This Notice corrects Section II.B.1. "Financial Benefit" in Guide Notice NOT-OD-13-010.  The second paragraph of that section is corrected to read:

Through this current policy, regardless of the role he/she plays in the application and regardless of the complexity of the application:

  • if a reviewer could receive, or the reviewer's close relative could receive, a direct financial benefit of any amount from an application; and the conflict is known to the reviewer and/or the SRO managing the review,

the reviewer is in conflict with the review and is "out of the SRG" or "may not serve", unless a waiver is granted by the DDER in advance of the meeting.

Thus, the second bullet in that paragraph has been deleted.
