New Research Management System (RMS) Proposal Certification (PC) Form Assurances for Department of Energy

Published April 27, 2022

Effective May 10, 2022, new assurances will be added to the PC Form. These assurances are being added as required by the Department of Energy’s (DOE) new Conflict of Interest policy.

The existing DOE verbiage on the PC form and the additional form for DOE (DOE Form: FGTRP & COI Template) will each be updated to include language related to Conflicts of Interest.    

These PC Form changes do not require a change to the current process:

  • When a Department Administrator (DA) generates the PC Form, the new DOE verbiage will be included on the signature page. DAs should obtain signatures and upload to RMS per normal process. Additionally for DOE proposals, the DA will need to click the icon in the PC Form to get the DOE Form: FGTRP & COI Template. Signatures should be obtained and documents should be uploaded into RMS in the “WU Full Review Docs” tab with the Signed PC Form – Other Attachments.

The Office of Sponsored Research Services will allow the old version of the PC Form for grant submissions through June 9, 2022. Beyond June 10, 2022, the new version of the PC Form will be required.

Please share this with all faculty and staff who may need this information.

If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Sponsored Research Services​.
