About the Clinical Research Policies and Standard Procedures Documents

Policies and procedures are essential to any clinical research enterprise. In this regard, DAIDS has standardized and harmonized operational procedures across research. Accordingly, all human subjects supported and/or sponsored by NIAID must be compliant with these policies and standard operating procedures in addition to the NIAID Clinical Terms of Award, all National Institutes of Health (NIH) clinical research policies, and 45 CFR 46, subparts B-D. These documents also serve as resources for DAIDS collaborators and staff to refer for the division’s requirements on the conduct of DAIDS research.

The applicability of each policy and standard operating procedure to different types of human subject research (i.e., clinical research, observational research, or clinical trials) is outlined in the document’s statement of Scope.

DAIDS expects compliance with all applicable policies and procedures within 30 days of the “effective date” stated on each document. DAIDS may, at its discretion, request the Clinical Site Monitoring Group (CSMG) monitors to spot-check documentation for compliance to these policies and SOPs during monitoring visits.
