Subcontracts and Non-University Employees
Individuals responsible for the “design, conduct, or reporting” of a PHS funded research project may include non-university personnel, such as subcontractor employees, collaborators, or consultants. If the subrecipients’ home institution does not have a PHS compliant COI policy, then that subrecipient must agree to be subject to the UNC Greensboro COI policy.
Note: Phase I Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) grants are excluded from the PHS COI regulations. Phases II & III are not.
