The Institutional Review Board

Fee Schedule

Payment of IRB fees is regarded as a contractual responsibility of the sponsor. The fees are assessments of actual cost associated with protocol review by the IRB and are charged for services rendered. Because the IRB commits its full resources to each review, the fees are due and payable in full by the sponsor upon receipt of the invoice, even if the IRB does not approve the study, subjects are never enrolled, or the study is terminated before objectives are reached. Approval will not be released until payment of IRB invoice is received.
