Start Preamble


Food and Drug Administration, HHS.




The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is providing notice of a memorandum of understanding (MOU) between the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) (collectively the Parties or individually a Party). The purpose of this MOU is to set forth an agreement between GSA and FDA regarding the roles, responsibilities, and financial commitments of each Party relating to FDA's agreement to coordinate, with GSA and its contractors, removal of a mercury-contaminated laboratory waste plumbing system; and GSA's agreement to coordinate, with FDA and its contractors, its scheduled hazmat removal and demolition work at Federal Office Building 8. It is the Parties' mutual desire to accomplish both actions in such a manner that controls and reduces the overall cost to the taxpayer.


The agreement became effective January 9, 2006.
