The Surveillance Research Program (SRP) within the Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences (DCCPS) and the Prevention, Control and Population Sciences Branch (PCPSB) within the Office of Acquisitions (OA), National Cancer Institute, National Institutes of Health, intends to solicit the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program.

The Product Service Code (PSC) is AN11 - Research and Development. The North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code is 541712 - Research and Development in the Physical, Engineering, and Life Sciences (except Biotechnology). NCI anticipates awarding multiple Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts to Offerors capable of performing all aspects of the work described in the Base Statement of Work (SOW) and meeting the mandatory criteria stated therein. The current SEER Base contracts expire on July 31, 2017 and the final Core Infrastructure Task Orders expire on April 30, 2018. It is anticipated that contracts will be awarded on or around May 1, 2018, for a period of performance of 10 years.

The purpose of this acquisition is to obtain the services of population-based central cancer registries to collect and report on population-based cancer incidence, treatment, and survival data. The SEER Program is the NCI’s major resource for measuring changes in incidence, morbidity, and mortality associated with cancer. The SEER Program serves three major thrusts of the NCI: cancer control, treatment, and epidemiology. The SEER Program was established in 1973 in response to the National Cancer Act of 1971, which mandated that NCI collect, analyze, and disseminate all data useful in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer (Public Law 92-218),
