Respond to Committee Concerns, Post-Review

Respond to Committee Concerns, Post-Review

You respond to committee concerns by submitting the requested information in a new package for your project.  The following steps will help ensure a smooth submission.

1. Create a New Package for an Existing Project in IRBNet

  • In your ‘My projects’ view, click on the title of the project in question. This will take you to the Project Overview page.
  • Click the Project History button to the left.
  • Click the Create New Package button in the middle of the page (if the button isn’t there, you were not granted that type of access by the PI)
  • Click on the ‘New Document Package’’, which will take you into the Designer where you can work on documents for the new package via a few methods (described in detail below):

A. Revise a previously submitted registration form

  • Refer to the ‘Documents from Previous Packages’ section at the bottom of the Designer view.
  • Click on the pencil icon for the Registration Form. This will open up the Registration Form.
  • Make any necessary changes to previously entered information and save. The document will move to the ’New and Revised Documents in this Package‘ section.

B. Revise a previously submitted document (.doc, .xls, .pdf, etc.)

  • Refer to the ‘Documents from Previous Packages’ section at the bottom of the Designer view.
  • Download the document by clicking on its Document Type or the paper icon.
  • Make necessary changes and save the revised document to your computer.
  • Click on the pencil icon for that document in the Designer.
  • Browse your computer, select your revised document to upload, make necessary changes to Document Type and Description (below), and click the Update button.
  • When you click Update, the revised document will appear in the current document package (‘New and Revised Documents in this Package’) with a revision history (the ‘stack of paper’ icon) that reflects versions from previous packages (see below).

C. Attach a new document to the package

  • Complete applicable forms downloaded from the Library, or create applicable documents on your computer.
  • Use the Add New Document button to upload the document into the current package. The document will not have a revision history (stack of paper icon) at this time as it is new

2. When all documents are uploaded, obtain PI e-signature.

3. Once all signatures are obtained, hit the ‘Submit this Project’ button on the left. Choose the applicable SBU office (IBC, IACUC, SCRO) as the organization. The appropriate Submission Type for this package is ‘Response/Follow-up’.
