The Animal Experimentation Scandal:
An Audit of the National Institutes of Health
Funding of Animal Experimentation


Congress should commission a General Accounting Office audit of the National Institutes of Health grant system, also correlating research contracts data, to examine the issue of duplication within the system.

The NIH grant approval system, on the agency level, as well as the facility level, must be overhauled to put more community representation on Institutional Animal Care & Use Committees (IACUC) for all facilities that receive NIH funding, and all IACUC meetings must be open to the public.

The CRISP system must be overhauled so that all grant abstracts include a full abstract, funding amount, species names, etc. This will allow for a higher degree of accountability within the NIH.

Specific limits must be developed to prevent excessive duplication and redundancy within the NIH system.

All branches of the federal government that perform animal-based experimentation should be required to maintain an internet accessible database of all funded projects to prevent inter-agency project duplication.
