IRBs and data contracts or licenses are two intertwined requirements that researchers need to fulfill to get access to restricted data. Data Services can help researchers with almost any issue associated with this process.
A restricted access agreement almost always is a formal contract, which requires signoff by the Division of Research Administration (DRDA)
. Most restricted data applications require IRB approval before release of the restricted data to the researcher. Likewise, university officials will not sign off on a restricted data request without IRB approval.
Data providers can and do have different requirements, which affects the choices one needs to make in filling out an IRB. We understand these distinctions and can clarify them for you.
