7. CERTIFICATIONS HHS DoD Only Laboratory with Duel Certifications

8. SPECIFICS Procedures Compliance with HHS SOPs Instrumentation Security Facility Renovations Flood

9. FT MEADE CIVILIAN TESTING HISTORY Application sent to RTI 19 Sept 2000 Eligibility notification 10 Oct 2000 Third set of PTs and first Civilian Inspection March 2001 Revised Inspection and PT Program April 2001 Validation of Collection kits and CCF July 2001 Certification granted OCT 2001-Testing begins Dept of Army Civilians only customers until Spring of 2005

10. MILESTONES FY04/05/06 Oct 04- Decision Considered to Terminate Program No Funding No Support Too Few Specimens-DA only Dec/Jan 05- Initial DOI Contract Negotiations Jan 05- Exceptional NLCP Inspection

11. MILESTONES Feb 05- DOI SOW Developed/Pembroke MRO Services obtained Feb-Apr 05- Preparation Apr 05- Begin DOI/NSA Pilot Study May-Jun 05- Expand Pilot Study (3) Jun-Oct 05-Continue DOI testing (3) OCT 05- FY06- Army, Navy, DOI ( NSA, NGA, Wash HQ)

12. MILESTONES Summer 06- DOI additional agencies ?? FY07- Additional DoD ???

13. Process up to 90,000 samples/month-AVG 75,000 (5 to 8,000 CIV) 3 shifts per day - 3 Officers & 70 civilian employees Laboratory Statistics The Tripler Drug lab is the largest in DOD testing up to 70,000 specimens a month performing over 4,000,000 tests a year. We do this with 2 military personnel and 65 civilian employees and operate on a budget of over 5 million dollars a year.The Tripler Drug lab is the largest in DOD testing up to 70,000 specimens a month performing over 4,000,000 tests a year.

14. Tested 840,000 total specimens (36,438 civ) Turn Around Time: Negative TAT: 2.49 days (mil) 0.13 days (3.14 h) (civ) Positive TAT: 6.01 days (mil) 2.78 days (civ) Total Workload FY05 We have mandated DOD turn around times are for negative urine sample of 4 days and 6 days for a positive urine sample. We exceed our TAT for positive in FY00 because of a 15% increase in the total number of positives mostly from active Army unit but also from higher absolute numbers from the NG as you sent us more samples. We have increased staff and recourses in FY01 and to date we are averaging 5 days for a positive specimen.We have mandated DOD turn around times are for negative urine sample of 4 days and 6 days for a positive urine sample.

15. STATISTICS TAT FY05 Positive- 3. 91 days Negative- 3.14 hrs Average- 4.32 hrs TAT FY06 Positive- 3.65 days Negative- 11.0 hrs Average- 12.1 hrs Discrepancy- 1.84 days

16. CHALLENGES Increased Workload- 36,000 FY05 to 87,000 FY06 DOI- NSA, NGA, WHS (29,100) Navy Civilians (31,000) DA Civilians (27,000) Increased Workload – 87,000 to 134,000 FY 07 ?? DOI (20,400) Air Force Civilians (23,732) Program not funded until FY04 Many LIMS menus were/are not compatible

17. CHALLENGES Different procedures Receiving Screening- validity testing GC-MS Methods MRO Review- Transition to Pembrooke Cut-offs Two separate drug testing programs within lab – Additional inspections (2 regulating agencies) Certifications Proficiencies Blind Specimens Training

18. STATISTICS Workload FY05 36,438 (3038/month) specimens 0.63 % rejected 1.43% positive rate Workload FY 06 2,900 (Dec) 5,631 (Jan) 0.44 % rejected Positive Rate Navy- 0.74% DOI- 0.30% Army- 0.36%

19. IMPACT Forced staffing changes 3rd shift Additional personnel requirements- overhired in most sections. Designated civilian testing teams Civilian Specimens priority over military Shifted Military Workload Improved Customer Service

20. SHORT-TERM OBJECTIVES Improve Customer Service Track forms and kits Increase volume of kits and forms available Improve feedback on Discrepancies Certify Dr Haak as additional RP (Dr Schatz vacancy) Expand Testing to Additional Agencies Solicit additional DoD customers

21. LONG-TERM OBJECTIVES Reorganize Laboratory into two separate divisions- military and civilian Staffing Reorganization Facility Renovations Certify Additional RP Comply with New Validity Testing Criteria Confirm Procedures Expand Adulterant Test Menu
