University Conflict of Interests Disclosure


The University of Tennessee’s Fiscal Policy FI0125, on Conflict of Interests, requires all regular (benefits-eligible) faculty and staff to disclose certain outside interests and activities. These disclosure requirements help prevent or minimize conflicts between an employee’s outside interests and his or her university responsibilities. 

To better facilitate the process, IRIS has recently redesigned the University’s Conflicts of Interest disclosure process to be integrated with IRIS workflow and utilize the new IRIS Mobile platform.

  • The form is now available on the IRIS Mobile platform. IRIS Mobile is available to all users, not just those with IRIS access. Simply sign in with your NetID and Password.
  • Documentation is available on the IRIS OID Help Website for both submitting and approving this form.
  • For those involved with Public Health System (PHS) research, you will no longer have to access a separate form to fill out additional information as required by Fiscal Policy FI0125. The PHS portion will now be connected with the regular form.

As a reminder, completing this form by October 31, 2018 is a requirement for all regular faculty and staff. If you previously completed a disclosure form in 2018 and have no new information to disclose then you do not have to submit a new form by the October deadline.  If you have any questions about the form, please email irishelpdesk@tennessee.edu. For policy-related questions, please contact the Office of Human Resources at 423-425-4221.
