Why does my research account take so long to set-up?

  • The administration processes involved in the establishment of a research record and account set-up involve many steps and delays can occur for a variety of reasons, for example:

    • HRS has no record of the award, agreement or contract;
    • The agreement or contract is in the process of being reviewed, negotiated, or signed;
    • Certifications (human ethics, biohazards, animal, and radioisotopes) are outstanding and/or HRS has not been notified that the certification has been approved;
    • The award start date is in the future.

    For clarification on a specific situation please contact an Administration and Support Unit Senior Advisor.
