Federalwide Assurance (FWA)
An assurance of compliance, or simply
"assurance," is an official document that confirms and defines
particular relationships between federal agencies and individual institutions.
UAMS and its affiliated institutions have a
federalwide assurance that has
been approved by the Office for Human Research Protections that formalizes the
institutionís commitment to protect human subjects. All institutions
"engaged" in federal funded research must have a federal wide
assurance approved by OHRP.
