Per Diem Schedule

Effective July 2021, the following table gives the current rates for per diems and services within LAR.

All new animal research projects utilizing accounts paid directly by corporate sponsors (e.g. non-university accounts) will be charged an additional 52% above the listed rates.

LAR per diems are subject to inflationary increases. Please budget for an annual increase in rates of up to 3% when budgeting for grants. The increase will not be added unless necessary but it is best to be prepared.

To inquire about rates, please contact LAR Administrative office at 919-513-2050 or email laroffice@ncsu.edu.

Effective July 2020, CPL is using surgical procedure packages to greatly simplify billing.

Each package represents a daily room rate (7:30-5:00 M-F) for a procedure regardless of the number of animals. The package includes anesthesia, drugs, supplies, setup, room use, technician time for room set up, cleaning, and disinfection; instruments/sterilization, etc. Large animal packages are billed when the Large Animal Operating Room is used or animals are over 100lbs and require a hoist to lift.

Users will no longer receive an itemized bill for package services. All items not included in the packaged services are “special orders”. These require more time to acquire and will continue to be billed at cost.
