What is the MyDisclosure Application?
MyDisclosure is an online application that is anticipated to be released by August 2015. It will replace the paper based Report of Non-University Activities (RNUA) disclosure as well as sponsor-specific (e.g., NIH, PHS, NSF) disclosure processes. MyDisclosure is part of the Office of Vice Chancellor for Research START myResearch initiative. The goal of START myResearch and MyDisclosure is to give faculty, staff, investigators and administrators web-based access to administrative data. For more information about START myResearch please visit, http://web.uillinois.edu/start_myresearch/
Who should attend?
Any faculty, staff or students are welcome to attend the session to preview the upcoming disclosure application. The open forums are aimed at anyone who is required by University Policy to make a disclosure or review a disclosure related to conflict of commitment or interest, whether for annual reporting or sponsor specific disclosure requirements.
What will I learn?
You will learn about the OVCR’s plan to release the application to the campus and what you can do as an employee making a disclosure or as an administrator to prepare for the online system. The presentation includes a brief demonstration of the MyDisclosure application.
If you have any questions, please contact COI@uic.edu.
