For new proposal and contracts, for non-competing continuations/progress reports, and for yearly amendments to contracts, FCOIs must be submitted for all "investigators" and key personnel listed on the BMC proposal (including non-key and unpaid personnel if they fit the FCOI definition of "investigator"). FCOIs do not need to be submitted for personnel listed on a subcontract to an outside institution if this institution has an existing conflict of interest policy.
