The Office of Regulatory Affairs (ORA) and University Information Services (UIS) have initiated a project to implement Click Commerce IRB software to streamline Georgetown University’s Institutional Review Board (IRB) activities.

The Click Commerce IRB Software entitled eRICprovides a paperless, electronic method for the submission, tracking, and review of information related to IRB activities. The IRB Software will provide a single-source collaboration platform supported by administrative capabilities that will improve the efficiencies of Georgetown University Institutional Review Board and administrative office activities, as well as those of the Georgetown University research community.
