Can I use the SMART IRB online reliance system for multi-site research at Ohio State?

Yes, the SMART IRB online reliance system may be used to request, track, and document reliance arrangements when Ohio State is participating in, or leading a multi-site research study, and the national SMART IRB agreement is being used between the relying and reviewing IRBs.  Please note: only SMART IRB participating institutions can use the SMART IRB agreement and online reliance platform.
