           expressed area of interest.

        Procedures and Implications
After the applied dissertation committee has approved the proposal and the
  IRB package, the student should electronically forward, via ADRIANA, a
  copy of the approved proposal together with the completed IRB
  submission package to the ARC for review. (See the ARC Web page.)

http://www.schoolofed.nova.edu/arc/irb/irb_doc/how_tosubmitr
  eview.doc

It is suggested that the student begin preparing the IRB documents when
    the Chair states that the proposal is near approval. Doing this will
    conserve time.

The Chair must review all IRB documents before submission.
