Chapter 35). To request a copy of these documents, call the SAMHSA Reports Clearance Officer on (240) 276–0361. Project: SAMHSA SOAR Web-Based Data Form (OMB No. 0930–0329)— EXTENSION In 2009 SAMHSA created a Technical Assistance Center to assist in the implementation of the Supplemental Security Income (SSI)/Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Outreach, Access, and Recovery (SOAR) effort in all states. The primary objective of SOAR is to improve the allowance rate for the Social Security Administration’s (SSA) disability benefits for people who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness, and who have serious mental illnesses. During the SOAR training, the importance of keeping track of SSI/SSDI applications through the process is stressed. In response to requests from states implementing SOAR, the Technical Assistance Center under Number of respondents khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Form name Responses per respondent SAMHSA’s direction developed a webbased data form that case workers 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 is hosted on the SOAR website (https://soartrack.prainc.com). Use of this form is completely voluntary. There are two parts to the SOAR Webbased Data Form. Part I of the SOAR Web-based Data Form is intended for SOAR-trained case workers to enter the outcomes of SOAR-assisted SSI/SSDI applications. Part II of the SOAR Webbased Data Form includes two sections reserved for SOAR State Team Leads to report annually. The first section of Part II collects quantitative summary data from states that do not track SOARassisted SSI/SSDI applications using the SOAR Web-based Data Form Part I. The second section of Part II collects qualitative (open-ended) questions on annual SOAR accomplishments, identified challenges, and collaborations. Data from Part I of the form can be compiled into reports on decision results and the use of SOAR critical components, such as the SSA–1696 Appointment of Representative, which allows SSA to communicate directly with the case worker assisting with the application. These reports will be reviewed by agency directors, SOAR state-level leads, and the SAMHSA SOAR Technical Assistance Center to quantify the success of the effort overall and to identify areas where additional technical assistance is needed. There are no proposed changes to Part I of this form. These questions will be answered by all 700 case worker respondents, on average 3 times per year. There are no proposed changes to Part II. These questions will be answered by 75 respondents once per year. The estimated response burden is as follows: Total responses Hours per response Total hour burden SOAR Web-based Data Form (Part I) .................................

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Department of Health and Human Services 
(HHS) notifies federal agencies of the laboratories and Instrumented 
Initial Testing Facilities (IITFs) currently certified to meet the 
standards of the Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug 
Testing Programs (Mandatory Guidelines) using Urine and of the 
laboratories currently certified to meet the standards of the Mandatory 
Guidelines using Oral Fluid.
    The Mandatory Guidelines using Urine 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); April 
30, 2010 (75 FR 22809); and on January 23, 2017 (82 FR 7920).
    The Mandatory Guidelines using Oral Fluid were first published in 
the Federal Register on October 25, 2019 (84 FR 57554) with an 
effective date of January 1, 2020.
    The Mandatory Guidelines were initially developed in accordance 
with Executive Order 12564 and section 503 of Public Law 100-71 and 
allowed urine drug testing only. The Mandatory Guidelines using Urine 
have since been revised, and new Mandatory Guidelines allowing for oral 
fluid drug testing have been published. The Mandatory Guidelines 
require strict standards that laboratories and IITFs must meet in order 
to conduct drug and specimen validity tests on specimens for federal 
agencies. HHS does not allow IITFs for oral fluid testing.
    To become certified, an applicant laboratory or IITF must undergo 
three rounds of performance testing plus an on-site inspection. To 
maintain that certification, a laboratory or IITF must participate in a 
quarterly performance testing program plus undergo periodic, on-site 
inspections.
    Laboratories and IITFs in the applicant stage of certification are 
not to be considered as meeting the minimum requirements described in 
the HHS Mandatory Guidelines using Urine and/or Oral Fluid. An HHS-
certified laboratory or IITF must have its letter of certification from 
HHS/SAMHSA (formerly: HHS/NIDA), which attests that the test facility 
has met minimum standards. HHS does not allow IITFs for oral fluid 
testing.

    * The Standards Council of Canada (SCC) voted to end its 
Laboratory Accreditation Program for Substance Abuse (LAPSA) 
effective May 12, 1998. Laboratories certified through that program 
were accredited to conduct forensic urine drug testing as required 
by U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulations. As of that 
date, the certification of those accredited Canadian laboratories 
will continue under DOT authority. The responsibility for conducting 
quarterly performance testing plus periodic on-site inspections of

with the HHS' NLCP contractor continuing to have an active role in

Canadian laboratories wishing to be considered for the NLCP may 
apply directly to the NLCP contractor just as U.S. laboratories do.
    Upon finding a Canadian laboratory to be qualified, HHS will 
recommend that DOT certify the laboratory (Federal Register, July 
16, 1996) as meeting the minimum standards of the Mandatory 
Guidelines published in the Federal Register on January 23, 2017 (82
