Solicitation for Nominations for Membership on the Secretary's Advisory Committee on Human Research Protections
Document Number: 2013-26291
Type: Notice
Date: 2013-11-04
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services
The Office for Human Research Protections (OHRP), a program office in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health, Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is seeking nominations of qualified candidates to be considered for appointment as members of the Secretary's Advisory Committee on Human Research Protections (SACHRP). SACHRP provides advice and recommendations to the Secretary, HHS, through the Assistant Secretary for Health, on matters pertaining to the continuance and improvement of functions within the authority of HHS directed toward protections for human subjects in research. SACHRP was established by the Secretary, HHS, on October 1, 2002. OHRP is seeking nominations of qualified candidates to fill three positions on the Committee membership that will be vacated during the 2014 calendar year. A notice was published in the Federal Register on September 27, 2013, to solicit names of qualified applicants to be considered for appointment to the Committee. The due date for all applications was October 28, 2013. Response to this solicitation notice has been low; a sufficient number of applications has not been received to identify qualified candidates to be considered for appointment. In view of the Government shutdown, it has been determined that more time should be given for individuals to submit applications to be considered for appointment to the Committee. Therefore, this notice is being published in the Federal Register again to allow more time for qualified individuals to submit applications to fill the impending vacancies on SACHRP.
