What is eCOI?

The Office of Research Affairs has signed a contract with Click Commerce for a platform to create an electronic conflict of interest (eCOI) disclosure process (Click Commerce is the same platform being used at UC San Diego for the eMTA and eDisclosure processes).  The eCOI system will integrate with other UC San Diego systems to automate and facilitate the completion of conflict of interest disclosure forms for its employees and affiliates.    

Some of the key features of the eCOI system include:  

  • Provide a seamless and user friendly web-based eCOI system 
  • Integration of the eCOI system with Coeus to pre-populate the project information as well as trigger and track disclosure requests
  • Retain previous disclosure data so discloser can update or certify the information as applicable
  • Provide the ability for the discloser to designate a proxy to assist with the questionnaire completion
  • Provide a dashboard for discloser, designated proxies and applicable institutional offices to see disclosure statuses
  • Decrease institutional risk through quicker processing of disclosure information and identification of conflict of interest issues 

When will eCOI go live?

eCOI is scheduled to go live for all of campus and Health Sciences in April 2017.
