The PI on a new application is not yet Harvard employee but listed on the grant proposal to do research here, so (s)he doesn’t have access to Harvard’s systems, including GMAS and OAR. What do I do if they can’t submit a COI certification using OAR?

If the PI is not yet employed by Harvard, he/she must fill out a paper COI Disclosure Statement form and an Outside Activities Reporting form. Once the PI completes both forms, they will be uploaded to GMAS. For approval to submit, ARI must review and approve. Once the PI has started employment at Harvard and is set up in OAR, the disclosure forms will be uploaded to the OAR system.
