protect the interests of the person s making the allegations or of the individual s who is the subject of the allegations as well as his her co investigators and associates if any and it is probable that the alleged incident is going to be reported publicly The written report stating the evidence reviewed summarizing relevant interviews and including the conclusions of the inquiry will be conveyed in writing to the President or his designee who will be responsible for communicating the findings to the respondent The respondent will receive a copy of the written report The committee of

address the misconduct The committee may then suggest a lesser sanction such as a letter of reprimand or letters to professional organizations and granting agencies detailing the findings of the committee of inquiry In such a case the committee of inquiry or the President may feel that a formal investigation should be completed before a sanction is imposed If so the committee of inquiry shall recommend a slate of candidates for a committee to conduct such an investigation in accordance with III C It should be emphasized that the committee of investigation is to consider only cases in which the possible sanctions are less than suspension without pay dismissal or demotion there is clear evidence of misconduct that requires consideration of major sanctions suspension without pay demotion

not find evidence of misconduct all involved parties shall be so notified by the Dean for Research and Graduate Programs and diligent efforts will be made to ensure that respondents are cleared of unsupported allegations If the committee finds the allegations to be unjust unfounded and malicious sanctions may be recommended against the complainant If the allegations founded or unfounded are deemed to have been made in good faith diligent efforts will be made to protect the position s and reputation s of the person s who made the allegations If the outcome of the inquiry indicates a need for formal investigation the external funding source if any also shall be notified as required e g under a funding agreement that an investigation is being undertaken Records of the inquiry are confidential and are to be passed on to a committee of investigation if formal review is initiated In all cases the records must be kept secure If no evidence of misconduct is found records should be

phase the committee may request documents receive evidence and call and hear witnesses Additional hearings may be held and the committee may request the involvement of outside experts The

improving the project design and or analysis may be obtained beforehand The role of the IACUC also includes a helpful review of protocols pertaining to the use of laboratory animals livestock or pets owned by or consigned to Cal Poly that are used in teaching or research If the use of livestock constitutes a significant deviation from standard husbandry practices in the production or show industries a protocol should be submitted to the IACUC for its approval before initiation of the project There may be instances in which the intended use of livestock appears to be neither standard

avoid or minimize discomfort distress and pain to the animals consistent with sound research design are used that appropriate sedation analgesia or anesthesia will be used to minimize any pain or distress Any deviation from this procedure must be justified in writing for scientific reasons by the investigator that animals that would otherwise experience severe or chronic pain or distress that cannot be relieved will be painlessly sacrificed at the end of the procedure or if appropriate during the procedure that the living conditions of animals will be appropriate for their species and contribute to their health and comfort The housing feeding and nonmedical care of the animals will be directed by a veterinarian or other scientist trained and experienced in the proper care handling
