After the recent Division of AIDS (DAIDS) Clinical Trial Unit (CTU) grant recompetition, CTUs and corresponding Clinical Research Sites (CRSs) have been selected for funding. DAIDS has placed each CRS into one of 3 scenarios for the transition into the new grant cycle. Each scenario requires a unique set of items to be completed for seamless flow of continued and/or new protocol activities. This will involve close coordination between the Clinical Trials Unit (CTU), the CRS staff, Office of Clinical Site Oversight (OCSO) Program Officer (PO), and the appropriate Network Staff.
Please click on the appropriate scenario definition below to open the scenario landing page. Please follow the directions on each page for the appropriate scenario(s) for each CRS in the CTU, as designated in the table provided in the CTU specific transition letter received from DAIDS. Due dates for completion of requirements are specified for each scenario below. Links throughout the pages will connect to applicable resources. Access to the DAIDS Learning Portal (DLP) will be necessary to access required trainings - please visit https://daidslearningportal.niaid.nih.gov to create an account.
