What is the deadline for protocol submission?The submission deadline for protocols is the 21st of the month (or next business day if on a weekend or holiday) for review in the next month's review cycle. For example a protocol submitted on September 21 will be reviewed in the October review cycle.
How can I ensure my submission is accepted?There are a few checks you can perform before you submit your protocol to prevent delays.
If I receive a competing continuation of my grant do I need to submit a new AUR form?Yes, competing continuations require an AUR form and full review. Since the Office of Sponsored Projects (OSP) assigns a new link number and Grants Accounting will assign a new account number(s), the competing continuation is considered a separate grant and must be reviewed as such for tracking purposes. The IACUC is required to perform a grant-to-protocol comparison and review all procedures related to this grant segment.
