Welcome to the UIowa SPARC Request Services Catalog
I-CART is an online one-stop-shopping experience that efficiently manages all of your ICTS-related research requests and services. Anyone requesting to use ICTS services must use I-CART. If you need help planning your project, please select the appropriate consulting service to meet with a service manager.
I-CART is powered by Medical University of South Carolina’s Services, Pricing, & Applications for Research Centers (SPARC) request management system.
Search for services above or browse the catalog to your left. You may only select services applicable to ONE research study/project at a time. Please watch the following training videos to learn more.
May I submit a request for services for multiple research studies/projects simultaneously?
No. Please browse and select services for only one research study/project at a time.
May I select and add services from multiple Service Providers and Programs at one time?
Yes. Please feel free to browse, select, and add services from any Service Provider, Program, and/or Core displayed in the system for any given research study/project.
How many Authorized Users can I add?
Add as many Authorized Users as you feel is pertinent. There is no limit.
What is the difference between a Research Study and a Project?
A Research Study is an individual research protocol with defined aims and outcomes.
How is I-CART Request calculating my indirect costs?
The original requester for your study/project defined both the funding source of the study/project and the indirect cost rate. I-CART Request uses this data to calculate your total overall indirect costs.
