Read/write personnel can begin and submit a grant/personnel change. Go to the protocol workspace for the protocol you wish to change. The protocol must be registered (approved) before you can begin a grant/personnel change. On the left hand side of the page you will see a blue button that says Create Grant/Personnel Change:
Click on the button to begin the grant/personnel change. The following page will be displayed:
To begin the grant/personnel process, click “finish.” The system will then begin to make a copy of your protocol. This may take several minutes depending on the system traffic. When it is finished, the grant/personnel change workspace will open:
The grant/personnel change will be given a temporary designation of “GP” in the protocol number (i.e. B00000036-GP001) until it is approved. You may only have one grant/personnel change open at a time for a protocol.
If the grant/personnel change does not open, you can also find it by clicking “My Home” tab. The grant/personnel change will be in your biosafety inbox.
To make changes to the grant and personnel sections, click on “Edit Grant Personnel.”
Please note that if you want to modify other parts of the protocol, you will have to create an amendment/renewal or AM. Grant/personnel changes are submitted the same way a protocol is by clicking the Submit button within the protocol workspace. Once the grant/personnel change is approved it will be saved as the full protocol and will return to its original protocol number (i.e. B00000036). All personnel listed on a biosafety protocol must complete required trainings before the grant/personnel change can be approved.
