When researchers work within an efficient, effective and supportive compliance program your institution wins with happy researchers, full regulatory compliance, and rapid award-to-payment for grants.
How long does it take to review a protocol?
We start review of the protocol by the next business day. If all is in order, we issue the determination. If revisions are required, then the time will depend upon the PI. We review revisions submitted by the PI by the next business day.
Who actually reviews our exempt protocols?
We have a staff of seasoned IRB professionals who provide this service. They are current and former IRB administrators and support staff with a broad range of experience in reviewer protocols, from basic social science to complex clinical trials.
The reviewer assigned to any given protocol is named on the protocol and you or the PI may contact the reviewer when you have questions. If you like, you can even be copied on all communications.
Can Mentor send emails through our email system (so they don’t get marked as spam)?
Yes, Mentor can be setup to send all email notifications through your email system, or Mentor can send out emails from our own email server.
Does Mentor EVS retain copies of the protocols it reviews?
Yes, all protocols submitted to your instance of the Mentor system for exemption verification are stored in Mentor for the duration of our contract with you.
What are the costs of the Mentor EVS system?
There are no charges to set your Mentor EVS instance up. It will be branded with your institution’s logo. If you wish to integrate Mentor EVS with your institution’s single sign-on system (and create user accounts automatically on first login), there is a $1500 setup fee.
