VAIRRS  Oveview Data

VAIRRS is uniquely positioned to assist VA facilities in the conduct of VA research and can withstand the changing pressures of their research needs, including:

  • Oversight needs of the research programs and institutions
  • Collaborative needs of dually appointed VHA investigators
  • Regulatory changes of the new Common Rule (2019)

Study Team Tracking Wizard Completion Campaign

As we kick off spring, the Project Cover Sheet (PCS) and IRB Information Sheet (IIS) wizard completion campaigns are transitioning focus to make progress on the Study Team Tracking (STT) wizard. Currently, only 12% of the active projects have completed an STT, and we are striving for 100%!

IRB Information Sheet Wizard Completion Campaign

As of January 2024, we have a 72% completion rate. Please continue to ensure all human research projects are recorded in IRBNet, including all human research projects under the oversight of an external IRB.

PCS Wizard Completion Campaign

As of January 2024, the active Project Cover Sheets (PCS) completion rate stands at 88% with 16,117 completed wizards. We thank everyone for their dedication to this effort.

Completed PCS wizards are the foundation of the VAIRRS database, which serve as a critical information source for ORD and VHA leadership. Please continue to ensure all new and active projects conducted at your facility have completed a PCS wizard.
