Post Approval Monitoring (PAM)

The IACUC Office is now conducting annual protocol reviews through a Post Approval Monitoring (PAM) process. This process captures the same information from the previously used Annual Reports more efficiently and without the administrative burden to the investigator. The IACUC Administrator will contact the investigator one month prior to project approval anniversary date to schedule a PAM Meeting. After the meeting, the IACUC Administrator will send the PAM completion report to the investigator for their records and upload a copy into their IRBNet project package. Just like the annual reports, the PAM completion reports are eligible for administrative approval/acknowledgment if there are no significant changes to the protocol. The PAM reports will be reviewed at the IACUC meetings for a follow-up review and acknowledgment.
