This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Notice of availability.
Send all inquiries concerning this notice in writing to Beverly Ashton, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Immunization Program, 1600 Clifton Road, Mailstop E62, Atlanta, Georgia 30333.
The National Immunization Program (NIP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), has developed a software component that can examine an individual's immunization history and determine which specific immunizations the individual needs as of any specified date, according to the recommendations of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices. The component is written in the C++ programming language and is exposed as an ActiveX object.
The NIP would like to make this component available to developers of immunization registry software and other applications that have immunization management functions. NIP would like to establish a mechanism which would allow a software vendor or vendors to provide technical maintenance and support for the component. One possibility would be for NIP to post a list of interested vendors (including their addresses and telephone numbers) on the NIP/Registry website (www.CDC.gov/NIP/Registry). Developers who want to implement the component in their systems would then contract with the vendor of their choice, independently, to obtain technical support.
Vendor support would consist of:
Assistance with the installation of the component.
Assistance with day-to-day operational problems.
Correction of software bugs.
Update of parameterized rules to implement new ACIP recommendations.
Enhancements of the component's functionality.
NIP will make the component available to the vendor free of charge, and the vendor will marshal the resources necessary to provide the support to developers, under contracts negotiated between the vendor and the individual developer. CDC will not be a party to these contracts.
Vendors should describe their experience and available resources in providing this kind of software support. Vendors interested in this opportunity with NIP should write to: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Attn: Beverly Ashton, National Immunization Program, Mail Stop E-62, 1600 Clifton Road, Atlanta, GA 30333.Start Signature
