Privately Funded

The State of California requires the Principal Investigator to complete and submit an online 700-U Form if a non-governmental entity funds or supports the research, in whole or in part, by a contract, grant or other funds earmarked by the donor for a specific project or for a specific researcher.

Human Subject Research

If your privately funded research involves human subjects, two online forms (700-U and Form 800) must be completed and submitted under UC Davis Policy as follows:

700-U

Only the Principal Investigator (per UC Davis PPM 230-05) must complete and submit a online 700-U.  Completion of the 700-U is not required if the State has placed the  sponsor on the exempt list. (http://www.fppc.ca.gov/legal/regs/current/18755.pdf).  If the sponsor is not on the exempt list, the PI must:

  • Complete, sign and submit an online Form 700-U
  • If you answered yes to any questions on the 700-U, you must also complete and submit a online Supplemental Form.  NOTE: A “Positive Disclosure” cannot be reviewed without a completed Supplemental Form.  Failure to submit a completed and signed Supplement Form may result in a delay in funding.

Please submit the Form 700-U (and Supplemental Form, if applicable) online at the eCOI Online Disclosure Page:  https://or-forms.ucdavis.edu/

Form 800

If your privately funded research involves human subjects, you must also complete and submit an online Form 800  (per UC Davis PPM 230-05).   The PI, and all other Investigators on the project, must complete the online Form and certify whether or not have any significant financial interests related to the project.  For any Investigator on the project who has a significant financial interest, he or she must also complete and submit a Supplemental Form for each entity in which a financial interest exists. Supplemental Form 

Non-Human Subject Research

If your privately funded research does not involve human subjects, then only the PI needs to complete and submit an online Form 700-U (and Supplemental if applicable) following the process indicated above.  A Form 800 is not required.
