Reliance Determination Form

When multiple institutions are engaged in human subjects research, it is important that the HSP understands the roles and responsibilities of each site to provide administrative support to Investigators and simplify the IRB reliance submission process. The purpose of the IRB Reliance Determination Form is to determine if the Single IRB (sIRB) process should be implemented for a multi-site research study. This form should be completed by the UTD PI or appropriate study personnel prior to submission via Cayuse.

Please note: It is recommended that an individual from the study team (UTD or non-UTD personnel) contact the non-UTD institution(s) to confirm if they are willing to enter into a reliance agreement for this research. All institutions must agree to participate to proceed with the Single IRB review / approval process.
