New Real-time Validations
There are now real time validations for both the Institutional Review Board (IRB) date and the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) date.
  • The IRB Approval Date has a range of the current date going back one year.
  • The IACUC Approval Date has a range of the current date going back three years.
Should a date be entered outside that range, an error message will be displayed when the JIT is saved (see Figure 2).

New Save Confirmation
When the JIT is completed and the principal investigator saves the JIT, the system displays a confirmation message that reminds them that only a user with the signing official (SO) role may submit the report to the awarding agency (see Figure 3).
