March 21st 2011, notice to Collegiate Contacts from Ward Schendel, Associate Program Director, University Conflict of Interest Program
The REPA filing process remains unavailable. We are working with the technology personnel to make the system operational and hope to have more information for you later this week. More
The approval portion of the system is functioning, but new filings cannot be made. Looking at this situation in the most positive light, this is an opportunity to complete the review and approval of the over 2000 REPAs already filed.
We ask that you encourage all those individuals required to file a REPA to complete the mandatory conflict of interest training required under the Administrative Policy: Individual Conflicts of Interest. The web-based training module, Conflicts of Interest: Balancing Risk and Opportunities, is found online
