The USDA, Agricultural Research Service (ARS), Animal Disease Research Unit (ADRU) and the University of Idaho (U of I) agree it is mutually beneficial to: (1) maintain collaborative relationships and share resources that are needed to achieve common research objectives; (2) strengthen the collaborations between ARS-ADRU and U of I in areas of mutual interest through cooperative research programs and exchanges; (3) jointly explore and coordinate research activities of mutual interest within the broad scope of animal research conducted in Washington; (4) clarify the specific oversight responsibilities of each party to the agreement; (5) encourage and facilitate direct contacts among appropriate scientists and other specialists; and (6) work toward long-term cooperation in agricultural research and development programs focused on protecting America’s food animals (livestock).

This agreement would allow mutual collaborative use of facilities and services available through both the U of I and the USDA, ARS-ADRU. The purpose of this agreement is to clarify the specific roles and responsibilities that each institution agrees to assume relative to the performance, conduct, management, and/or oversight of collaborative research activities which specifically involve the care and use of live animals in accordance ARS Policies and Procedures 130.4.v.4 [Section 20]. Animal care will be based upon the philosophies and principles articulated in the documents listed in Exhibit A.
