Request a Letter of Support

In order to obtain a LOS for an externally funded grant that will use CNICS data, an approved concept study is not a necessary first step. If you don’t have an approved concept study by the CNICS review committee (RCC), the letter will serve as a statement that the data may be available for use, but this is not a guarantee.

Please also note that a supplemental grant to an approved CNICS concept should be reviewed by the RCC by email or the full committee, depending on the complexity of the study. The proper process of obtaining approval to work in CNICS will remain the same for each new study. Please reference the submit a proposal page. A draft letter is required for all requests for LOS from CNICS.
