Government in Need of Support for Pediatric MRI Data Collection

National Institute of Health to issue one-year contract to Individual or Organization

Bethesda, Maryland, Jan. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Emotion and Development Branch (EDB) is currently seeking a contractor for a one-year period to collect structural and functional MRI data. This work supports the mission of the EDB to study the pathophysiology, development, and treatment of pediatric mood and anxiety disorders. To be considered for the contract, eligible organizations or individuals must submit all required materials by February 8, 2018.

Contracting Officer Jeffery Brown will be judging a variety of factors when judging proposals for the work. Paramount is the proposed technical approach for the collection of vital data on pathophysiology and treatment. Key personnel, whether an individual or a group, must be pursuing Ph.D. in neuroscience or psychology, currently working within a university or scientific organization possessing a wealth of experience in MRI and demonstrated experience working with biomedical staff. Past performance history should contain at least two examples which demonstrate relevant knowledge and experience. The final criterion is of course the offered price for this service.

Complete details for the solicitation may be found on the website where the government posts federal business opportunities, or with more comprehensive systems such as the Advanced Procurement Portal (APP). APP provides a consolidated source of information for managing all the data to find and acquire the contract.

US Federal Contractor Registration (USFCR) is the world’s largest third-party government registration firm pioneered the Advanced Procurement Portal. USFCR not only registers companies on their behalf in the government's mandatory System for Award Management (SAM), but also helps entities make effective offers to the government. APP provides active and historical federal business opportunity information as well as a list of active federal buyers and vendors. The synthesis of this data will allow businesses, organizations or individuals to dedicate their complete effort toward performance on the contract instead of the acquisition of it.  APP also includes a built-in Learning Center designed by industry professionals so that newcomers to the federal sector can efficiently locate opportunities, effectively bid on them and form a strategic plan for lasting success.
