eRAM: V2 Make Application Changes


During the review process, reviewers add questions to an application in order to request clarification on or additional information about the protocol. These questions are routed through the ACU Office Research Compliance Associate (RCA) where they are reviewed, summarized and then sent to the Principal Investigator (PI). The PI must make the appropriate changes and resubmit the application.

  • A complete list of reviewer questions / requested changes can be found on the Reviewer Questions tab in the protocol workspace.
  • If you choose to work from the Reviewer Questions tab, click the application page link on the first reviewer question and make the appropriate changes to the application. Click Save, and then click Exit.
  • Repeat these steps for all listed reviewer questions, and then complete steps 10–11 to resubmit the application.

Alternatively, complete the following steps to address reviewer questions and resubmit the application.
