PCS Wizard Completion Campaign

Thanks to your effort and commitment, we have reached a 70.9% completion rate for Project Cover Sheets (PCS). The PCS completion rate began at 32% back in October 2021 and in less than a year, more than 7,000 cover sheets have been completed! Please continue to work with investigators at your site to ensure wizards are completed for all new study submissions and all active projects that have transitioned to IRBNet.

As of September 8, 2022, we have completed 13,264 Project Cover Sheets, accounting for 70.9% of the 18,708 active projects.

Please continue to complete the Project Cover Sheets for ALL active projects in IRBNet. If you have questions regarding Project Cover Sheets, reference the VAIRRS FAQs or contact
