FDA has provided Article 3 notice to NTEU that the Office of Regulatory Affairs (ORA) plans to implement a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for “Disclosing Information Pursuant to 20.88 Single Signature Agreements.” According to the notice, the SOP sets forth the procedures for sharing non-public information with state and local (including tribal) government officials pursuant to single-signature 20.88 agreements (SSAs) (also known as a Long-Term Food Information Sharing Agreement). The SOP will apply to ORA when reviewing requests for non-public information submitted by state government officials pursuant to a previously executed SSA. A copy of the proposed SOP is available upon request to impacted bargaining unit employees.
NTEU has requested a briefing and to bargain this change. If you have any comments or questions, please contact your chapter president.
