The University’s RASCAL system is a critically important portal for many research and administration needs. In addition to hosting training modules and worksheets for creating grant proposals, RASCAL is also used to create and submit IACUC and IRB protocols, along with their associated Hazardous Materials Appendices. These Appendices are used by EH&S to evaluate safety and compliance aspects of the research protocol. The Appendix submission process, as well as the process of updating or modifying an existing Appendix, can sometimes be a source of frustration however, particularly for those who do not regularly use the RASCAL system.
To facilitate this particular operation, EH&S, in conjunction with RASCAL’s administrative technical support staff, has developed a step-by-step worksheet that guides users through this process from start to finish.
