Supervisor reviews of Annual Disclosure Certifications are due on June 15, 2022.  

Mandatory disclosers who completed an Annual Disclosure Certification last year may need to re-answer or add more information this year, as questions were added and revised. 

Mandatory disclosers who were hired after April 15, 2022 are required to complete an Annual Disclosure Certification within 30 days of their hire date. These individuals will receive an email notification within a few days of their start date. Supervisor reviews of their Annual Disclosure Certifications are due on a rolling basis. 

If you believe you should be a mandatory discloser, but you did not receive an email notification by March 18, verify that you meet the mandatory discloser criteria. Provided you meet the criteria, a senior administrator, chairperson, or responsibility center leader who supervises you should confirm and submit a request to add you as a mandatory discloser using this survey.
