Overview: The Federal wide Assurance is required for NIH funded studies. It is a written assurance filed with the Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP) that outlines under which terms a study will be reviewed, approved, and conducted. This document, signed by the Institutional Official, sets forth certain requirements that must be upheld by an institution who has filed such an agreement. One of the terms deals with written agreements for non-affiliated investigators and institutions.
