ACTION: Notice and comment period. AGENCY: This Federal Register notice seeks the comments of interested parties on draft compliance guidance developed by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) for recipients of extramural research awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and other agencies of the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS). Through this notice, OIG is setting forth its general views on the value and fundamental principles of compliance programs for colleges and universities and other recipients of PHS awards for biomedical and behavioral research and the specific elements that these award recipients should consider when developing and implementing an effective compliance program. DATES: To assure consideration, comments must be delivered to the address provided below by no later than 5 p.m. on December 28, 2005. ADDRESSES: Please mail or deliver written comments to the following address: Office of Inspector General, Department of Health and Human Services, Attention: OIG–1026–CPG, Room 5246, Cohen Building, 330 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20201. We do not accept comments by facsimile (FAX) transmissions. In commenting, please refer to file code OIG–1026–CPG.

Stern, Office of Counsel to the Inspector General, (202) 619–0335, or Joel Schaer, Office of External Affairs, (202) 619–0089. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Compliance program guidance (CPG) is a major OIG initiative that was developed to assist the health care community in preventing and reducing fraud and abuse in Federal programs. In the last several years, OIG has developed and issued compliance program guidance directed at the following segments of the health care industry: clinical laboratories; hospitals; home health agencies; third-party medical billing companies; durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and supply companies; Medicare+Choice organizations offering coordinated care plans; hospices; nursing facilities; individual and small group physician practices; ambulance suppliers; and pharmaceutical manufacturers. Copies of these CPGs can be found on the OIG Web site at http://oig.hhs.gov/fraud/ complianceguidance.html. Under its governing statute, OIG’s oversight responsibility extends to all programs and operations of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS or Department) and, accordingly, OIG promotes compliance efforts by all recipients of Department funds.1 One community of paramount importance to the Department’s public health efforts is that of colleges, universities, and other recipients of public funds that conduct biomedical and behavioral research. These institutions may have organizational differences from the users of past compliance guidances, but we believe they have the same basic need to promote compliance measures. We understand that research institutions have been developing compliance programs in increasing numbers. 1 OIG and the PHS agencies, including NIH, share responsibility for encouraging compliance by recipients of research awards. In distinguishing the roles of the two agencies, we note that NIH is more focused on compliance with administrative, scientific, and financial requirements, while OIG is more focused on the avoidance of fraudulent activities. OIG has chosen to publish this guidance, in close coordination with NIH and other PHS agencies, as part of a larger initiative that is designed in part to assist institutions in avoiding criminal and civil fraud investigations. This compliance guidance is consistent with guidance provided by NIH on its Web site, http:// grants1.nih.gov/grants/oer.htm. E:\FR\FM\28NON1.SGM 28NON1
