Budget Questions and Answers

Do I need to submit a Budget Workbook before I submit my study to the IRB?

If your study has JDH, UMG and/or dental medicine charges you must submit a Budget Workbook to the OCTR before you can submit to the IRB. The process is as follows: Complete a Preliminary Budget Workbook Packet. Meet with staff in OCTR to review.

Does my budget need to be complete before I can submit my study to the IRB?

No, as long as you have submitted your completed Preliminary Budget Workbook Packet to OCTR, met to discuss your budget, and OCTR is in negotiations with the sponsor or funding agency, you can then submit your proposal to the IRB. OCTR will provide the appropriate letter upon request.
