We are pleased to announce that all configuration has been completed to meet the requirements of the live kickoff of Kuali Protocols for IRB, our cloud-based protocol management and administration tool.
After several positive and successful tests, KUALI Protocols for IRB has an official “Go Live” date planned for October 19, 2020,
What this means for you
Effective October 19, 2020, paper forms and requests will now be a thing of the past. From the “Go Live” date moving forward, Kuali IRB will become part of the one stop shop for all things Compliance. However, until that time, please continue to use protocol forms available on the ORPC Forms and Documents page. Our office will ensure that protocol submissions and updates are incorporated into a Kuali protocol record.
For our currently approved IRB protocol users, we remind you to check your email for the “Legacy Protocol Upload” message asking that you review the uploaded current protocol and approve that version. This Kuali protocol version will be used for submitting annual renewals pre-2018 Common Rule Revisions (if applicable) and for amendments and closures. If you haven’t approved these yet, please do ASAP. The deadline for completing this action is October 1, 2020 at 5:00 pm.

Kuali IRB Website
The IRB website will be changing. After October 19, 2020, we will no longer offer forms for protocol submission actions but will instead provide you the link to access your Kuali Protocols.
