Forms and Resources

 

OSPRI utilizes several forms for pre-award and post award grant and contract management as well as for Human and Animal Subject research.  Additional information and resources to help you navigate the process are available. If there are any questions or concerns on what forms to use or how to complete them, please contact OSPRI staff to assist you through the process.

Grants and Contracts

Pre-award

SPIN Plus: OSPRI provides faculty and staff access to a funding search engine.  By completing the SPIN form, you can customize search words specific to programmatic and research interests.  Funding opportunities which match selected terms will be provided either daily or weekly by email.

New Applications: When a possible funding opportunity is identified, employees are asked to complete this form to get this project on the OSPRI workflow.

IDC Waiver: UCM's indirect cost (IDC) rates are 33.5% Modified Total Direct Costs (MTDC) for all federal and federal pass-through grants/contracts and 10% for all other funders, unless otherwise stated in the Request for Proposal (RFP).  In some cases, it may be necessary to request a reduction in indirect costs to better support the project's scope of work.  This form must be completed before an application is submitted to a funding agency.

Contingency Account: In some cases, a contingency account will need to be requested while waiting on a contract.  Contingency accounts must have another FOAPAL backing them, in the case that the contract does not come through.  Only the fund manager for the backing FOAPAL can approve the request.

Post Award

Conflict of Interest: Federal regulations require principal investigators to disclose all financial conflicts of interest which they have.  If at any point during the life of a funded project at new conflict arises, the PI must updated their Conflict of Interest disclosure.

Expense Transfer: If a non-personnel expense was incorrectly charge to a grant/contract account or needs to be transferred to a grant/contract account, then this form needs to be completed.

Labor Distribution: For personnel expense corrections, the labor distribution form will need to be completed.  Labor change requests for fiscal year end need to be submitted by June 30th of each year.

Funding Agencies

Below are links to frequently used funding agencies, grouped by sources of funds.  This is not an all inclusive list.  If you find a potential funding opportunities, please complete the New Project Initiation Form to start your application.

 Human Subjects (IRB)

Getting Started

IRB 101: This PowerPoint presentation will help to guide users through the IRB process.  

IRB Processes: This video will explain the IRB process.

Determination of Research Form Explained: This video will explain the purpose of the DOR how to fill out a DOR form.

Determination of Research (DOR): This form will help to determine if a project will fall under the federal definition of research for human subjects.  At a minimum, all researchers presenting findings outside of the classroom must have completed the DOR form and have received a letter from the IRB stating that they were approved to start your project.  Researchers who already have a protocol approved by IRB for their project do not need to complete the DOR form.

Research Categories: This document will assist in identifying the various research categories.

CITI Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR): The OSPRI provides free CITI Training for UCM faculty, staff, and students.  Instructions have been made available for accessing CITI to complete Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training, which is a requirements for all Human Subjects research.  Training is valid for 3 years. 

Application Forms

Below are the different application forms for Human Subjects research.  Please complete the appropriate form for your research and use the Submission Form to submit protocol applications to the IRB for review.  Please use the IRB application guide to determine which form to complete.

IRB Submission Form: Use this form to attach and submit your IRB application and supporting documents.

Non-Human Subjects: If your research project does not fall under human or animal subjects, but is using existing data, this form needs to be completed for back up documentation of research compliance. 

Exempt: This form is for research that will likely qualify as exempt, such as minimal interaction, low risk to participants, and/or de-identifiable data collection.

Expedited/Full: Researcher with more extensive interactions with participants, higher risk interactions, and collecting identifiable data will need to undergo a full review.

External IRB: If you already have an IRB from another institution, you must complete the Submission Form, select "External Protocol" in the Review Type field, and upload the original application, support items, and the external IRB's approval letter.

Renewals: Renewing a protocol extends the end date of the research project.  Use the Submission Form to renew your protocol by selecting "Renewal" in the Review Type field and upload the original application form.

Amendments: To amend an active protocol, use the Submission Form and select Amendments in the Review Type field and provide a description of the proposed changes in the Comments box. 

Revisions: To revise an active protocol, use the Submission form and select Revisions in the Review Type field and provide a description of the revisions in the Comments box in addition to uploading any additional or corrected documents.

Protocol Closeout Form: Use this form after all research is complete and your are ready to close your protocol.
