Annual Reviews: Annuals are reviewed by the Designated Member Review (DMR) process. A reminder email and the Annual Review form are sent to the PI one month prior to the annual review date.
Annual Reviews with Revisions: If an annual review form is submitted along with revisions (i.e., with the modified AUP and Protocol Revision Request form), the review processes for annuals and revisions are separated (i.e., separate approval letters if both are approved). The annual review will be processed as above and the revision will be processed as below.
Revisions: For revisions, the type of review process and the timeframe for the review is dependent on the nature (major versus minor) of the revision. Principal Investigators can submit revisions at any time. On alternating Mondays, revision submissions are triaged as eligible for DMR or FCR (the criteria for this decision can be found in the Policy and Procedures on Protocol Review). Please note that, in order to be considered for the preliminary review, revised AUPs must be electronically sent in with the concurrent Revision Request form to OACU by 8am on the submission deadline dates listed below. The DMR process can take a minimum of two (2) weeks; however, this timeframe is completely dependent on the response time of the reviewers and PIs. Revisions going to the full committee will be reviewed in approximately six (6) weeks if the revisions are submitted by the FCR submission deadlines listed above. If a revision is submitted after the submission deadline date, the revision will go to the next meeting.
