Locked vs. Unlocked Packages

Once a study is submitted to a committee office, it is LOCKED in that office.

VERY IMPORTANT: You can continue to obtain investigator signatures on a locked package. Under no circumstances should you create a new package just for the purpose of obtaining signatures.

Packages can only be unlocked by ORC Staff. This can be done if you let us know that you’ve made an error in something that you just submitted, or if we let you know that we see something that is missing or needs to be fixed before review.
