WISPER is a flexible system that allows each record to be facilitated in its own unique process across campus. Each record is accessible only to users who have been asked to participate via their role as a Principal Investigator, Campus Contact, Routing Recipient, Approver, Division, or RSP. Each user performs his or her step in the process and can route the record on for additional processing while still maintaining access to track or support additional data or document collection.
