UW-Madison Federalwide Assurance (FWA)
Expiration Date: October 12, 2021
Every institution that engages in federally sponsored human participants research must provide the government with a written assurance (known as the "Federalwide Assurance") that its investigators will comply with the Terms of the Federalwide Assurance for the Protection of Human Subjects. Investigators at the William S. Middleton Veterans Administration (VA) Hospital are covered by the UW-Madison FWA through an IRB Authorization Agreement and a Memorandum of Understanding between UW-Madison and the Middleton VA Hospital.
