UF’s new centralized disclosure review office
UFOLIO is currently available to faculty, adjuncts, and postdoctoral associates holding a 0.26 FTE or higher appointment. If you are NOT in that population, please use the "Non-UFOLIO Disclosures" link below.
Do you need help figuring out how to do something in UFOLIO? Check out this new guide with common UFOLIO functionality questions. Please note, there are two versions of this guide: the print version has no screen shots and can be easily printed and referenced, and the screen version is not ideal for printing but has images and screen shots which are easy to follow.
Are you uncertain if an activity should be disclosed in UFOLIO? This resource guides you through steps to determine if something is an “inside activity” that is part of an employee’s UF job duties. Inside activities should not be disclosed in UFOLIO; outside activities must be disclosed in advance in UFOLIO if they fall under one of UF’s 11 disclosure types.
In coordination with HR Training and Organizational Development, the COI Program has developed two UFOLIO training courses. The first course is designed to give an overview of what UFOLIO is, why it is being used, and what it means for employees. The second course is designed for Level 1 Reviewers (supervisors) and will explain what is expected of a Level 1 Reviewer with step-by-step instructions.
This chart describes the categories of activities/interests to disclose with examples and exceptions for each category.
If you’re receiving an error message when attempting to log in to UFOLIO, take a look at this post for assistance.
This list provides common examples of outside activities that must be disclosed in UFOLIO, as well as examples of inside and outside activities that should NOT be disclosed in UFOLIO. If your activity is not on this list and you need further assistance, please contact the COI Program at UFOLIOemail@example.com.
If you are a Level 1 reviewer in UFOLIO, this list provides guidance on what to consider when reviewing your employees’ disclosures.
Once a disclosure is submitted in UFOLIO, it goes through a minimum of two reviews. Depending on the type and nature of the disclosure, an additional “ancillary” review by subject matter experts may be necessary.
UFOLIO makes reporting outside activities and interests easy by identifying and providing helpful information regarding the 11 types of required disclosures.
This resource provides a list of risk factors that the COI Program reviews for, as well as illustrative examples of types of disclosures for each level of risk.
