How do I create a copy of an AUA?

Audience: Principal Investigator

 

Instructions: Follow the steps below to copy an entire Animal Use Application (AUA).  This feature allows you to generate a new study (or multiple studies) from an existing one so that you can focus on customizing the pre-populated text within the SmartForm rather than re-typing the content altogether.

 

  1. Login to eBridge.
  2. Locate the Animal Use Application (AUA) you wish to copy by selecting either the Approved tab (to the right of In Progress) or Animal Use near the MCW logo at the top of your screen.
    1. From the Approved tab:Select the Name (hyperlink) to navigate to the existing AUA Workspace.

  • PI First Name
  • Department = PI’s department
  • Division = PI’s division within the department
  • AUA ID = AUA ID #, e.g. AUA00000001
  • AUA Title = Title of the AUA
  • Status = State of the AUA (i.e.  Approved, Expired, or Terminated)
  • Species = animal species of that AUA
  • AUA Initial Approval Date = date that the AUA was approved for the first time
  • AUA Current Approval Date = date that should be listed on grant applications
    • For non-USDA-regulated species (e.g. mice, rats, fish), the current approval date is either the initial IACUC approval date OR the most recent 3-year de novo IACUC approval date, whichever is more recent.
