Research Billing Compliance

All members of the academic community – faculty, staff, and students – are expected to satisfy institutional stewardship obligations and conduct their research in compliance with federal, state, and local laws, and with the policies and procedures of the University.

Research compliance encompasses a wide variety of issues including human and animal subjects; pre- and post-award management; access to and retention of data; environmental and workplace safety; intellectual property; conflicts of interest; and scholarly integrity in research.

At the University of Washington, many different departments contribute to the advancement of research by engaging in activities that enhance and protect the University’s research efforts. To help navigate the numerous policies and regulations governing research, this site features a list of departments with responsibility for regulatory and policy compliance across the research environment and links to relevant information under their ownership.

UW Medicine Compliance is responsible for research billing compliance, as well as the overlapping billing-related compliance for Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) devices and Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) devices (also known as Humanitarian Use Devices – HUDs).
