July 1, 2022 ASOR and IVAC rates update calendar iconThese rates, which are now reflected on the general Rates webpage and the Germ-Free Mouse Facility website, went into effect on July 1, 2022.

All rates have been reviewed and approved by the University’s Financial Analysis Office.

Rates for other ULAM research service areas will continue to be re-evaluated on an annual basis coinciding with the end of the University’s fiscal year (June 30) and are subject to change.

While ULAM strives to minimize or prevent any rate fluctuation, study teams are encouraged to follow standard best practices for baseline budgeting which allow for incremental cost changes of between 2 – 5% per year throughout multi-year grant projects.


Please contact the ULAM Business Office at or (734) 764-0277 with any questions or concerns you may have. Staff can assist with billing inquiries, budget consultations, and cost estimates for both specialized research support services as well as day-to-day animal care.
