IRBIS will be off-line Friday, March 23rd

One of UNCG’s SeRA Research applications will be off-line during normal business hours Friday, March 23rd, due to a system upgrade. The Institutional Review Board Information System (IRBIS) is critical to any and all research projects involving human participants.  

Important announcement for IRBIS users:

Your instances will be upgraded to on March, 23rd.  To perform this upgrade, THE SYSTEM WILL BE TAKEN OFFLINE AND UNAVAILABLE MOST OF THE DAY on Friday, March 23rd. The upgrade will have to take place during business hours due to the nature of the upgrade and the staff required to ensure its success.

Most of this upgrade impacts coding behind the scenes for GA and will not impact the user interface. This upgrade is taking place to better position us for our upgrading and version control in the future using Tortoise SVN – this will be especially important if there are any swift upgrades required when or if the Common Rule is put into effect. When the upgrade is complete, you will receive an email (as you have in the past) detailing what changes have taken place.
