The Funding Verification and Activation Form (FVAF) will be required for all competing projects and/or new funding regardless of human subjects and/or live vertebrate animal status prior to submission of Just-In-Time (JIT) or award activation, depending on the project type and sponsor requirements. Click here for more details.
Please submit the IRO Confirmation of Limited Activity Form for requesting the release of funds prior to IRB and/or IACUC review. The activities may not involve the use of human subjects or live vertebrate animals. Only activities that are clearly severable and independent from activities that involve human subjects or live vertebrate animals may be conducted under the award until the project has received approvals.
You do not need to submit a Modification/Revision Request Form if your funding source receives a no-cost-extension or if you need to update the support dates for your funding source. Simply email the IRO.
In some cases, the IRB may allow investigators to submit incomplete study materials when a funding agency specifically requests an IRB opinion prior to releasing funds. The IRB conducts this type of review to satisfy the funding agency's requirement and meet the needs of Hutch investigators.
NOTE: This type of review is not an "approval." No activity that involves human subjects may commence until the IRB has formally reviewed and approved the research.
It is recommended that a complete set of documents submitted to the IRB be kept for the investigator's records. Please submit documents in following order:
NOTE: All documents must be single-sided. Do not use staples.
NOTE for Fred Hutch Clinical Research Division and University of Washington Consortium investigators: This type of review is only the opinion of the IRB based on draft application materials. If requesting an opinion prior to IRB review, submit documents directly to the IRO. Materials needed for the opinion do not need to go to Clinical Research Support.
