Effective May 6, 2009, the requirement for administrative ARC review of program projects and training grants has been removed. Research activities involving the use of vertebrate animals funded by program projects and training grants will of course continue to undergo separate ARC review and approval.

OPRS/ARC is in the process of issuing written notification to all investigators whose projects previously received administrative approval for program projects and training grants, that this administrative approval is no longer required and that the approval is now closed. If you have any questions about the grants and contracts aspect of this change in procedure, please contact Associate Vice Chancellor for Research, Marcia L. Smith, at (310) 206-8459 or
