National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA)

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) plans to solicit proposals 
from qualified organizations having in-house capability to support the 
operations of the Cocaine Treatment Discovery Program (CTDP) by 
performing compound identification and evaluation.  In order to 
facilitate the development of pharmacotherapies for cocaine and 
methamphetamine dependence, the NIDA CTDP requires the identification 
and scientific evaluation of the merits of selected novel synthetic 
compounds as potential treatment entities for cocaine and 
methamphetamine dependence.  It is envisioned that compound
sources will be found in pharmaceutical company, commercial, academic, 
as well as other federal laboratory scientific literature. In addition, 
the contractor may be asked to provide additional searches and reports 
from the scientific literature based on other compounds identified.  
The goal of the effort will be to encourage the rapid and efficient 
study of various classes of compounds for development as potential 
pharmacotherapies for drug abuse.  

It is estimated that a three year incrementally funded level of effort 
type contract will result from this procurement with options for two 
extra years and additional quantities.
