The Animal Experimentation Scandal:
The National Institutes of Health should be required to compile an annual report detailing, the amount of funding directed at animal experimentation, the amount of funding directed at alternatives development, the number of animal used in experimentation, etc.
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 and to develop specific parameters to prevent excessive duplication and redundancy within the NIH 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, and regularly announced.
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.
