PCS Wizard Completion Campaign

It has officially been one year since the kickoff of the VAIRRS Wizard Completion campaign! We started the campaign at a 30% completion rate for Project Cover Sheets (PCS), and thanks to your dedicated efforts, we have reached 79%! We ask that you continue to make PCS completion a top priority at your site. Please work with site investigators to ensure wizards are completed for all new submissions and all active projects that have transitioned to IRBNet. Wizards should also be updated whenever there are changes in staffing to remain consistent with study personnel as well as when any changes occur regarding the study's activities. 

As of November 1, 2022, we have completed 14,674 Project Cover Sheets of the 18,518 active projects. 

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
