The Office of the Vice President for Research and the Office of Information Technology are in the process of implementing eProtocol. This new web-based technology will merge the functionality of numerous compliance systems into a single, integrated solution.
eProtocol is a critical step toward establishing a technology infrastructure capable of addressing the research community’s current and emerging needs. The system will be implemented in three releases, allowing for comprehensive technical support during the transition. Researchers and staff will see a number of benefits, including:
Intuitive online interface with dynamic, question-based forms
Streamlined administrative processes
Ability to modify and edit drafts, pause form completion and continue later
Forms that can be completed by someone other than the form signatory
Reporting and email notification features
Release dates are subject to change.
