Has the institution implemented a campus-wide inventory system to facilitate the reuse of laboratory chemicals?:

A brief description of the program:

An intranet Research Information Management System (RIMS) has been implemented to organize and track research activities on campus. One facet of RIMS is that each laboratory maintains an on-line chemical inventory. The surplus chemical re-use system allows laboratories to mark chemicals in their inventory as 'surplus', which causes them to show up on the re-use page visible to other laboratories seeking reagents. All components of the RIMS system are only accessible internally with valid usernames and passwords.
