The Respiratory Diseases Branch and Enteric Diseases Branch, Division

of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases, National Institute of

Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) have a requirement for

several Vaccine and Treatment Evaluation Units (VTEU).  These VTEUs

will conduct Phase I and Phase II clinical trials to evaluate

candidate vaccines and other prophylactic/therapeutic measures for

infectious diseases other than AIDS.  A VTEU provides volunteer

populations, staff, facilities, and expertise to carry out such work,

which includes follow-up and focused epidemiologic-based studies.  A

variety of vaccine types (live, attenuated, inactivated, subunit,

conjugated) for prevention of viral and bacterial illnesses are

expected.  Optional Contract Activities (i.e. they are optional for

the Government to support) include the conduct of expanded Phase II

and Phase IV vaccine clinical trials.

Request for Proposals (RFP) NIH-NIAID-DMID-94-29 will be available on

or about December 20, 1993, and proposals will be due at close of

business March 1, 1994.  It is anticipated that four to six cost-

reimbursement, level-of-effort type contracts will be awarded for a

period of seven years.  Optional Contract Activities will be

accomplished under conditions of cost-reimbursement, completion type

contracts.  Any responsible offeror may submit a proposal that will

be considered by the Government.
