Institutional Review Board (IRB) Policy

campusTo ensure that the USI Office of Planning, Research, and Assessment is in compliance with Institutional Review Board (IRB) regulations, we are requiring all survey clients (internal and external) to contact the Office of Sponsored Research to verify what type of IRB review, if any, is needed prior to fielding any type of survey.

The client is responsible for forwarding the Office of Sponsored Projects and Research Administration's (OSPRA) response as to whether or not IRB review is necessary to our office.  A response by email is acceptable.

If you have questions regarding IRB, contact

If IRB review is required, the paper work required for such review will be the responsibility of the client. Final documentation that IRB approval has been received must be forwarded to the Office of Planning, Research, & Assessment prior to the survey field start date.
