(Recorded Webinar) Conflicts of Interest: Compliance Requirements and Case Studies

This webinar is closed to new enrollments. 
Duration: 60 minutes
Recorded on: 11/18/2021

As recipients of federal funds and as tax-exempt organizations, health centers must develop conflict of interest policies and procedures. While most health centers have a policy and procedure, they still find it challenging to identify interests, determine whether a conflict exists, and address a conflict. Many health centers don’t realize their procedure is unclear or their documentation is lacking until it is too late – either a decision has been made or an audit has identified an issue.

In this webinar, the presenters will review the relevant federal rules and regulations regarding conflicts of interest, discuss the requirements for demonstrating compliance with the conflict of interest requirements in HRSA’s Health Center Compliance Program Manual, and highlight best practices on implementing an effective process for the disclosure of interests. The presenters will also share responses to several frequently asked questions in this area, including:

  • Are all health center employees required to complete a disclosure form annually?
  • Who should receive the disclosure forms and what should they do with them?
  • Is it a conflict of interest if our Board member…owns a restaurant and we order food from their restaurant? Is employed by a private foundation? Works for another non-profit?

Target Audience

  • Compliance Officers/Risk Managers
  • Grants Management Staff
  • Fiscal Staff
  • Human Resources Staff
  • CEOs/ Directors
