Does salary requirement have to be in its own document?

A job ad says: "To apply for this opportunity, please submit a cover letter, salary requirements and resume online to [EMPLOYER]. [EMPLOYER] must receive all information requested in order to consider your candidacy. Could they possibly be expecting the salary requirement to be in its own document? Or can it be included in the cover letter? I am concerned about getting immediately screened out if I don't have a separate salary document.

My cup runneth over

I am a web developer, and was working for 9 mos for a large corporation as an outside contractor paid through an agency. Good company, great job and better still, they hired me a month ago as a full time employee, with benefits, corner office--all the trimmings. The Employee handbook says new hires get to fill a cup with their urine since its a "drug free workplace" but rehires don't. After that an existing employee can only be (re)tested for just cause. In short: I was given a job offer and I accepted. I went through orientation a leisurely 3 weeks and 1.5 paychecks later, but its now been a month and they still haven't asked me to fill the cup. My urine would be clean as of today. When can I safely assume the time to appropriately ask me to fill the cup has expired? I really miss burning the rope...
