The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) notifies federal agencies of the laboratories and Instrumented Initial Testing Facilities (IITF) currently certified to meet the standards 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); September 30, 1997 (62 FR 51118); April 13, 2004 (69 FR 19644); November 25, 2008 (73 FR 71858); December 10, 2008 (73 FR 75122); and on April 30, 2010 (75 FR 22809). A notice listing all currently HHS-certified laboratories and IITFs is published in the Federal Register during the first week of each month. If any laboratory or IITF certification is suspended or revoked, the laboratory or IITF will be omitted from subsequent lists until such time as it is restored to full certification under the Mandatory Guidelines. If any laboratory or IITF has withdrawn from the HHS National Laboratory Certification Program (NLCP) during the past month, it will be listed at the end and will be omitted from the monthly listing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.

The United States Department of the Treasury's Bureau of the Fiscal Service (Fiscal Service) has developed a new Treasury electronic retirement savings bond to give working individuals (particularly those not currently saving) a new opportunity to begin saving for retirement.\1\ The bond, targeted to new savers who lack access to an employer-sponsored retirement plan, is available as an investment for eligible individuals who choose to save in Roth IRAs maintained by Treasury's financial agent. A Roth IRA invested in the new bond is called a myRA[supreg] (short for my Retirement Account). Account holders can transfer their myRA account balance into a private sector Roth IRA of their choosing at any time.\2\

Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
The mission of SAMHSA is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America's communities. Established in 1992, the agency was directed by Congress to target effective substance abuse and mental health services to the people most in need, and to translate research in these areas more effectively and more rapidly into the general health care system. NREPP is a key public resource SAMHSA has developed to help meet this directive. This notice announces the redesign of NREPP to better align the registry with the standards and processes of other evidence-based repositories. A re-launch of the Web site with revised content is anticipated in late fall/early winter 2015. The notice explains the changes in how programs and practices will be identified for NREPP, how submissions will be screened and reviewed, and provides guidance on accessing updated information on the NREPP site. Potential applicants should be aware that this notice includes updated information relating to the eligibility of interventions for inclusion in NREPP and changes in the program and practice review process that supersedes guidance provided in earlier Federal Register notices.

Announcement of Requirements and Registration for Offender Reintegration Toolkit Challenge
Document Number: 2015-11098
Type: Notice
Date: 2015-05-08
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration
(1) What action is being taken? The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has issued an Offender Reintegration Toolkit Challenge to help reduce recidivism and promote the public health and safety of communities. (2) Why is this action necessary? Studies show that people leaving the criminal justice system have a higher proportion of substance use and mental disorders than the general population. Treatment and recovery support, along with housing and employment are necessary to help newly released individuals address substance use and mental disorders and to keep them from reoffending. Easy to find information and resources can help them (and their family and friends) as they return to their communities. (3) What is the objective of the challenge? To reduce recidivism and provide resources and support for individuals leaving the criminal justice system and re-entering their communities. (4) What is the intended effect of this action? Family, friends, parole officers, and community service staff will help ex-offenders connect to resources for housing, employment, healthcare, and treatment and recovery for substance use and mental health disorders. By connecting them to necessary supports, ex-offenders will successfully transition back into their communities and live successful, healthy lives. SAMHSA is seeking solutions to this problem through cost-effective, portable, technology-based products that effectively reach a diverse population of ex-offenders being released from jail or prison, and the friends, family, parole officers, case managers, and service center staff who help them. Technology-based products may include, but are not limited to, web applications, mobile apps, and Web sites.
