From: Keisha Peterson, Human Research Protection Program (HRPP) Coordinator
Dear Baruch College Researchers:
We will be transitioning from IRBNet to a new HRPP/IRB submission software program, Ideate, in early February 2015. There are several plans and tentative deadlines that you should be aware of to ensure a smooth transition:
- November 26, 2014 – Submission Deadline for Full Board applications.
- 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 January 19th through 30th as 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.
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 What to Expect” document in the Faculty Handbook: http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/facultyhandbook/documents/IDEATE_WhattoExpectLtr.pdf
For all updates and announcements regarding the IDEATE implementation, please refer to the CUNY Human Research Protection Program website at: http://www.cuny.edu/research/compliance/human-subjects-research-1.html
INQUIRIES: Please send inquiries regarding the IDEATE roll out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Baruch HRPP Office will send updates regarding the final IDEATE implementation and training dates when announced by the CUNY Office of Research Compliance.
