National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), NIH

has a requirement for a number of contractors to provide a variety of

assays and services in support of preclinical AIDS vaccine research and

development.  The purpose of this program is to provide resources to

the NIAID in its mission to stimulate research towards discovery and

testing of prototype vaccines for Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome

(AIDS).  The NIAID requires virological, immunological, molecular

biological assays and services, evaluation of candidate vaccines in

animals and the GMP or GLP production of quantities of candidate

vaccines sufficient for Phase I/II human clinical trials.  This effort

will support the research of AIDS investigators, including three SIV

Vaccine Evaluation Groups (NCVDG), the AIDS Vaccine Evaluation Group

(AVEG), the NIAID AIDS Vaccine Working Group, and other programs

initiated by NIAID.

This is an announcement for an anticipated Master Agreement

Announcement Request for Proposals (RFP).  The issuance of RFP No.

NIAID-DAIDS-94-20 will be on or about August 2, 1993, and proposals

will be due by the close of business on November 15, 1993.  It is

anticipated that multiple Master Agreements will be awarded as a result

of this solicitation.  It is expected that the Master Agreements will

be awarded for five-year terms, with no funding until the subsequent

solicitation and award of Master Agreement Orders for specific tasks.

The Master Agreement Orders are anticipated to be completion-type,

cost-reimbursement contracts.
