New application, submission process for visiting scholars and non-immigrant employees

Submitted by Erin Pennington

The University Research Compliance Office is moving to an online software solution called IRBManager for processing the Export Controls Compliance Review, or ECCR, for visiting scholars and non-immigrant employees. IRBManager is a configurable software system that has allowed K-State’s forms and workflow to be incorporated with virtually no change.

The new system will be easy to use and will make the review process more efficient. Beginning Monday, Feb. 14, the ECCR process will be handled online by IRBManager. 

Users will enter information into IRBManager rather than using a fillable PDF. There will be a 30-day grace period for submitting forms using the old PDF file via email to comply@k-state.edu.This grace period will end on March 13. 

IRBManager can be accessed from the University Research Compliance Office website. A detailed guide to walk users through the features of the application is included on the International Visitors and Non-Immigrant Employees webpage. Training sessions are scheduled at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Feb. 8, and at 2 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10, via Zoom. Please sign up for a training session. For any questions, please email exportcontrols@k-state.edu.
