Researchers seeking Froedtert Health Administrative Approval for their research should submit the Request for Froedtert Health OCRICC Administrative Approval Application. You will be contacted once the project is logged with key information about the assigned OCRICC staff and the status of operational and financial feasibility review.

New in 2019: This application should not be submitted until all applicable and necessary study documents are available for OCRICC review. A list of OCRICC required documents can be found below. We also have several guidance documents that provide additional assistance related to the process.

Completion of this application and attaching all required documents will support OCRICC’s timely and efficient operational and financial feasibility review. A project cannot be submitted without all required documents.

The Froedtert Health OCRICC Approval Application will allow researchers to save their work & come back to facilitate a complete submission.

Researchers must retain this information; Froedtert Health OCRICC will not retrieve incomplete applications from the system.

As of July 1, 2019, the Medicare Attestation Forms have been retired. OCRICC facilitates compliance with the regulatory requirements that apply to Froedtert Health entities regarding investigational drugs and/or medical devices and will absorb this into the Medicare Coverage Analysis (MCA) process. Froedtert Health OCRICC is not responsible for compliance with the regulatory requirements that apply to MCW Professional Services.
