BRAAN2 DAILY SHUT DOWN 11:45AM - 12:15PM
Please plan to be out of the system from 11:45 AM - 12:15 PM on weekdays. If anyone is still in the system during that time frame, they have a good chance of losing their work. During this time period there will be maintenance on the system that we hope will help speed up BRAAN2 functions in the afternoons. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience.

DO NOT USE HIPAA OR CONSENT FORM BUILDERS
Use of the HIPAA and Consent Form Builders has been discontinued. Please use the templates located on the HSPPO Website to create your documents. Then you should attach your HIPAA documents and consent forms to the MISC. ATTACHMENTS page of the IRB PROTOCOL, under the section - Approval Attachments. Before submitting your protocol or continuation review, please delete any HIPAA or Consent form builders that currently exist. If all HIPAA and Consent form builders are not deleted, the study cannot be processed by the IRB and will be returned to you.
BRAAN2 does not recognize CHARTS, TABLES, IMAGES, or SYMBOLS (i.e., <, >, ß, etc.)
If you use any of these items in your submission the IRB will not be able to view it and it will be sent back to you to be corrected.
Please Note: Once you update your training or COI, it will take 24 hours for the Office of Research Integrity to update the data which feeds BRAAN2. To expedite this process or to ask questions, please contact the Office of Research Integrity at ORIUOFL@louisville.edu or 502-852-2454.
COI CHECKOFF (this is not the same as Expired COI listed above)
Use of the new HIPAA Forms is mandatory as of April 1, 2009. New studies submitted with the old format will be returned.
