Food Animal Residue Avoidance Databank

The purpose of the FARAD is to provide livestock producers, extension specialists, scientists, and veterinarians with up to date information to prevent drug, pesticide and environmental contaminant residues in food animal products.

Collaboration between all institutions occurs on research
projects that are necessary to validate the FARAD withdrawal interval estimates.

Uses and Use Restrictions

The Food Animal Residue Avoidance Databank (FARAD) is a NIFA funding opportunity for the production of safe foods of animal origin through the development and dissemination of expert-mediated resources supporting prevention and mitigation of violative chemical (drug, pesticide, natural toxins, and environmental contaminant) residues in food animal products. The major roles of each FARAD Center: Kansas State University (KSU) - Develop pharmacokinetic modeling approaches and provide pharmacokinetic support to FARAD centers.

In addition, develop an interface that links the developed models (physiologically-based PK models) with drug residue cases managed by responders at UCD and NCSU. The University of California (UCD) ? Maintain the pharmacokinetic, bibliographic and call center databases and web-based access to the kinetic and bibliographic citation files.

On a rotating basis with NCSU also provides responses to drug and contaminant residue questions submitted to FARAD. The University of Florida (UFL)- Collect and enter data for the US Approved Animal Drugs Database (US-AADD), maintains internet websites for FARAD, creates and supports platforms for mobile devices to access the Veterinarian's Guide to Residue Avoidance Management (VetGRAM) and other mobile-friendly applications, and distributes electronic alerts and updates via email, Twitter and other electronic formats. North Carolina State University (NCSU) ? Develop pharmacokinetic modeling approaches and provide pharmacokinetic support to FARAD centers.

In addition, develop an interface that links the developed Population PK models with drug residue cases managed by responders at UCD and NCSU.

On a rotating schedule with UCD, provide responses to emergency queries (telephone, internet) from the FARAD Hotline.

NCSU will work with a veterinary clinical pharmacologist provide veterinary clinical pharmacology technical support to responders at NCSU and UCD for drug residue cases submitted to FARAD and oversea that appropriate PK models are utilized to resolve FARAD cases submitted to NCSU and UCD response centers. Collaboration between all institutions occurs on research projects that are necessary to validate the FARAD withdrawal interval estimates.

Credentials/Documentation

The System for Award Management (SAM) combines eight federal procurement systems, including CCR, and the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance into one new system. CCR activities are conducted through SAM (the CCR website will redirect users to SAM). Dun and Bradstreet Universal Numbering System (DUNS) Number and System for Award Management (SAM): Each applicant (unless excepted under 2 CFR § 25.110(b) or (c), or has an exception approved by the Federal awarding agency under 2 CFR § 25.110(d)) is required to: (i) Be registered in SAM before submitting its application; (ii) Provide a valid DUNS number in its application; and (iii) Continue to maintain an active SAM registration with current information at all times during which it has an active Federal award or an application or plan under consideration by a Federal awarding agency. It also must state that the Federal awarding agency may not make a Federal award to an applicant until the applicant has complied with all applicable DUNS and SAM requirements and, if an applicant has not fully complied with the requirements by the time the Federal awarding agency is ready to make a Federal award, the Federal awarding agency may determine that the applicant is not qualified to receive a Federal award and use that determination as a basis for making a Federal award to another applicant. Applicants must furnish the information required in the Request for Applications (RFAs). Successful applicants recommended for funding must furnish the information and assurances requested during the award documentation process. These include, but are not limited to the following: Organizational Management Information - Specific management information relating to an applicant shall be submitted on a one time basis, with updates on an as needed basis, as part of the responsibility determination prior to the award of a grant identified under this RFA, if such information has not been provided previously under this or another NIFA program. NIFA will provide copies of forms recommended for use in fulfilling these requirements as part of the preaward process. Although an applicant may be eligible based on its status as one of these entities, there are factors which may exclude an applicant from receiving Federal financial and nonfinancial assistance and benefits under this program (e.g., debarment or suspension of an individual involved or a determination that an applicant is not responsible based on submitted organizational management information). This information collection is approved under OMB Circular Control No. 0524-0026, ?Assurance of Compliance with the Department of Agriculture Regulations Assuring Civil Rights, Compliance and Organization Information.?
