Forms and Compliance

Proposal Routing

The UNK Research Portal is a secure electronic research administration system brought to you by Graduate Studies and Research to help UNK faculty, staff and administrators manage research projects. A quick start guide on use of the portal's paperless environment to start the internal approval form for a new grant submission can be viewed by clinking the following link: Quick Start User Guide or view the list of Frequently Asked Questions about the UNK Research Portal.


UNK personnel must disclose potential conflicts of interest when they propose financial relationships involving more than $5,000 with external organizations. This is done by completing an Interest and Activity Management form once per fiscal year (if there are no interests to disclose) or with each proposal (if there are interests that need to be disclosed). This form must be updated if there are changes in the employee's situation that would affect any of their responses on the form. Grant Accounts will not be established until the appropriate disclosure forms have been filed.


These memos have updated supplemental guidance for the University of Nebraska at Kearney community in obtaining and managing financial resources to enhance research, creative and scholarly activities.
