EcoHealth Alliance Policy Regarding Conflict of Interest in Research

EcoHealth Alliance's research is conducted without bias and with the highest scientific and ethical standards.

EcoHealth Alliance (‘EHA”) is the recipient of various grant awards from federal agencies including the National Institute of Health, the National Science Foundation, US Fish and Wildlife Service, and the US Agency for International Development and the Department of Defense. As a research organization, EcoHealth Alliance is committed to preserving the public’s trust that the research conducted by us and supported by public and private funds is conducted without bias and with the highest scientific and ethical standards.  
 
We believe that strengthening our existing regulations on managing financial conflicts of interest is key to assuring the public that EcoHealth Alliance and the institutions and individuals we work with are taking a rigorous approach to managing the essential relationships between the government, federally-funded research institutions, and the private sector. To assure rigorous attention to this policy, we have, therefore elected to apply adopted the standards below to all grant activities without regard to the source of funding.

EcoHealth Alliance will apply the requirements for disclosure of Financial Conflict of Interest as promulgated by the U.S. Public Health Service (“PHS”) as set forth in 45 CFR (Code of Federal Regulations) Part 94 and 42CFR Part 50, Subpart F as amended in 2011. All sub-recipients, sub-contractors, and consultants working with EHA should review these requirements and will be required to certify that they are in compliance throughout their activities with EHA. A copy of the EHA Grant Management Manual is available upon request to the EHA Chief Financial Officer at kasdan@ecohealthalliance.org.
 
All institutions and senior or key individuals contracting with EHA shall be required to disclose any and all instances of a “significant financial interest that could directly and significantly affect the design, conduct, or reporting of EHA supported research. A senior or key individual means the Project Director (“PD”) or Principal Investigator (“PI”) identified in the grant application, progress report, or any other report required by EHA for the management of the award.  This requirement extends to any institution that participates in EHA sponsored research as a sub-recipient or to independent contractors likewise supported by EHA awards.
