Upcoming Holiday Orders

  • Just as a heads up 4th of July is coming up as well! UGA will be closed on 7/4 and URAR will not receive animal deliveries from Jackson Labs, Envigo, or any other vendors that may deliver on that day

End of Fiscal Year Billing Information

Also end of year is coming up! This year URAR will be billing the full month of June on the FY22 budget. Since the cut off for accounting is 7/13 we will be shortening the time for review/approval. Both PI and business manager will have 2 business days each instead of 3 to review/approve their invoices before the invoice is auto approved.
