Each SRAS SOP goes through a regular review (at least annually), originating with the SRAS staff.  Based on their input, proposed edits are recommended and posted for comment via the Weekly Research Update email for feedback for a least a one-week period.  Suggestions received are reviewed with the staff for any additional comments.  SOPs are then submitted to the SRAS Steering Committee for their final review and approval before posting in final form on the SRAS website.   

All SRAS SOPs are considered dynamic documents.  Feedback at any time regarding the current SOPs or to suggest a need for any additional SOPs can be sent directly to the SRAS manager
