The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Office of Readiness and Response has released a pre-solicitation notice about an upcoming call for proposals. It is aims to procure services to establish ten regional coordinating bodies of health departments and officials, health care facilities, health care coalitions, and academic, public, and private partners.
The solicitation will be limited to institutions of higher education, including accredited schools of public health, or other nonprofit private entities with at least 10 years of experience working with the public health emergency preparedness and response evidence base and coordinating at the regional level. The Government will release the solicitation, including any subsequent amendments, on the SAM.gov website. The Government anticipates the solicitation will be available approximately 30 to 45 days from the date of the notice (May 8, 2023), with an anticipated closing date/proposal due date of at least 30 days from the date of release of the solicitation.
All questions related to the pre-solicitation should be submitted by email to Eric Lyons, [email protected]. Questions will not be accepted by phone. The Office of Applied Research and other CDC staff cannot address questions.
