I. Policy Statement BJC HealthCare ( BJC ) is committed to overseeing the conduct of research in a manner that ensures the integrity of the research process and maintains the public trust and that of sponsors in the integrity and credibility of its faculty, its staff, and its research programs. This commitment requires BJC to ensure that there is no reasonable perception that research results are biased by the external commitments and financial interests of persons who are responsible for the design, conduct, reporting, or direct administration of BJC member organization research. This policy identifies and addresses the real or apparent financial conflicts of interest presented by the intersection of research activities and personal financial interests, and defines the requirements of all research personnel to ensure that those activities are conducted objectively and without consideration of personal financial gain. II. Definitions: BJC: Collectively BJC HealthCare, BJC Member Organizations, BJC Service Organizations, and their Affiliates, as defined in the Amended and Restated System Affiliation Agreement dated March 11, 2009, and any other entities which become Institutions or Affiliates as defined in and pursuant to said Agreement, as may be amended, from time to time. Conflict Management: Measures taken to address the risk of bias or the appearance of bias, protect research subjects, and maintain public trust in the institution s research and its personnel when research personnel may have a real or apparent financial conflict of interest

External Relationships and Research BJC recognizes the value of engagement in external organizations and activities. Such activities and relationships enable the transfer of knowledge and skills that enhance teaching, research, service, and inspire solutions to benefit the world. Entrepreneurial endeavors and productive relationships with businesses can stimulate inquiry and provide opportunities to further academic research. However, the financial interests that accompany such relationships may lead to real or apparent financial conflicts of interest. 2. Legal Compliance This policy promotes compliance with all applicable federal and state laws and regulations regarding financial conflicts of interest, including the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Food and Drug Administration. 3. Full and Accurate Reporting Real and potential financial conflicts of interest may arise from any number and type of external commitments and financial interests, and particular expertise is required to determine whether they could affect, or could be perceived to affect, research activities and results. BJC research personnel are required to report fully and accurately all external commitments and all research-related financial interests in accordance with the procedures for each campus, in order to provide sufficient information for the identification of real and potential financial conflicts of interest. Research personnel must include the external commitments and financial interests of his/her spouse or same-sex partner and dependent child(ren) in accordance with the procedures for each campus. 4. Timely Reporting

5 Page 5 of 11 Reports of external commitments and financial interests must be made at regular intervals, as required by BJC policy and federal regulation, to allow the BJC Member or Affiliate to identify and manage real and apparent financial conflicts of interest in a timely manner.

Oversight A central review committee at each BJC Member or Affiliate develops conflict review procedures that ensure expert, confidential, and consistent review of reports across BJC HealthCare. Reviewers identify situations in which external commitments and financial interests may potentially compromise, or appear to compromise, the professional judgment of research personnel in conducting or reporting research, including the collection, analysis, and interpretation of data, the hiring of staff, procurement of materials, sharing of results, choice of protocol, involvement of human participants, and the use of statistical methods. 6. Training Requirements The RAD of each BJC Member or Affiliate is responsible for dissemination of this policy along with applicable federal regulations available at: All research personnel are required to complete conflict of interest training when they first seek funding from the PHS, the National Science Foundation, the American Heart Association, or any other agency which requires disclosure, as well as no less than every four years thereafter.

Appeals Process: Within two weeks of notification of the management plan, research personnel must acknowledge in writing agreement to comply with any required management plan, or submit a written request for reconsideration to the BJC Member or Affiliate s RAD, which has the authority to review and affirm the previous decision or amend the management plan. The BJC Member or Affiliate s RAD will notify the research personnel of the result of the appeal and issue a binding decision. 12. Sanctions for Noncompliance a. Submitting the annual report by the filing deadline is a requirement of all research personnel. During the submission timeframe, research personnel will be reminded of the reporting deadline. Those who fail to submit the report will be referred to the BJC Member or Affiliate s RAD leadership. At the discretion of the BJC Member or Affiliate s RAD, the failure of an individual to comply with reporting requirements may result in one or more of the following sanctions, until the report is submitted: The individual will be deemed ineligible to maintain principal investigator status on sponsored projects Any annual salary increase will be withdrawn until the individual comes into compliance The individual s research activities and associated salary will be suspended until the individual comes into compliance. Any suspension of research activities and associated salary will be undertaken in accordance with BJC policies and codes, including the existing BJC Human Resources policies related to Disciplinary Action.

9 Page 9 of 11 For studies that receive NIH funding, the NIH will be promptly notified of noncompliance with this policy. b. In any case which the Department of Health and Human Services determines that a NIH-funded research project of clinical research whose purpose is to evaluate the safety or effectiveness of a drug, medical device, or treatment has been designed, conducted, or reported by Research Personnel with an Financial Conflict of Interest that was not managed or reported by the BJC Member or Entity, the Research personnel must: i.
