As you may know, the Office of Research Integrity Assurance (ORIA) is no longer under the GTRC/GTARC organization, but is now included in the EVPR office. If you are sending email to associates in ORIA, and you are using the GTRI/GTRC mail system, you may find that your messages are not delivered. This is likely due to your mail client cache. If you experience bounced messages when sending to ORIA emails, please clear your auto-complete cache in your local Outlook client (e.g. https://its.unl.edu/emailhome/clear-e-mail-cache). After clearing your cache - resend the message. If you still receive a bounce back or if you do not hear back from ORIA, please contact us via phone or Teams to make sure your message was received.
Anyone with a concern about any aspect of research involving human subjects at Georgia Tech or who would like to report a violation of any policies and procedures may contact the Institutional Official/Vice President for Research (VPR), the IRB Chair, any IRB member, a Research Associate, or the Director or Associate Director of the Program of Human Research Protections. Concerns may also be emailed to the IRB office. Reports made to the Office of Research Integrity Assurance will be delivered to the IRB Chair and the Institutional Official/VPR for further action.
No adverse action will be taken against anyone making a good-faith report. No Georgia Tech employee, committee member, student, or other person shall be discriminated against or be subject to any reprisal for reporting, in good faith, concerns or violations of regulations or standards under Title 45 Code of Federal Regulations Part 46 or Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations, Parts 50, 56, 312 or 812.
Persons with no formal relationship with the Georgia Institute of Technology are also encouraged to register their concerns, also without fear of reprisal or future discrimination.
