Conflict of Interest

As part of Syracuse University’s ongoing commitment to conduct all of its business activities in a fair and ethical manner, all non-bargaining unit employees are required annually to file a brief Conflict of Interest (COI) disclosure questionnaire. The purpose of these disclosures is to identify potential situations where an employee or close relative may be in a position to inappropriately influence or benefit from a financial transaction or employment relationship. Once identified, every effort is made to mitigate the potential conflict in order to avoid the possibility or appearance of impropriety.

The annual COI disclosure process is administered through the Comptroller’s Office and is typically launched in late April when employees are instructed to login to the MySlice portal and complete their personalized online COI disclosure questionnaire. Employees with questions or concerns related to COI, or need to update their current COI disclosure questionnaire for any reason, should contact the COI Administrator via email at
