Electronic IAF Available Effective July 1

A web based version of the Internal Approval Form that will allow routing via workflow and electronic signatures will be available university wide beginning July 1. Training classes are every Tuesday at 3 p.m. and Friday at 9 a.m. beginning June 14 – August 5. The session normally lasts about an hour. These training sessions are open to everyone – no need to register. All training sessions will be held in Room B35 (in the basement) of Young Library.

In order to ensure a successful campus-wide implementation, it is asked that faculty and staff inform their College Grants Officer (Nan Rice for the College of Health Sciences) of any unexpected changes in funding or courses of research, especially during the summer months.

With everyone’s cooperation and support, the new e-IAF process will hopefully reduce the administrative burden on our researchers and staff.
