    • to add new grant title with no change in biohazardous materials or procedures

    • to add new material or procedures
  • Biohazard Team Member Attestation forms (to be filled out upon a request from the Biosafety Officer)
    • Required for all new authorized users
    • Required after new application or re-application is approved by the Biohazard Committee

All of these forms will be available via a "TRAQ Researcher Portal" through Single Sign-On . TRAQ will support regulatory compliance by integrating all project data in this single dashboard.
