To utilize the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) to ensure compliance with applicable ARS policies (ARS P&P 130.4.v.2), the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) Regulations, PHS Policy, the NRC "Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals," and the FASS "Guide for the Care and Use of Agricultural Animals in Research and Testing" (FASS Ag Guide), when conducting research on food-producing animals.
ARS scientists located at the Cooperator’s facilities (University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee) will conduct research on aquatic vertebrates using Cooperator’s aquatic facilities. To avoid conflict, ambiguity and duplication of efforts regarding animal care protocols, reviews and record keeping, ARS and Cooperator desire to operate under a single set of rules/guidelines that all employees (ARS and Cooperator) will follow at Cooperator’s facilities.
