If Robin.Parker@hhs.gov requested your Office of Research Integrity (ORI) Annual Report on Possible Research Misconduct for 2022, you are responsible for filing it on behalf of your company no later than April 30, 2023.
The ORI oversees and directs Public Health Service (PHS) research integrity activities on behalf of the Secretary of Health and Human Services (with the exception of the regulatory research integrity activities of the Food and Drug Administration).
Most small businesses do not have their own written policy regarding research misconduct, so the ORI provides small businesses the Small Organization Statement in lieu of a formal institutional policy. Go to this link on the ORI website for the template and the link for the Annual Report system.
By submitting this statement, your small business agrees to report all allegations of research misconduct to ORI. This is an annual requirement for all institutions that received HHS federal funding.
