The Office of the IRB (OIRB), in collaboration with the Research Technology & Communication (RTC) office, is developing electronic submission forms (eForm) to replace many of the existing, manual Word and PDF forms. An electronic smart form, called the IRB e-Portfolio, will replace the current Human Subjects Protocol (HSP) and twelve other submission documents. The e-Portfolio has been in development and has undergone beta testing,  which began in spring of this year. A campus-wide launch is scheduled for August 28, 2020.  

This user-friendly application process has been streamlined to present users with only the questions relevant to their research.  The new IRB e-Portfolio utilizes branching logic with specific questions to better ascertain the regulatory information necessary to make IRB determinations.
