Proposed Project: SAMHSA SOAR Web-Based Data Form—NEW In 2009 the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services created a Technical Assistance Center to assist in the implementation of the SSI/SSDI Outreach Access and Recovery (SOAR) effort in all states. SOAR’s primary objective is to improve the allowance rate for Social Security Administration (SSA) disability benefits for people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and who have serious mental illnesses. SOAR has three main components: Strategic planning for systems change, training for case managers and ongoing technical assistance. During the SOAR training, the importance of keeping track of SSI/SSDI applications through the process is stressed, since the process is complex and involves several steps. In response to requests from states implementing SOAR, the Technical Assistance Center under SAMHSA’s direction developed a web-based data form that case managers can use to track the progress of submitted applications, including decisions received from SSA either on initial application or on appeal. This password-protected web-based data form will be housed on the SOAR Web site (http://www.prainc.com/soar.). Use of this form is completely voluntary. In addition, data from the web-based form can be compiled into reports on decision results and the use of SOAR core components, such as the SSA–1696 Appointment of Representative which allows SSA to communicate directly with the case manager assisting with the application. These reports will be reviewed by agency directors, SOAR state-level leads, and the national SOAR Technical Assistance Center and SOAR national evaluation team to quantify the success of the effort overall and to identify areas where additional technical assistance is needed. The estimated response burden is as follows: Information source Number of respondents Responses per respondent Total responses Hours per response Total hours SOAR Data Form ................................................................. 800 36 28,800 .25 7,200 Send comments to Summer King, SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer, Room 8–1099, One Choke Cherry Road, Rockville, MD 20857 and e-mail her a copy at summer.king@samhsa.hhs.gov.

Current List of Laboratories and Instrumented Initial Testing 
Facilities 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 
on 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.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mrs. Giselle Hersh, Division of 
Workplace Programs, SAMHSA/CSAP, Room 2-1042, One Choke Cherry Road, 
Rockville, Maryland 20857; 240-276-2600 (voice), 240-276-2610 (fax).

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 {or set{time}  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 Instrumented Initial Testing Facilities (IITF) in 
the applicant stage of certification are not to be considered as 
meeting 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 November 25, 2008 
(73 FR 71858), the following Laboratories and Instrumented Initial 
Testing Facilities (IITF) meet the minimum standards to conduct drug 
and specimen validity tests on urine specimens:

Instrumented Initial Testing Facilities (IITF)

    None.
