UAlbany Conflicts of Interest in Sponsored Programs

Conflicts of Interest (COI)


As the University at Albany makes this change from a paper-based COI Disclosure process to the PACS electronic system, the Office of Regulatory and Research Compliance is committed to providing flexible training options to our various campus stakeholders and certainly, when needed, to train one-on-one when the below dates do not fit into your schedule. To inquire further about these opportunities, please email

On a regular basis, this page will be updated with new training dates and corresponding training documentation for our faculty and staff. To self-register for dates that fit into your personal schedules, please click on the date you would like and complete the registration form. The forms will close automatically when room capacity is reached. Note: Registration for these opportunities is required as they will be canceled if no one has committed to attend. Also, given the limited availability of campus computer labs sessions will require a personal laptop.

Training Registration

Note: Please check back frequently as dates/times will be added on a regular basis.

The next training dates are being determined. If you need in-person training please contact to make arrangements.
