Proposed Matching Requirements for Specific SAMHSA Discretionary Grant Funding Opportunities
In fiscal year 2009, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) plans to require matching funds for some discretionary grant funding opportunities within the Programs of Regional and National Significance as described in the President's Fiscal Year (FY) 2009 Budget Request. This notice describes the specific FY 2009 funding opportunities for which matching is proposed. We understand that some grantees could experience initial difficulty with the matching requirements. The goal of this solicitation is to seek comment so that we can design these activities to assist grantees in lessening these challenges over time.
Current List of Laboratories Which Meet Minimum Standards To Engage in Urine Drug Testing for Federal Agencies
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) notifies Federal agencies of the laboratories currently certified to meet the standards of Subpart C 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), on September 30, 1997 (62 FR 51118), and on April 13, 2004 (69 FR 19644). A notice listing all currently certified laboratories is published in the Federal Register during the first week of each month. If any laboratory's certification is suspended or revoked, the laboratory will be omitted from subsequent lists until such time as it is restored to full certification under the Mandatory Guidelines. If any laboratory has withdrawn from the HHS National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP) during the past month, it will be listed at the end, and will be omitted from the monthly listing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.
