Because only the person who submits the RNI can respond to any requests for clarification and make edits to the RNI submission, the PAVE report should be submitted by a study team member who is able to respond to any further questions about the report, its findings, and any action plan. The PI, any PI proxies, the primary contact, and study team members of the study are given read-only access to the RNI submission. The PI, any PI proxies, and primary contact receive the same e-mail notifications as the RNI submitter throughout the workflow.
If the PAVE report will result in changes to the study, a study modification should also be submitted and associated with the RNI.
