Animal and Veterinary Service (AVS) charges researchers a Per Diem rate for housing animals at one of the Biomedical vivaria. The Per Diem rate is a charge per animal cage per day, and covers basic husbandry and care. Services beyond basic husbandry are charged at an hourly Technician rate or Veterinary Rate based on the nature of the services. An Animal/Supply Ordering charge is assessed for animal or veterinary supply orders through AVS.
Researchers using funds administered through the university are assessed the UH Affiliated rates that take into account institutional indirect costs. Researchers using funds not administered through the university are assessed the Non UH Affiliated rates.
