Effective September 2021, all Harvard Sponsored Role (HSR) request submissions must be completed using the HSR Request Form. The form can be completed electronically or by scanning a printed document and returning for processing. This new form captures additional information that is now required in the HSR Portal. All fields must be completed and signed, a typed signature will be accepted for a form completed electronically and emailed.

For all HSR related requests and correspondence, email: HMS-CPF-HSR-REQUESTS@HU.onmicrosoft.com 

Please refer to the HSR Request process diagram for the steps to take to both request a HSR and provision an ID Card. Please note, the current process is still evolving and that additional process changes will be communicated as they are developed. 

The HSR Request Form and process should be utilized by a Point Person for onboarding or renewing a HSR requiring an ID card for access to any Harvard Medical School facility or leased space. A Point Person is required when you are unable to directly sponsor a HSR per the Harvard University HSR Policy. A Point Person represents and is authorized by their organization or company to make requests for HSR access to their facility and can attest to the legitimacy of the HSR.
