These cooperative agreements are also intended to expand participation in networks to enhance Federal, State, local, and tribal governmental food safety and security efforts. The goal of ORA's cooperative agreement program is to complement and improve State, local and Indian tribal governmental food safety and security testing programs. This will be accomplished through the provision of supplies, personnel, facility upgrades, training in current food testing methodologies,participation in proficiency testing to establish additional reliable laboratory sample analysis capacity, participation in method enhancement activities to extend analysis capability, and analysis of surveillance samples. In the event of a large-scale radiological terrorism event affecting foods or food products, the recipient may be required to perform selected radiological analyses of domestic and imported food samples collected and supplied to the laboratory by FDA or other Federal agencies through FDA.

At the discretion of the FDA, successful project formats will be made available to interested Federal, State, local and tribal government FERN laboratories . There are two key project areas identified for this effort: (1) The use of Gamma Spectrometry analysis for the screening and identification of gamma emitting radionuclides in foods; and (2) The use of Beta Spectrometry analysis for the screening and identification of beta emitting radionuclides in foods. FDA will support the projects covered by this notice under the authority of section 312 of the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002 (the Bioterrorism Act) (Public Law 107-188) .
