Animal Ordering and Billing

How to Get Animals

If the animals are coming from an approved vendor and are to be housed in one of the DAR Managed Animal Facilities—complete an animal order request in the DAR BIO Access system. Instructions can be found here.


There are deadlines for submitting an animal order request. Please refer to Submitting Animal Request Forms. All animal orders received by the current weeks deadline should expect an email order confirmation that week between 8:30 a.m. Thursday and 12:00 p.m. Friday.


How does DAR determine what C-FOAPAL to charge when animals are ordered?

PIs must enter the CFOP information into the DAR BIO system, see the DAR BIO instructions.

When does the C-FOAPAL change?

The same C-FOAPAL will continue to be billed until changed in the DAR BIO system by the PI see DAR BIO instructions.

How do I request a change in the C-FOAPAL currently being billed?

PIs must enter updates to CFOP information into the DAR BIO system, see the DAR BIO instructions.

What is the time frame to change a FOAP for billing?

The CFOP must changed in the DAR BIO system by the PI no later than the 15th of the month that the CFOP ends. The PI’s business office will be responsible for making any corrections billed to the PI's account if not changed in a timely manner.
