VAIRRS Wizard Completion Campaign

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)

IRB Information Sheet Wizard Completion Campaign

Have you checked your site's IRB Information Sheet wizard completion rate recently? As of now, we have reached a 71% completion rate. Please 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 November 7, 2023, the active Project Cover Sheets completion rate has reached 86% with 17,333 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. With your support, we look forward to meeting our 90% completion rate goal in 2023.

Please continue to complete the Project Cover Sheets for ALL active projects in IRBNet. If you have questions regarding Project Cover Sheets, reference the VAIRRS FAQs or contact
