The National Institute on Drug Abuse is soliciting proposals from qualified 
organizations having the in-house capacity to perform experiments in 
laboratory animals to systematically evaluate the cardiovascular and 
toxicological effects of potential treatment drugs, both new and marketed, for 
treatment of drug abuse.  Specifically, treatment drugs for two classes of 
drugs of abuse (stimulants and opiates) will be investigated pre-clinically. 
Due to the nature of the compounds which may be evaluated, it is mandatory 
that offerors possess a DEA Research Registration for Schedules II to V in 
order to handle substances under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970, and 
demonstrate the capability to obtain a DEA registration for Schedule I 
controlled substances. Further, all offerors must be in compliance with the 
NIH guidelines on the care and use of laboratory animals and, the laboratory 
must be operated according to the FDA’s Good Laboratory Practices Program.  It 
is estimated that a five-year incrementally funded level of effort type 
contract will result from this procurement.  The project will include options 
for additional effort to cover additional testing. RFP No. N01DA-0-8805 will 
be available electronically on or about March 27, 2000, and may be accessed
