The electronic Research Administration (eRA) project will replace a host of aging systems and manual processes with a single, cloud-based solution for managing Conflicts of Interest (COI), human subjects research (IRB),  animal subjects research (IACUC), and live animal care (ARC).

Status Summary: 

We have kicked off work on the three remaining modules (IACUC, IRB, ARC).  We experienced a 7 week delay to the start of the IACUC build and configure phase due to the abrupt departure of external (vendor) resources.  We have been assigned two new resources and will attempt to compress our schedule to reclaim some of the 7 weeks we lost.  We are closely monitoring staffing requirements to ensure the modules can be delivered on time.  On the IACUC module we have an initial build of the Initial Application form in iRIS and we are going through revisions; We are also gathering data required for data migration and building system lists.  IRB and ARC are in the design and analysis phase.  Project is 38% complete.

Recently Completed: 

IRB: Form design, notification design
IACUC: Design and analysis documentation, Draft build of ACUP form in iRIS 
ARC: Process walkthrough


What's Next: 

IACUC: Ancillary study form development
ARC: Form analysis & design
IRB: More design and analysis (meetings, agendas, document retention, training, test planning)
