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).

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 If any laboratory has withdrawn from the HHS National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP) during the past month, it will be listed at the end, and will be omitted from the monthly listing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.

Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs
Document Number: E8-26726
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-11-25
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
This Final Notice of Revisions to the Mandatory Guidelines for Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs (Revisions to Mandatory Guidelines) addresses collection and testing of urine specimens, the requirements for the certification of Instrumented Initial Test Facilities (IITFs), and the role of and standards for collectors and Medical Review Officers (MROs). Additional notices of Proposed Revisions to the Mandatory Guidelines addressing the use of point of collection testing (POCT), oral fluid testing, sweat patch testing, hair testing, and associated issues will be published at a later date. With regard to the use of alternative specimens including hair, oral fluid, and sweat patch specimens in Federal Workplace Drug Testing Programs, significant issues have been raised by Federal agencies during the review process which require further examination, and may require additional study and analysis. As part of the review process for these alternative tests, the Department of Health and Human Services (``HHS'' or ``Department'') plans to issue a notice in the Federal Register requesting information and assistance from the general public to provide or identify data and research findings that address specific areas of interest.

Document Number: E8-26102
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-11-03
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
This notice is to inform the public that the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) intends to award approximately $625,000 (total costs) per year for up to five years to the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA). This is not a formal request for applications. Assistance will be provided only to the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) based on the receipt of a satisfactory application that is approved by an independent review group. Funding Opportunity Title: SP-09-004. Catalog Of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) Number: 93.243. Authority: Sections 509, 516 and 520A of the Public Health Service Act, as amended. Justification: Only the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) is eligible to apply. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is seeking to award a single source grant to the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) to leverage existing resources and conference support to expand SAMHSA's scope and capacity to provide training and technical assistance to a large number of community leaders across the country who are committed to substance abuse prevention, substance abuse/addiction treatment and recovery support, and substance abuse/addiction-related mental health issues. The Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) is uniquely qualified to carry out the activities of this program because the purpose of the program is to partner with a national organization that has special expertise and unique broad, national-level experience in working with community anti-drug coalitions. CADCA is the only national organization that annually provides training and technical assistance through a national leadership conference for thousands of members of community coalitions dedicated to preventing substance abuse. CADCA currently is the sole organization that plays a major role in helping to strengthen and develop the nation's prevention infrastructure of anti-drug coalitions in support of on-going activities funded by SAMHSA's priority grant programs including: the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant, the Strategic Prevention Framework State Incentive Grant, and the Drug Free Communities Support Program. CADCA is the only identified organization that currently meets this experience level and national reach to over 5,000 identified anti- drug coalitions across the country. CADCA has long been recognized in communities as well as States throughout the nation as the national voice for the advocacy and technical support of anti-drug coalitions. As such, it is uniquely qualified and positioned to carry out the requirements of this announcement.
