    In the interest of security, NIH has instituted stringent 
procedures for entrance onto the NIH campus. All visitor vehicles, 
including taxicabs, hotel, and airport shuttles will be inspected 
before being allowed on campus. Visitors will be asked to show one 
form of identification (for example, a government-issued photo ID, 
driver's license, or passport) and to state the purpose of their 
visit.
    Information is also available on the Institute's/Center's home 
page: http://oba.od.nih.gov/rdna/rdna.html, where an agenda and any 
additional information for the meeting will be posted when 
available.
    OMB's ``Mandatory Information Requirements for Federal 
Assistance Program Announcements'' (45 FR 39592, June 11, 1980) 
requires a statement concerning the official government programs 
contained in the Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance. Normally 
NIH lists in its announcements the number and title of affected 
individual programs for the guidance of the public. Because the 
guidance in this notice covers virtually every NIH and Federal 
research program in which DNA recombinant molecule techniques could 
be used, it has been determined not to be cost effective or in the 
public interest to attempt to list these

programs. Such a list would likely require several additional pages. 
In addition, NIH could not be certain that every Federal program 
would be included as many Federal agencies, as well as private 
organizations, both national and international, have elected to 
follow the NIH Guidelines. In lieu of the individual program 
listing, NIH invites readers to direct questions to the information 
address above about whether individual programs listed in the 
Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance are affected.

(Catalogue of Federal Domestic Assistance Program Nos. 93.14, 
Intramural Research Training Award; 93.22, Clinical Research Loan 
Repayment Program for Individuals from Disadvantaged Backgrounds; 
93.232, Loan Repayment Program for Research Generally; 93.39, 
Academic Research Enhancement Award; 93.936, NIH Acquired 
Immunodeficiency Syndrome Research Loan Repayment Program; 93.187, 
Undergraduate Scholarship Program for Individuals from Disadvantaged 
Backgrounds, National Institutes of Health, HHS)
