News & Announcements

New CPHS Fee Schedule Effective July 1, 2011

The Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects (CPHS) will no longer bill federally funded studies, including sub awards, for IRB reviews. The current fees of $2,000 for an initial full committee review and $750 for initial expedited review will continue to be charged on externally funded, non‐federal studies when allowed by proposal guidelines. We revisit these fees and the fee structure on an ongoing basis. The requirements for CPHS review are unaltered by this change in the fee structure. For information about these requirements please consult the CPHS office at 603‐646‐6482 or

New CPHS Renewal and Revision Forms

The CPHS office has created a new version of the Renewal or Termination Review Form and updated the Revision or Addition Review Form. Please read each question on these forms carefully in order to supply the appropriate answers.

The major changes to the Renewal Form are:
• The new form does not specify Full Committee or Expedited review studies – it is designed to be used for both.
• In the Study Status section, there are more options and they are more specific, in order to gather the exact status of many different kinds of studies.
• The signature section:
       1] The requirement for the Dept. Chairperson’s signature has been removed.
       2] No paper copy signed by the PI is necessary if the form is sent from his or her email address.
       3] The VA has special instructions for its investigators.

Please direct any questions or comments on these new forms to CPHS.Tasks@Dartmouth.EDU
