  • You are strongly encouraged to consult the NC State Survey Activities Calendar to see if there are other surveys being administered during the same time you are planning on administering yours.
  • Prior to completing your form it is very helpful to first speak with a member of the OIRP staff to discuss any questions or specific requests you might have.
  • As per Regulation 01.25.17, most projects will also necessitate researchers working with OIRP to identify the population and select the sample for their survey. Before OIRP can provide contact information for the selected sample researchers must submit the Sample Request and Confidentiality Agreement Form.
