An announcement was issued in early July about the implementation of a new E-IRB version “Version 4” (V4) tentatively scheduled for August 3rd. V4 encompasses improvements to the IRB application’s readability by reducing redundancies, re-organizing some of the sections, and improving the navigation for some of the menu options and the visuals on section pages.
The upgrade to V4 has been rescheduled for August 18th to ensure appropriate implementation. The update will involve approximately three hours of offline time for the conversion and testing starting at noon on the 18th, so please adjust your schedule accordingly to accommodate the interruption in access to E-IRB. As the implementation date approaches, a system message will appear on your E-IRB Dashboard as a reminder.
For a detailed recap on what V4 entails, you may wish to review the July 8, 2022 Online Edge newsletter.
As always, we appreciate your patience as we work to get the planned improvements underway!
