Download as PDF 62842 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 197 / Wednesday, October 13, 2010 / Notices where the following criteria were applied: Objectives and Need for Assistance, Facilities and Resources, Cost, and Relevance to ACF. The Federal objective reviewers determined that the proposal evidenced a high technical quality, with wellqualified staff from respected institutions operating within a reasonable budget. Reviewers found that the proposal would add value compared to past research, through its focus on long-term child-only caseload dynamics, its use of State data, and its analysis of types of case that have not received as much attention in past research. The panel also pointed out that child-only cases are a high priority issue for ACF. The proposed project offers an updated and more detailed picture of the TANF child-only caseload, including the dynamics of client entry and exit from the caseload. It also provides a timely opportunity, in light of pending TANF reauthorization, to gather policy information about a vulnerable and important ACF client group. OPRE will administer the grant in collaboration with HHS—Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation (ASPE).

Current List of Laboratories Which Meet Minimum Standards To 
Engage in Urine Drug Testing for Federal Agencies

AGENCY: Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, HHS.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) notifies 
Federal agencies of the Laboratories and Instrumented Initial Testing 
Facilities (IITF) currently certified to meet the standards of the 
Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs 
(Mandatory Guidelines). 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); September 30, 1997 (62 FR 51118); April 13, 2004 (69 FR 19644); 
November 25, 2008 (73 FR 71858); December 10, 2008 (73 FR 75122); and 
April 30, 2010 (75 FR 22809).
    A notice listing all currently certified Laboratories and 
Instrumented Initial Testing Facilities (IITF) is published in the 
Federal Register during the first week of each month. If any 
Laboratory/IITF's certification is suspended or revoked, the 
Laboratory/IITF will be omitted from subsequent lists until such time 
as it is restored to full certification under the Mandatory Guidelines.
    If any Laboratory/IITF 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.
    This notice is also available on the Internet at http://www.workplace.samhsa.gov and http://www.drugfreeworkplace.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Mandatory Guidelines were initially 
developed in accordance with Executive Order 12564 and section 503 of 
Public Law 100-71. The ``Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace 
Drug Testing Programs,'' as amended in the revisions listed above, 
requires strict standards that Laboratories and Instrumented Initial 
Testing Facilities (IITF) must meet in order to conduct drug and 
specimen validity tests on urine specimens for Federal agencies.
    To become certified, an applicant Laboratory/IITF must undergo 
three rounds of performance testing plus an on-site inspection. To 
maintain that certification, a Laboratory/IITF must participate in a 
quarterly performance testing program plus undergo periodic, on-site 
inspections.
    Laboratories and IITFs in the applicant stage of certification do 
not meet the minimum requirements described in the HHS Mandatory 
Guidelines. A Laboratory/IITF must have its letter of certification 
from HHS/SAMHSA (formerly: HHS/NIDA) which attests that it has met 
minimum standards.
    In accordance with the Mandatory Guidelines dated April 30, 2010 
(75 FR 22809), the following Laboratories and Instrumented Initial

and specimen validity tests on urine specimens:
