Data Access - FAQs

Will I have access to data from my submissions?

Yes. In response to requests from users, NCI has developed a basic reporting system to allow submitting organizations to use CTRP for their own clinical research portfolio management.   Centers can login to CTRP and perform searches on all trials they have submitted or are listed as a participating site on. If a center should require a more detailed report of information on their trials, they may submit a request via the CTRO ( and a CTRP analyst will work with them to generate a custom report.

Will my data be shared with awardees or others outside of NCI?

NCI does not intend that protocol documents, IRB approval, Informed Consent forms, and Trial Summary Reports be shared with anyone other than the submitter. However, all records in the possession or control of the NIH are subject to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. § 552, and must be released in response to a FOIA request unless NIH determines that the record is exempt from release under one of the FOIA's exemptions. Since FOIA affords requesters an opportunity to contest an agency's determination, NCI awardees subject to this policy are advised that records that are determined by NIH to be exempt could subsequently be required to be released in response to FOIA requests.

Will I be able to access my accrual information in CTRP?

Yes. Submitters will have access within CTRP to view any accrual information they have submitted for trials on which they are the Lead Organization.
