The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) plans to solicit proposals from qualified businesses to provide resources to support the Clinical Trials Network (CTN). The contract will provide data management and statistical analysis services in support of multi-site clinical trials conducted within the NIDA Clinical Trials Network (CTN). No actual clinical trials will be carried out under this contract.

The trial studies include behavior, pharmacological, and integrated therapies in Community-based Treatment Programs (CTPs). The range of support services encompasses the following areas:

1) establishing and administering systems for the collection, management and storage of study data;

2) designing and performing all statistical analyses;

3) reviewing and monitoring the quality of study data;

6) providing support for protocol development in the areas related to the tasks specified in the Statement of Work;

7) participating in relevant committee and subcommittee meetings and conference calls; and,

8) providing other expert consultation and support services as needed.

We anticipate the award of one cost reimbursement contract for a base period of three years. The contract will include two 1-year options plus additional options to cover an increase in the number of RRTCs in the network.
