SOP Research Collaborations or Multiple Performance Sites


Many institutions and individuals may work together on a human subjects research project. The components of the research project may be distributed across more than one institution(i.e., collaboration) or some or all of the research procedures may occur at more than one site (i.e., multiple performance sites). This SOP applies to these situations. It describes the:

  1. Responsibilities of UW researchers for protecting human subjects and for regulatory compliance;
  2. Necessary approvals and permissions that must be in place prior to initiating the research;
  3. Circumstances under which arrangements can be considered so as to reduce duplication or IRB review (i.e., "dual review").
