Investigators must disclose all identified significant financial interest (SFI) to the Office of Research Compliance (ORC):

  • At least once annually
  • No later than the time of application for Public Health Service (PHS)–funded research
  • Within 30 days of acquiring or identifying a new SFI

Principal investigators must ensure that all investigators working under their direction on a research project disclose any identified SFIs prior to their participation on the project. In addition, principal investigators need to indicate, upon submission of a proposal/application to the Office of Sponsored Research, if they or any project investigators have SFI that may be related to the proposed project.

Huron's Click Portal, a software platform at Seattle Children's, houses the institution's electronic financial interest disclosure system. This is a secure system which can only be accessed with Seattle Children’s network credentials; only authorized individuals will have access to disclosure information. All investigators must submit their Financial Disclosures to the Office of Research Compliance using the Click system.

If you are a new investigator seeking to submit a financial interest disclosure and have not received a disclosure notification email from, please contact the Office of Research Compliance.


For questions regarding what qualifies as an SFI or when to make a disclosure, contact the Office of Research Compliance.
