Orders must be e-mailed to animalorders@usf.edu.

The Principal Investigator must ensure that all costs invoiced to a grant account are allocable to the purpose of the grant. Costs allocable to one protocol may not be shifted to another in order to meet deficiencies caused by overruns, or for other reasons of convenience.

To ensure delivery during the following week, orders to the NIA must be received prior to 4:00 pm on Monday. All other orders must be received prior to 11:00 am on Thursday.
