Navigating the CIRB as a Consortia Site


The CIRB systems are integrated with NCI’s Cancer Therapy Evaluation Program (CTEP) Identity and Access Management (IAM) system for registering Principal Investigator’s (PIs) and research team members; and, the Cancer Trials Support Unit (CTSU) for posting study documents. However, since the Consortia does not use these systems, procedures have been developed to accommodate their needs. 


  • Always let the CIRB Helpdesk team know you are calling with a Consortia question as some of the answers may vary.


Consortia members should contact the CIRB Helpdesk to request IRBManager access. Once IRBManager has been accessed, the Worksheet submission process is the same for all users.


The NCI Division of Cancer Prevention (DCP) Phase 0/I/II Cancer Prevention Clinical Trials Program (Consortia) studies and their related documents are distributed to the Participating Organizations by the Consortia Lead Organization (CLO). Therefore, all requests for the CIRB approval letters, and associated protocols and consent forms should be directed to the CLO. DCP Consortia studies are not posted on the Clinical Trials Support Unit (CTSU) website.
