Part 1: Applying For Membership
This Quickguide explains how to enroll as a Signatory Institution with the CIRB. Enrollment occurs in two parts: Part 1 establishes the institutional framework, and Part 2 establishes local context. Part 1 must be completed before progressing to Part 2.
INSTITUTION SUBMITS ENROLLMENT FORM
The Enrollment Form:
- Provides the CIRB with basic information about the Signatory Institution.
- Identifies the Signatory Institution Primary Contact.
- Identifies the institutional contact(s) who will view, manage, and edit the Roster Maintenance Update System (RUMS).
- RUMS does not apply to the Consortia or CP-CTNet. If you are a Consortia or CP-CTNet site, go to Navigating The CIRB For Consortia Sites And Cancer Prevention Clinical Trial Network (CP-CTNet) Organizations for information on how processes vary for you.
This form must be completed and emailed to CIRB Helpdesk.
CIRB SENDS AUTHORIZATION AGREEMENT TO INSTITUTION
The Authorization Agreement is between the NCI CIRB and Signatory Institution and outlines the division of responsibilities.
The CIRB will send the Authorization Agreement to the Signatory Official identified on the Enrollment Form for electronic signature via DocuSign.
INSTITUTION SUBMITS AUTHORIZATION AGREEMENT
Signatory Official electronically signs the Authorization Agreement, and it is then routed automatically to NCI.
NCI SIGNS AUTHORIZATION AGREEMENT
