Question 1: Will review by the IRB of this application be required?
Question 2: If we have to have IRB approval of the grant as it is written many of us won't have it written in time to have it through our IRBs before submission date, and you know how long it takes to get some things through local IRBs. How will that work for us?
Question 3: Is use of the NCI-central IRB required under NCORP? Can quick-turnaround sites use local IRB instead? Is there a waiver process?
Question 4: We are adding two small components. One has a FWA, and uses WIRB, the other does not have FWA. Both agree to use CIRB, but have not applied yet. Their need for a CIRB agreement etc. is dependent on the NCORP award- is it acceptable to note the FWA and CIRB applications will be done after the grant is submitted, or should we have the FWA number to go in the grant?
