This Policy is to promote objectivity in research by establishing standards that provide a reasonable expectation that the design, conduct, and reporting of sponsored research is performed in a manner that is free from bias resulting from Investigator financial conflict of interest. This Policy is consistent with Kineta’s® (i) form of Proprietary Information and Inventions Agreement, including but not limited to the terms related to duties, non-competition and no conflicts, which has been entered into with each Kineta employee and (ii) Employee Handbook Conflicts of Interest Section 1.7.
Disclosure Reporting Requirements
Any employee that is planning to participate in any Federally-funded research is responsible for (i) disclosing to the HR Department any Significant Financial Interests (as defined below) and those of the employee’s spouse and dependent children no later than the date of submission of Kineta’s proposal for Federally-funded research, and (ii) submitting an updated disclosure of Significant Financial Interests within 30 days of discovering or acquiring a new significant interest. For purposes of this Policy, “Significant Financial Interest” means a financial interest in which the value of any remuneration received from the entity in the 12 month preceding the disclosure and the value of any equity interest exceeds $5,000.
An employee must refrain from participating in any questionable activities unless and until the employee is expressly permitted to do so by HR Department, who shall determine whether the questionable situation or activity presents a potential conflict of interest.
Employees must disclose all Significant Financial Interests in advance of the submission of any research proposals that (i) would reasonably appear to be affected by the research or educational activities funded by the agency, or (ii) are in entities that would reasonably appear to be affected by such activities.
Financial disclosures are to be indicated on the Financial Conflict of Interest and Disclosure Form and will be reviewed by the HR Department.
The HR Department will review such disclosures to determine whether the employee’s Significant Financial Interest is related to PHS-funded research and whether the Significant Financial Interest is a financial conflict of interest.
Management of Policy
The HR Department shall manage conflicts to reduce or eliminate any Significant Conflicts of Interest, provide reports to government entities (as applicable), maintain records, and enforce this Policy.
Employees shall promptly disclose all potential conflicts of interest and conflicts of commitment in conformance with this Policy.
The HR Department shall review all disclosure forms and determine if a conflict of interest or conflict of commitment exists and if so, what actions are to be taken. Decisions will be based on what is in the best interest of Kineta, in accordance with applicable regulations. The individual disclosing the potential conflict of interest of conflict of commitment cannot be involved in the decision process.
The HR Department shall report all Significant Conflicts of Interest and resolutions to Kineta’s board of directors.
Remedies and Non-Compliance
Employees who fail or neglect to disclose potential conflicts of interest will be subject to disciplinary action.
If Kineta identifies a significant financial conflict of interest that was not disclosed in a timely matter, it will review such significant financial interest and determine whether a financial interest exists and if so, implement a management plan with actions that have been and will be taken to manage, reduce or eliminate any conflict of interest.
