HMS is submitting a proposal with an investigator from another Harvard school or affiliated institution. Since HMS has distinct COI policies and procedures, should the investigator follow their own school's/affiliated institutions' or ours using OAR?

If the investigator is from another Harvard school or an affiliated institution but listed as an investigator on a grant proposal submitted through HMS, the investigator must follow the HMS process. When the investigator is added to the research team in GMAS, an OAR certification will be automatically created and the investigator will receive an email notification to complete the certification and upload their school or affiliated institution’s disclosure form. Alternatively, the investigator may give ARI permission to obtain a copy of their up-to-date disclosure from their school or institution on his/her behalf.
