Guiding Principles

Successful projects need core agreements against which decisions and ideas are reflected. The eRAM project members have committed to the following:

  • Minimize administrative burden on faculty and staff who prepare, review, and approve applications.
  • Provide necessary protocol and animal management data for investigator, unit, and institutional management, serving as the single source for protocol and animal management data.
  • Maintain a balance between minimum requirements needed to submit a protocol and desire for more institutional data.
  • Maintain a balance between unit flexibility and institutional consistency with ease of use being the prevailing criterion.
  • Maintain compatibility with existing institutional systems.
  • Maintain maximum system transparency for all users.
  • Maintain a high level of sensitivity to the need to balance transparency of information against the need for the safety and security of investigators.
