GRANT AND CONTRACT PROCEDURES- Back

 

"Interinstitutional Assurance" Agreement (between Johns Hopkins and a company receiving an NIH research award)

JHU faculty members often arrange to carry out portions of research that involve the use of animals via an NIH-funded subcontract from an NIH-awardee (often a private company) that does not itself have an approved Animal Welfare Assurance on file with the NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW). In such situations, OLAW requires that the company apply for an "Interinstitutional Assurance," under which JHU assures that the research will be carried out under the terms of its own OLAW-approved Animal Welfare Assurance.

Interinstitutional Assurance forms are processed by the JHU Animal Care and Use Committee office. If you are handling completion of this form, please contact the office at acuc@jhmi.edu or call Ms. Vanessa Girton at 443-287-3739. The office will assist in the accurate completion of the form and in obtaining both of the required JHU signatures. Note that both the Institutional Official, Dr. Denis Wirtz, and the IACUC Chair, Dr. Nancy Ator, have designated individuals to OLAW that may sign in his/her stead. A sample form may be downloaded at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/olaw/sampledoc/
