Goal ID Original Goal Statement as
stated in FY 06 Congressional Justification
Disposition Revised FY 2006 Targets Explanation

Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition

11001 Provide premarket reviews within statutory time frames to assure the safety of food ingredients, bioengineered foods and dietary supplements. Measure:  Complete review and action on the safety evaluation of 75% of food and color additive petitions within 360 days of receipt Revised Complete review and action on the safety evaluation of 70% of food and color additive petitions within 360 days of receipt Target reduced due to strategic redeployement of resources to highest priority areas.
11010 Increase risk management strategies and communication to government, industry and consumers in order to ensure the safety of the nation's food supply.  Measure:  Increase the percentage of the U.S. population that will live in states that have adopted the Food Code to 49 States/ 84% Unchanged    
11040  Perform prior notice import security reviews on 38,000 food and animal feed line entries considered to be at high risk for bioterrorism and/or present the potential of a significant health risk.  Revised The target has been revised upward now that ORA has a complete year of experience in conducting prior notice activities.  
11036 Perform 60,000 import food field exams on products with suspect histories. Revised Perform 73,376 import food field exams on products with suspect histories.  We have observed increased numbers of import food field exams in FY 2005 and expect that attrition will not be reflected until FY 2007.  It is possible that more field exams are being performed in FY 2005 because travel funds are not available to fund inspections and other activities.  The lack of travel funds will play a role in the FY 2006 activities.
19015 Perform at least 1,000 Filer Evaluations under new procedures.  Revised Perform 965 Filer Evaluations of Import Filers. The target has been reduced to reflect the impact of the 2005 natural disasters in the Southeastern U.S. on FDA operations.
19016 Conduct 2,000 examinations of FDA refused entries as they are delivered for exportation to ensure that the articles refused by FDA are being exported. Revised Conduct 2,992 examinations of FDA refused entries as they are delivered for exportation to ensure that the articles refused by FDA are being exported. The target was increased because in FY 2004, the first year of performance under this goal, the actual performance was higher than originally estimated.
11020 Conduct postmarket monitoring, food surveillance, inspection, and enforcement activities to reduce health risks associated with food, cosmetics and dietary supplements products.  Measure:  Inspect 95% of estimated 6,800 high-risk domestic food establishments once every year. Revised

Conduct postmarket monitoring, food surveillance, inspection, and enforcement activities to reduce health risks associated with food, cosmetics and dietary supplements products. 

Measure: Inspect 5,963 high-risk domestic food establishments.

The target has been reduced to reflect the impact of the 2005 natural disasters in the Southeastern U.S. on FDA operations.
19013 Expand federal/state/local involvement in FDA's eLEXNET system by having 105 laboratories submit data in the system.  Unchanged    
11041

Measure:  Decrease the average FDA time to approval or tentative approval for the fastest 70% of original generic drugs applications by 0.5 months. Revised Measure:  Decrease the average FDA time to approval or tentative approval for the fastest 25% of original generic drugs applications by 0.5 months. Target reduced due to strategic redeployement of resources to highest priority areas.
12048 Improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the over-the-counter (OTC) drug review program to ensure a safe and effective drug supply is available.  Measure:  Complete review and action on 100% of Rx-to-OTC Switch applications within 10 months of receipt.  Make significant progress on completing 6 OTC monographs. Unchanged    
12045 Enhance the protection of the American public against the effects of terrorist agents by facilitating the development of and access to medical countermeasures, providing follow-up assessments on therapies, and engaging in emergency preparedness and response activities.  Measure:  Coordinate and facilitate development for at least 6 medical countermeasures. Unchanged    
12007 Improve the Safe Use of Drugs in Patients and Consumers.  Measure:  Review and provide comments on 100% of Risk Minimization Action Plans (RiskMAPs) for NMEs and for those products for which the sponsor or FDA initiated discussions, in accordance with applicable PDUFA goal dates. Revised Measure:  Standardize Agency processes and criteria for communicating risk information to patients and healthcare providers. Targets are being incrementally revised to bring the goal closer to an outcome goal.
12020 Increase risk-based compliance and enforcement activities to ensure product quality.  Measure:  Inspect 65% of the establishments identified as high-risk. Revised

Increase risk-based compliance and enforcement activities to ensure drug product quality. 

Measure:  The number of inspections conducted of domestic establishments identified as high-risk human drug manufacturers.

Given the fluctuation in the inventory, the inspection resources available, and the risk-based prioritization approach that FDA is developing, we believe that it is more appropriate to state the goal in terms of the number of inspections of the highest-risk establishments.
