Under federal law and UC Davis Policy (per UC Davis PPM 230-07), if your research is sponsored by a PHS agency or an entity that has adopted the PHS rules, you must complete and submit the Online Disclosure and Online Training.
Please see the list of sponsors that require compliance for PHS Regulations. This list of PHS agencies is taken from the U.S. DHHS Organizational Chart. Because there may be changes, if the agency you are interested in is not on this list and you are unsure if it is a PHS agency, check with the Research Compliance & Integrity unit.

The COIR (Conflict of Interest for Researchers Briefing) training was updated in 2016 which continues to encompass PHS training. Any investigator who completes the COIR training will fulfill the NIH (PHS) mandatory training which is required every 4 years.
In addition, COIR is also mandated by UCOP for all extramurally funded researchers every 2 years.
