From:  Keisha Peterson, HRPP Coordinator

Dear Baruch College Researchers:

This is to remind you that we will be transitioning to a new HRPP/IRB submission software program, Ideate, in early February 2015.  Please be aware of the following submission deadlines to ensure a smooth transition:

  • (November 26, 2014 – Baruch HRPP Office Deadline for submitting Full Board applications to CUNY UI IRB Office)
  • December 17, 2014 – Submission Deadline for Exempt/Expedited applications
  • January 12, 2015 – Processing Deadline for Baruch HRPP Office
  • January 19 – 30, 2015 – Processing Freeze (no submissions will be processed)

Please submit all anticipated amendments and continuing reviews well in advance of the submission deadlines. No exempt or expedited submissions will be accepted after December 17th. The Baruch HRPP Office will have until January 12th to process existing IRBNet submissions. There will be a processing freeze beginning January 19th through 30th while HRPP staff will be transferring protocols into Ideate.

 Data Transfer Information:  CUNY will be transferring protocol and submission level data into Ideate for all active non-exempt human subject research protocols. This means that CUNY will not transfer closed projects/non-active projects and active exempt protocols/submission data into Ideate. Although CUNY will have backup data, please be sure to have a copy of all protocol-related materials available to you in your research records in order to avoid any inadvertent mistakes or data loss.  Investigators should retain copies of their research materials (IRB Applications, consent documents, etc.) as research records must be maintained for three years after all research activities have concluded.

 CUNY will provide Baruch College with training on using the new system in three forms: Webinars (prior to rollout), One-on-one Sessions (after rollout), and “Help Documents by Topic,” which will be available within IDEATE. We will send out information about training as it becomes available.  

For more details regarding the IDEATE implementation, please see the “IDEATE” entry in the Faculty Handbook:

For all updates and announcements regarding the IDEATE implementation, please refer to the CUNY Human Research Protection Program website at:

Please send inquiries regarding the IDEATE roll out to

The Baruch HRPP Office will send updates regarding the final IDEATE implementation and training dates when announced by the CUNY Office of Research Compliance.
