My PI is out of town and hasn’t submitted a COI certification for his/her proposal, which is due soon. If the PI doesn’t certify before the proposal due date, can the proposal still be submitted? Who can I speak to for an exception to the policy?


The outside activity disclosure certification must be completed by proposal submission. If the PI is having difficulty completing their submission, he/she should contact ARI for assistance.  Additionally, you can let your SPA contact know and they will alert ARI is well. 

ARI can be reached at or (617)432-1343.
