eAnimal Ordering Module

Animal procurement will transition from Marketplace to LAMPS on July 6, 2021, in sync with the go-live of the university’s new HR and finance system, Workday. The eAnimal Ordering Module of LAMPS will become available to researchers at that time

The eAnimal Ordering Module (a.k.a. LARS) is released over three phases.

  • Phase 1 (Complete – May 1, 2020): Barcoded cage cards; New split/wean logs in facilities; DCM Procurement transitioned to eAnimal Ordering, entering animal orders placed in Marketplace into LAMPS.
  • Phase 2 (July 2021): Animal requisitions will be created and submitted in LAMPS.
  • Phase 3 (TBD): Electronic census tracking implemented in waves over several months.

View the LAMPS Project Page for more information on the eAnimal Ordering rollout.
