Good Afternoon Lorraine,
On our intranet site, we have a table listing all of the approved vendors and they all share the same delivery cut-off times. We also post a schedule of Holidays and how it will impact deliveries and order submission deadlines. Normally, we have a cutoff of Tuesday at 8am for deliveries to be received on the following Monday. We try to receive all animal shipments on Mondays, but there are some variations due to vendor availability, transport conditions, weather, etc.
Per order basis, we have the equivalent of a Bill of Lading that gets produced through GRANITE. Everything goes into Quarantine upon arrival. Once they clear quarantine, we split the cages according to how they requested the animals to be housed and deliver the cages to the staging area of their corridor along with new cage cards; then notify the PIs that their animals have cleared quarantine and have been delivered to staging. Sorry if that's too much detail and not what you're asking. As for Cayuse, we haven't seen how that works, yet, but we should find out in the next couple weeks.
For the staff placing the orders - we try to provide them some detail before they place orders... however, the new Animal Ordering experience will blow this out of the water. Anyways, I've attached a screenshot from a portion of our intranet site which provides some detail to the requestor. However, I think you're looking more for what's provided "per order", right?
