IMPORTANT: Only signing official (SO) users can edit the Institution Profile, except for institutions that have a TTO administrator but no signing official, in which case, the TTO administrator can edit. For institutions with both an SO and TTO administrator, the TTO administrator can edit only the Extramural Technology Transfer Administration component.

Only SOs can see the Policy Documents tab, which contains the financial conflict of interest policy.
