How to Find Our Office

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.
