Conflict of Interest
Identifying conflicts of interest
In general, conflicts of interest fall into these three categories:
University Intellectual Property: While CU can license and be paid for its intellectual property, conflicts may arise when the organizations that license that property have competing interests or relationships.
Purchasing: Purchasing conflicts arise when a CU or campus official has a financial, business or personal interest in a vendor who has partnered or will partner with the university.
Individual Conflicts of Interest: CU officials and employees must disclose any major relationships they have with external parties that could violate CU policies to prevent any real or perceived conflicts of interest.
