Policies and Reporting Procedures
Financial Interest Reporting
All faculty and individuals holding teaching appointments, and anyone listed as principal investigator or key personnel (i.e., any person, regardless of title or position, who is responsible for the design, conduct, or reporting of research) on sponsored grants through the school are required to report outside financial interests online at the following PIN-enabled website: FINANCIAL INTEREST DISCLOSURE SYSTEM.
Prior to submitting your disclosure, please review the following documents:
Outside Activity Reporting
Primary and select secondary faculty members are also required to report their outside professional activities (OPA) online at the following PIN-enabled website: OPA REPORTING SYSTEM.
Individuals who are required to report their outside professional activities will be notified annually.
The Faculty of Public Health recognizes that its members may engage in outside professional work, and to the extent these activities serve the Faculty’s interests, as well as those of the participant, the Faculty of Public Health approves of such involvement. However, with the exception of work performed in lieu of summer salary, faculty members should ordinarily spend no more than 52 days per year (one day per week) in outside professional activities. Some outside work such as service on NIH Study Sections, committees of the NAS/NRC or IOM, or other public service activities, is considered part of a faculty member’s responsibilities.
Please refer to the Harvard University policy on outside professional activities for more information.
If you are unable to sign in to either of these PIN-enabled websites, you may request access by sending your name, title, department, and Harvard email address to email@example.com.
