In response to the 21st Century Cures Act to reduce administrative burden, two new Guide Notices are available. OLAW provides clarification on grant to protocol congruence review in NOT-OD-22-005 and contract to protocol congruence review in NOT-OD-22-006. These Guide Notices clarify:
- the requirement for congruence review,
- the responsibility for congruence review,
- timing and verification of congruence review by IACUC approval, and
- methods for conducting congruence review.
These guidance documents can also be found on OLAW’s new Grant and Contract to Protocol Congruence Review webpage. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions or comments.
