The Reliance Point of Contact (POC) reviews requests for reliance involving their institution and determines whether their organization will be the Reviewing IRB or Relying Institution, as applicable. For requests where the Principal Investigator is from their institution, the Reliance POC will first determine whether the request is eligible for reliance. A Reliance POC may designate one or more Reliance POC Backups who may assist with the above processes.
In addition, the Reliance POC is responsible for granting access to users from their institution, and configuring various settings for their institution, such as the display contact information for the institution, and whether a group email should be cc'd on all system notifications. See Online Reliance System: Roles and Contact Information for further details.
To designate a Reliance POC Backup or grant access to investigators or others who wish to submit a request, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the first and last name, and institution email address of each individual.
