
Reviewers can make recommended dispositions for projects and for financial entity - project relationships. The Disposition options configured will then be used when you utilize either the Project Disposition or Recommended Disposition gadgets in the template. More information on project gadgets in the template can be found in the COI - Configuration - Project Requirements article. Below outlines how to configure the Disposition options.
Accessing COI Dispositions
To configure the options available to support your institution’s local policies and practices COI Admins have access to Dispositions in Configuration.
You can add additional options for Dispositions via the +Add Another option.
Once a disposition option is added you can use the pencil icon to edit or the deactivate option to remove the option from the dropdown (but remain for historical purposes).
Be aware, the order of the configured dispositions dictate the level of severity of the declaration disposition. The top disposition is the highest level of risk, whereas, the last option has the least amount of risk. This will affect the General Configuration option of Automatically approve annual disclosures that do not have any Financial Entities where the last disposition value (with least amount of risk) will be used in this automatic approval. To move the order of the Dispositions you can utilize the up/down arrows next to the options.
Once changes are made you will need to click on the Save button to take affect; or Cancel if you want to discard your changes.
