The NIH sIRB policy is effective for NIH grant applications with due dates on or after January 25, 2018. For contracts, the policy applies to all solicitations issued on or after January 25, 2018. At this time, the University of Minnesota is not agreeing to serve as the sIRB, though this may change in the future. The HRPP office will work with you to identify which of the participating sites may be an option or to facilitate outsourcing to the U of M’s selected independent IRB, Chesapeake IRB.
