Changes to IRB Fees, Billing Practices, and Collections Effective April 1, 2022
Fees apply if your study is funded by a private or industry sponsor. Fees do not
apply when your study is funded by a government agency, non-profit, personally
funded, or sponsored by WVU.
Please see the revised fee schedule.
In the event invoices are not paid by the Sponsor within 60 days, the amount of the unpaid balance will be assessed against a department, college, school, or unit account to reimburse WVU OHRP. Now is an excellent time to review protocols submitted by investigators in your unit and remove inactive studies from WVU+kc.
Attached is a letter to the research community from Dr. Fred King detailing these changes as well as a letter you may provide Sponsors for documentation regarding WVU’s new billing and payment requirements.
If after reading the attached you have further questions, please contact the Office of Human Research Protections at (304) 293-7073.
