Accordingly, AHRQ has revoked the listing of Independent Data Safety Monitoring, Inc., PSO number P0114, effective at 12:00 Midnight ET (2400) on January 15, 2013. More information on PSOs can be obtained through AHRQ’s PSO Web site at http://www.pso.AHRQ.gov/ index.html. Background The Patient Safety Act, Public Law 109–41,42 U.S.C. 299b–21 b–26, provides for the formation of PSOs, which collect, aggregate, and analyze confidential information regarding the quality and safety of health care delivery. The Patient Safety Rule, 42 CFR part 3, authorizes AHRQ, on behalf of the Secretary of HHS, to list as a PSO an entity that attests that it meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for listing. A PSO can be ‘‘delisted’’ by the Secretary if it is found no longer to meet the requirements of the Patient Safety Act and Patient Safety Rule. Section 3.108(d) of the Patient Safety Rule requires AHRQ to provide public notice when it removes an organization from the list of federally approved PSOs. Independent Data Safety Monitoring, Inc. failed to respond to a Notice of Preliminary Finding of Deficiency sent by AHRQ pursuant to 42 CFR 3.108(a)(2) and a Notice of Proposed Revocation and Delisting sent by AHRQ pursuant to 42 CFR 3.108(a)(3)(iii)(C) which found that Independent Data Safety Monitoring, Inc. had not complied with its attestation to notify the Secretary if there has been a change in the accuracy of the information it submitted for initial listing, which includes contact information for the PSO (42 CFR 3.102(a)(1)(vi)). Independent Data Safety Monitoring, Inc. did not exercise its opportunity to be heard in writing to respond to the deficiency specified in the notices, and has not provided any evidence of a good National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health Personal Protective Technology for Pesticide Handlers: Stakeholder Meeting PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated: February 11, 2013.

Description: The EHSREP is a longitudinal study originally designed to meet the 1994 requirement for a national evaluation of the Early Head Start program. Child and family assessments were conducted when children were 14 months old, 24 months old, 36 months old, in the spring prior to kindergarten entry, and again in the spring of the sixth year of formal schooling (5th grade for most children). Today, children of the EHSREP are approximately 14–17 years of age (depending on their age at the time of enrollment in the study). The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) within the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is proposing to track the children/families who participated in the Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project (EHSREP) until the children reach 18 years of age. The purpose of tracking these participants is to maintain up-todate contact information for the children/families in the event that the ACF determines that a future follow-up to the EHSREP will take place.
