  1. Monthly team Meeting (telecon/face to face)

Future meetings will be via telecom or face to face, unless there are urgent issues that require extensive discussion (ie – that may be face to face only.)

  1. FDAAA – what it mean to reviewers – moves schedule up.  Documentation is are posted on the web, PMC, labeling, etc (see “FDAAA Implementation” on our intranet). 

The facilities reviewer and the Chair clearly state the review deadlines may not be attainable.  This is a point of concern for the primary reviewer and she will further explore these dates with management. These dates were set by a pre-programmed Gannt chart on BLA timelines in draft form by OVRR in order to conform with FDAAA. 

  1. Documents – Reviews, memos, telecons, emails, meetings summaries, etc.

    1. All deadlines include uploading signed, certified pdf with attached Word doc into EDR.  See instruction handout.  If you have problems, please email and cc me (

Please do not upload any document without the stamp, attached Word doc and certification.  Deanna Shone is here to answer any questions, as well as I have provided you with a hand out.

  1. Communication with sponsor

Please include the primary reviewer on all communications.  If you request Cara to set up a telecom, and therefore she sit in on it to assure proper documentation of the communication.  There are a couple exceptions that are listed in the BLA SOPP.
