IF YOU ARE REQUIRED TO FILE A
CONFLICT OF INTEREST DISCLOSURE FOR 2013
Ita Leitner - Conflict of Interest Manager (303) 724-0034
UC Denver encourages and supports outside interactions of its faculty and student employees with federal, state, and local governments, and with business and industry as important parts of their research, education, and public service activities. In limited cases, similar opportunities are encouraged for University staff members as well.
Since outside interactions also carry with them an increased potential for conflict of interest and/or commitment, either actual or perceived, UC Denver should have adequate procedures for identifying potential conflicts through annual disclosure, and ensure rigorous and consistent review of such disclosures. A disclosure in and of itself is not suggestive of any impropriety; rather, it is customary and usual and benefits both the individual and the University. Indeed, full disclosure of relevant information and the establishment of a public record are in the best interest of both the UC Denver and its faculty and student employees.
