University Laboratory Start-Up Cost Containment Program

The new “University Laboratory Start-Up Cost Containment Program” was developed by Procurement Services in collaboration with its key research equipment and supplies preferred contract suppliers in response to the recent passing of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA).

This program was developed to help University departments and researchers further leverage their research funding by offering an effective, economical way to obtain special time and money saving offers on the equipment and supplies needed for a new laboratory or expansion to an existing lab.

To take advantage of the special savings available through this program, please contact the sales representative from any of the participating University Laboratory Start-Up Program preferred contract suppliers listed below. Procurement Services will update this list as new preferred research contract suppliers are recruited for the program.
