Abstract

The Department of Animal Medicine at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMass) in Worcester MA conducts biomedical research. They recently added a specific animal to their animal research facility. This new addition is the zebra finch from the songbird species. The budget for research includes per diem rates for each animal. The project team was requested to calculate a per diem rate specifically for the zebra finch. Along with determining the zebra finch per diem rate, the project team was asked to come up with a configuration to calculate the rate for UMass instead of their current way which is to use the calculating method established by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
