Kuali Research Protocols (KRP) Transition: Updated IRB Fees


Version August 30, 2021


The IRB fee schedule has been simplified.

image002-3.pngEffective September 1, 2021, NEW clinical research protocols partially or fully supported by industry sponsors will be charged a ONE-TIME fee at the time of UCI or sIRB[1] approval. 

The ONE-TIME fee will be $1500.

image003-3.pngThere will be no fee for amendments or renewals.

image003-3.pngThere will be no fee for unanticipated problems, new information or closing reports.

image003-3.pngCurrently approved protocols will no longer be charged.

image003-3.pngDe-Novo review will go away; KRP allows for Researchers to maintain their protocols using up to date templates.

This fee will adjust annually to align with HRP expenses.  The rate will increase or decrease based on actual expenditures for the current fiscal year, and projected expenses for the following fiscal year.

For budgeting purposes, Researchers should assume that the future fee will be 3% higher than the current rate.
