IRB and Contract Processing Fees

I. Contract Processing Fee: $500

All Contracts for research must be approved by the Dean after review by the Associate General Counsel. The proposed industry contract should be forwarded to the Clinical Trials Contract Coordinator (electronically with all necessary information as outlined in the Clinical Trial Contracting Guidelines and Checklist). The contract processing fee is established to ensure that all regulatory requirements are met for study contracts and will be charged to each study. Each clinical trial should include a contract processing fee in the budget submission to the industry sponsor. Investigatorinitiated studies do not include a contract processing fee.

II. Institutional Review Board: The Springfield Committee for Research Involving Human Subjects (SCRIHS) Fees:

Initial Review $2,500

Continuing Review $ 750

Sponsor-required protocol amendments/revisions $ 500

  • Federally-funded, state-supported or non-profit funded clinical research

  • SIU Investigator-initiated research

  • Exempt research
