IRBManager Release Date & Training

August 22, 2017

As previously announced, the Office of Research Compliance and Integrity (ORCI) is transitioning to a new electronic management system. IRBManager will be released university-wide on September 25, 2017. This new system will serve as the “front door” for the submission, tracking, and retention of research compliance documents. This will initially include Human Research Review Committee (HRRC) and Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) application forms, as well as the GVSU Investigator Conflict of Interest (COI) Disclosure and Certification Form. Other forms may be added at a later date.

A link to access IRBManager will be made available on the ORCI webpage beginning on September 25th. IRBNet will no longer be functional as of September 25th, and active protocols currently housed in IRBNet will be transferred to IRBManager by the ORCI.

The ORCI will host a number of training sessions (listed below) to help users become familiar with IRBManager. Please visit Sprout to register for a session if interested. Additional informational documents and tutorials will be made available on our website prior to the release date. Departmental training is also available upon request (contact


Training Sessions

Training should only last about 20-25 minutes, but sessions are scheduled for an hour to allow time for questions/individual assistance.
