This will ensure proper sorting, filing, and accountability of study materials. Do not scan all forms together, all forms are to be scanned separately.

**Submit your study to the IRB first for continuing review. Once you have received IRB approval for continuing review, please contact the HRPP office for the VA documents to initiate the VA continuing review process (in accordance with the due date on your last VA R&DC approval memorandum).
**If your study was determined Exempt or Non-Human by the IRB-01, your study is still required to receive continuing review annually through the NF/SGVHS R&D Committee.
