RFP Notice: Receptor Profiling and Predictive Toxicology

Notice Number: NOT-DA-13-030

Key Dates
Release Date: November 2, 2012

Issued by
National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)


The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) intends to solicit proposals from qualified businesses or organization (NAICS Code 541711) with capabilities to perform in vitro receptor binding assays on a wide variety of receptor targets, and perform follow-up binding and functional assays using appropriate in vitro biological systems. In addition, an interested organization should have the capacity to perform in vitro predictive toxicology assays. The objective is to provide NIDA preclinical discovery programs with a way to screen compounds using a battery of sites that may be alternative mechanisms of action of candidate compounds, or predictive of toxicology. This will facilitate the discovery of novel structural ligands for specified biological targets in the search for medications for the treatment of drug dependence disorders.

Some of the requirements include:

We anticipate the award of one indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (task order) type contract for an ordering period of five years. NIDA anticipates that at least one task order will be awarded with the contract.

RFP No. N01DA-13-8909 will be available electronically on or about November 9, 2012. You will access the RFP through the FedBizOpps (URL: http://www.fbo.gov) or through the NIDA website: (URL: http://www.nida.nih.gov/RFP/RFPList.html). All information required for the submission of a proposal is contained in or accessible through the RFP package. Responses are due to be received in NIDA's Contracting Office about 60 days after we release the RFP. NIDA will consider proposals submitted by any responsible offeror. This advertisement does not commit the Government to award a contract.
