IACUC FAQs


IACUC procedure requires that all proposed research protocols are authorized by a responsible GVSU administrative authority prior to IACUC review and approval. IACUC review will not be initiated until an Authorizing Official (AO) signature has been recorded in IRBManager.

Deans: the AO is the Provost or his/her designee.

Unit heads: the AO is the appointing Dean or the Dean’s designee

Faculty members: the AO is the academic unit head.

Staff members: the AO is the unit head or program supervisor.

For full committee reviews, protocol deadlines are typically two weeks prior to the IACUC meeting. Please visit our Meeting Schedule for exact dates.

For projects that do not rise to the level of a full committee review, the IACUC reviews submissions on a rolling basis. If you do not anticipate a full board review you do not need to submit your protocol according to the IACUC meeting schedule.

* Please note  the IACUC observes all university holidays, and does not review submissions during exam week or between academic terms.

Packages  are best described as different submissions within a  project . For example, for a single project may have a new project submission package, a revisions package, a continuing review package, and a closure package.

Packages are easily distinguished in IRBManager by IRBManager ID numbers. IRBManager automatically generates these numbers when you submit a package. The IRBManager ID number format is six digits followed by a hyphen and a seventh digit (e.g. IRBManager ID 123456-1). The first six digits are unique to the project, and the seventh digit designates the package number. A second package would receive IRBManager ID 123456-2, for example.

If you have multiple packages within your project, under My Projects, there is a New and Revised Documents in this Package section that contains the documents in the selected package. Beneath this section is a Documents from Previous Packages area that shows documents from all other packages.
