The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) supports the continuation of an ongoing specimen storage and management program for HIV seropositive and negative specimens received from subjects enrolled in NIAID-sponsored multi-site clinical and epidemiological studies.

The proposal submitted in response to this request may contain data (trade secrets; business data, e.g., commercial information, financial information, and cost and pricing data; and technical data) which the offeror, including its prospective subcontractor(s), does not want used or disclosed for any purpose other than for evaluation of the proposal. The use and disclosure of any data may be so restricted; provided, that the Government determines that the data is not required to be disclosed under the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552, as amended, and the offeror marks the cover sheet of the proposal with the following legend, specifying the particular portions of the proposal which are to be restricted in accordance with the conditions of the legend. The Government's determination to withhold or disclose a record will be based upon the particular circumstances involving the record in question and whether the record may be exempted from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act.

The proposal must be prepared in two parts: a "Technical Proposal" and a "Business Proposal." Each of
the parts shall be separate and complete in itself so that evaluation of one may be accomplished independently of, and concurrently with, evaluation of the other. The technical proposal must include direct cost and resources information, such as labor-hours and categories and applicable rates, materials, subcontracts, travel, etc., and associated costs so that the offeror's understanding of the project may be
evaluated (See Attachment entitled, TECHNICAL PROPOSAL COST SUMMARY). However, the technical proposal should not include pricing data relating to individual salary information, indirect cost rates or amounts, fee amounts (if any), and total costs. The technical proposal should disclose your technical approach in as much detail as possible, including, but not limited to, the requirements of the technical proposal instructions.

It is anticipated that one award will be made from this solicitation and that the award will be made on/about September 15, 2007.  It is anticipated that the award from this solicitation will be a multi-year cost reimbursement type contract completion form, with a period of performance of 7 (seven) years, and that incremental funding will be used. 

Any responsible Offeror may submit a proposal that will be considered by the Government, however, this notice does not commit the Government to the award of a contract.  No collect calls will be accepted.
