What is a conflict of interest?



Outside activities draw upon the knowledge, skills, or abilities employees use to fulfill institutional responsibilities and are performed for outside entities. Examples include consulting, teaching appointments at other universities, expert witness services, industry advisory board participation, etc. Please review theFundamental Considerations for UF Employees.

Who needs to complete the UFOLIO form?

Currently, UFOLIO is available for four populations: 1) Faculty, adjuncts, and postdoctoral associates holding a 0.26 FTE or higher appointment, 2) High-level TEAMS staff (generally, this population includes director-level staff and above), 3) College of Medicine TEAMS Physicians in the Regional Physician Network, and 4) UFIRST key personnel. If you are in these populations, you can access UFOLIO and submit your Disclosure of Interest (DOI) atufolio.compliance.ufl.edu.

I am not in the current UFOLIO population. How do I disclose my outside activities and interests?



You are required to obtain prior approval for certain outside activities and interests; please submit disclosures for outside activities at least 30 days before the anticipated start date.For those that submit through UFOLIO: your UFOLIO portfolio should be updated annually at a minimum based on the date of last approval, and even if you do not have an outside activity to report, you still have to submit that you have nothing to disclose in the system.
