The IRB electronic protocol system is changing to facilitate research and comply with new regulations. The shift out of ePAS and into RAP (Research Administrative Portal) will occur in January of 2019. All research submissions must be in an approved state for IT to move them over into the new system. To facilitate the migration of the data and prevent delays, researchers are strongly encouraged to send any new research submissions (i.e., new studies, amendments, continuing reviews, reportable events) by December 7, 2018. Submissions that are not in an approved state at the time of migration must be re-entered and submitted in the new system.
