The Mandatory Guidelines were first published in the Federal Register on April 11, 1988 (53 FR 11970), and subsequently revised in the Federal Register on June 9, 1994 (59 FR 29908), on September 30, 1997 (62 FR 51118), and on April 13, 2004 (69 FR 19644). A notice listing all currently certified laboratories is published in the Federal Register during the first week of each month. If any laboratory’s certification is suspended or revoked, the laboratory will be omitted from subsequent lists until such time as it is restored to full 15:58 Nov 01, 2007 Mrs. Giselle Hersh or Dr. Walter Vogl, Division of Workplace Programs, SAMHSA/CSAP, Room 2–1035, 1 Choke Cherry Road, Rockville, Maryland 20857; 240–276–2600 (voice), 240–276– 2610 (fax).

Subpart C of the Mandatory Guidelines, ‘‘Certification of Laboratories Engaged in Urine Drug Testing for Federal Agencies,’’ sets strict standards that laboratories must meet in order to conduct drug and specimen validity tests on urine specimens for Federal agencies. To become certified, an applicant laboratory must undergo three rounds of performance testing plus an on-site inspection. To maintain that certification, a laboratory must participate in a quarterly performance testing program plus undergo periodic, on-site inspections. Laboratories which claim to be in the applicant stage of certification are not to be considered as meeting the minimum requirements described in the HHS Mandatory Guidelines. A laboratory must have its letter of certification from HHS/SAMHSA (formerly: HHS/NIDA) which attests that it has met minimum standards. In accordance with Subpart C of the Mandatory Guidelines dated April 13, FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES VerDate Aug<31>2005 certification under the Mandatory Guidelines. If any laboratory has withdrawn from the HHS National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP) during the past month, it will be listed at the end, and will be omitted from the monthly listing thereafter.

Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; 
Comment Request

    In compliance with Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995 concerning opportunity for public comment on proposed 
collections of information, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health 
Services Administration (SAMHSA) will publish periodic summaries of 
proposed projects. To request more information on the proposed projects 
or to obtain a copy of the information collection plans, call the 
SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276-1243.
    Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collections of 
information are necessary for the proper performance of the functions 
of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical 
utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways 
to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, 
including through the use of automated collection techniques or other 
forms of information technology.

Proposed Project: Access to Recovery (ATR) Program (OMB No. 0930-
0266)--Revision

    The Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) is charged with 
implementing the Access to Recovery (ATR) program which will allow 
grantees (States, Territories, the District of Columbia and Tribal 
Organizations) a means to implement voucher programs for substance 
abuse clinical treatment and recovery support services. The ATR program 
is part of a Presidential initiative to: (1) Provide client choice 
among substance abuse clinical treatment and recovery support service 
providers, (2) expand access to a comprehensive array of clinical 
treatment and recovery support options (including faith-based 
programmatic options), and (3) increase substance abuse treatment 
capacity. Monitoring outcomes, tracking costs, and preventing waste, 
fraud and abuse to ensure accountability and effectiveness in the use 
of Federal funds are also important elements of the ATR program. 
Grantees, as a contingency of their award, are responsible for 
collecting data from their clients at intake, discharge, and follow-up 
(at six months post intake).
    The primary purpose of this data collection activity is to meet the 
reporting requirements of the Government Performance and Results Act 
(GPRA) by allowing SAMHSA to quantify the effects and accomplishments 
of SAMHSA programs. The following table is an estimated annual response 
burden for this effort.
