"Draft" NIH Policy on the Use of a Single IRB for Multi-Site Research 
NIH is seeking public comments by January 29, 2015 on this draft policy to promote the use of a single IRB of record for domestic sites of multi-site studies funded by the NIH.  If this policy is issued the goal is to enhance and streamline the IRB review process and reduce inefficiencies so that research can proceed effeciently without compromising ethical principles and protections.

IRBManager has been operational now for several months and we want to share some helpful tips that we thought you still might find useful!
Tip #1- How to retreive a copy of your request form you submitted: From the SSP (Study Summary Page), click on the Event you would like to access, from the Event page click on the xForm (located under Actions on left side of the screen - you will see a (1) next to the link), with the form open you can request to copy the form by selecting "PDF" at the bottom of the form.

Tip #2- Request others to assist with the completion/submission of a new form: When in an open xForm, select "Collaborators" on the top of the page, enter the requested information of the person you wish to collaborate, select the type of permission you want them to have. The person you requested will receive an invitation via email with a direct link to the form.


Tip #3 - Find your approval documents in a sub-folder located in the 'Att' column and also within the Event in 'Attachments'.


Tip #4 - "Jump" pages on an xForm to allow you to navigate to any page without yet having to complete the entire page (i.e. temporarily skip required questions).


Tip #5 - Identify & add multiple contacts to a study on the New Study Submission Forms. Additionally, identify which contacts wish to receive all or none of the automatic e-mail notifications.


Tip #6 - Keep your profile up to date by ensuring your mailing address, phone number, etc. is current in your Settings Tab.
