The Cost Analysis and Rate Setting Manual for Animal Research Facilities 
provides a methodology for including a portion of costs associated with 
animal research in an animal research facility in the institution’s 
“Facilities and Administrative (F&A)” rates. This methodology will help 
animal research facilities to apply recent policy changes issued by the 
Division of Cost Allocation, Department of Health and Human Services. These 
changes in the allocation of facility and other costs are in keeping with the 
requests from investigators, research animal facility managers, institutional 
administrators and scholarly societies to treat animal research facilities 
similarly to other institutional research laboratory facilities. This manual 
has been revised by an expert committee which consulted extensively with a 
number of professional organizations. In addition, eight volunteer biomedical 
research institutions field-tested the suggested methodology.

Institutions that cannot produce an electronic copy of the manual may request 
a single copy. To order a copy or to obtain additional information, contact:
