How to Update Your Financial Interest Disclosure (FID) Form
Federal Regulations and University policy requires Covered Individuals to update their FID form annually and no later than the 30th day after acquiring a new financial interest that requires disclosure.
Upon receipt of the updated FID form, the Conflict of Interest (COI) Official will determine if a potential conflict of interest exists that requires a management plan. If a management plan was previously established, the COI Official will determine if the plan requires revision.
Below are the instructions for updating your FID form using eProtocol.
Firefox is the recommended web-browser when using eProtocol. You will need to allow pop-up windows for spike.orsc.utexas.edu before logging in.
- Use your UT EID and password to log in to eProtocol at: https://spike.orsc.utexas.edu/fid (Opens new window).
NOTE: If you start an update and return at a later time to edit, please resume the update process starting at Step 5.
- When you arrive at your Home page, locate your FID ID under “Accepted FIDs.” Do NOT create a new FID.
- Select the FID ID number. A pop-up window will appear with three options. Select the first option, “Start Update,” and the “OK” button.
- Your Home page will now show an “Update” section with the FID ID that you selected to update.
- Select the FID ID in the “Update” section and respond to the pop-up window by selecting “Edit.” The FID form will appear in a pop-up window, beginning with the Policy section.
- Use the “Next” and “Previous” buttons to navigate through the pages of the form. Modify the sections that require updating by adding or removing information.
- Ensure that the “Research” section reflects the University research projects you are or will be involved in (regardless of funding or funding source) per the instructions in the Research section.
- Use the Next button to proceed to the “Check” section or go to “Check” directly from the blue menu on the left.
- Use the Next button to proceed to the Submit section and select the “Submit FID Form” button.
You will receive a confirmation e-mail when the FID is successfully submitted.
