Additionally, NARMS examines enteric bacteria for genetic interrelatedness using methods such as pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and multilocus sequence typing. NARMS scientists enter PFGE results into CDC’s PulseNet database or USDA’s VetNet database. In March 2007, an External Subcommittee of the Science Board to FDA conducted a review of the NARMS program. This subcommittee made recommendations related to four areas of work performed by NARMS: (1) Sampling, (2) research, (3) international activities, and (4) data management and reporting. Included in the report was a recommendation to develop long-range strategic plans. In September 2008, NARMS held an interagency planning meeting in Athens, GA to prioritize the Science Board subcommittee’s recommendations and implement measures to address them. In August 2009, a second meeting was held in Rockville, MD to report on progress, and to begin formulating the Strategic Plan that is the subject of this notice. NARMS has established four strategic goals: (1) To develop, implement, and optimize a shared database, with advanced data acquisition, analysis, and reporting tools; (2) to make sampling more representative and more applicable to trend analysis; (3) to strengthen collaborative research projects; and (4) to support international activities that promote food safety, especially those that promote mitigation of the spread of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria and resistance determinants. These four goals are discussed more fully in the Strategic Plan and build on the progress made since NARMS’ inception, with special emphasis on the recommendations made by the FDA Science Board subcommittee based on its review of the NARMS program in 2007. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES II.
