Purchasing Policy and Procedure
REVIEW AND APPROVAL OF ACTIVITIES INVOLVING LIVE ANIMALS
The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee is responsible
for reviewing and approving all teaching and research activities
involving the use of live animals.
PURCHASE OF LIVE ANIMALS
All requisitions for the purchase of live animals from an
off-campus vendor must be approved in the Small Animal Care
Facility (SACF). This is an approval in the Advantage system
linked to the commodity code. Requisitions for live animals
which have an incorrect commodity code will not be processed
by Purchasing Services.
Prepare a requisition (RQS) following normal purchasing procedures.
The RQS must state:
- approved animal protocol number
- date required.
The SACF Office will approve or disapprove the requisition.
If the requisition is approved the animals will be ordered.
Live mammals will be delivered to the SACF for quarantine.
Quarantine regulations for animal species requested may be
obtained from the SACF Office, (602) 523-1330.
