Back to Top Clarification on Disclosure of Travel Reimbursements for PHS Investigators

Note that any reimbursement amount must be disclosed within 30 days of travel (there is no minimum amount). In certain situations, it might be easier to disclose in advance. For instance, if you attend three meetings a year that are funded by the same entity, you could disclose all three in advance (provided that you know the dates, destination, etc.). You may update your most recent Financial Disclosure form anytime through the myUK site. See what the policy says about travel below & note what type of travel is excluded from the policy:

For an Investigator who applies for or receives funding through a PHS grant, cooperative agreement, or contract, a significant financial interest includes any reimbursed or sponsored travel (i.e., paid on behalf of the investigator rather than being reimbursed) that reasonably appears related to their institutional responsibilities. Excluded is travel that is reimbursed or sponsored by a Federal, state, or local government agency, an institution of higher education as defined at 20 U.S.C. 1001(a), an academic teaching hospital, a medical center, or a research institute that is affiliated with an institution of higher education.
