Protocol Initiation Form (PIF)

The Protocol Initiation Form (PIF) alerts the SRC Administration office that a new research project is in the works.  The PIF is used to create an administrative study file for budget and contract information.  This administrative file will have a specific Study Number which is a unique identifier that will remain with the study throughout it's history within the institution.
