2. Report the date that the agency first became aware of this diagnosis as communicated by the employee.
 
3. On a separate correspondence from the FROI, report the outside activities that the employee participates in that may impact the diagnosis. Provide the names and phone numbers of people who have firsthand knowledge of the employee’s outside activities.
