Department of Energy COI Requirements
On December 21, 2021, the Department of Energy (DOE) issued its new Interim Conflict of Interest Policy. This new policy establishes standards that provide a reasonable expectation that the design, conduct and reporting of projects funded wholly or in part by the DOE “will be free from bias resulting from financial conflicts of interest or organizational conflicts of interest.” The new DOE policy closely mirrors the COI requirements that have been in place for recipients of Public Health Service (PHS) funding.

NASA COI Requirements
On August 31, 2023, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) published a new Conflict of Interest Policy. This policy is very similar to the existing National Science Foundation (NSF) requirements. NASA’s COI requirements are effective December 1, 2023 and apply to any proposals, awards, or amended awards as of that date.
