Management plans are implemented when it is determined that an actual or potential conflict of interest has been identified. The purpose of a management plan is to mitigate or eliminate the potential for bias in extramurally-funded activities. Details of a management plan vary depending on the conflict. Follow this link to access the COI Management Plan Template, which should be used for informational purposes only. Contact ORC for more information on developing a COI Management Plan.
Common management plans terms include, but are not limited to:
- Disclosure of the existing conflict in related publications or presentations, to students, oversight committees (e.g., IRB, IACUC), and sponsors
- Recusal from decisions involving the outside company
- Appointment of senior administrators to oversee compliance with the terms of the plan
