WORKSHEET: Engagement


This worksheet is used for assistance in determining whether an organization is engaged in a research project. It does not need to be completed and retained, unless specifically requested by HSD or the IRB. Researchers and IRB staff may complete it and use it at their discretion to:

  1. Accompany a written determination to investigators or other organizations about engagement; or
  2. Provide documentation in the IRB file about an engagement scenario that may not be immediately obvious to future reviewers.
