IRB Application Instructions - Resources

Help Information

A. Identification of Funding Source(s)

  • If the project is sponsored by external sources (e.g. U.S. Federal Government, Industry, etc.) or internal funds (e.g. departmental grant), select yes and complete sub-questions 1 and 2; submit a copy of the draft or executed contract, the grant proposal, etc.

  • For sub-question 1, identify the source and provide the OSP/CGA App Number – i.e. the number generated by the etransmittal (app#)

  • For sub-question 2, select yes if the funding is pending (e.g. not yet awarded, contract not executed) and describe the current status (e.g. submitted to granting agency, just-in-time)

  • If the project is funded, also include a copy of the funding material to the IRB with application submission

B. Resources
