National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders


The National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders

(NIDCD), National Institutes of Health, has a requirement to continue

and further develop the NIDCD Hereditary Hearing Impairment Resource

Registry, which serves as a national resource for the biomedical

research community engaged in the study of the genetics of hereditary

hearing impairment.  The Contractor will continue the direct

enlistment of individuals and families in whom hearing impairment

appears and who are willing to participate in genetic studies related

to the etiology of auditory impairments.  The Contractor will

continue to contact health care providers (e.g., otolaryngologists,

audiologists) who are in contact with individuals with hearing

impairment, to enlist their assistance in providing information

regarding enrollment and participation in the Registry to their

patients.  The Contractor will continue the collection and

maintenance of clinical information on participants; including

specified medical, audiological, demographic, and epidemiological

variables.  In addition, the Contractor will continue to encourage

the pursuit of research on the genetic bases of hereditary hearing

impairment by disseminating pertinent information to primary care

physicians, otolaryngologists, audiologists, medical and molecular

geneticists, and other biomedical scientists and health care

professionals.  Collaboration in the study of hereditary hearing

impairment will be encouraged and facilitated.  This acquisition is

the recompetition of contract number N01-DC-3-2134, currently being

performed by Father Flanagan's Boys' Home.  A three-year

cost-reimbursement type contract is anticipated.  The solicitation is

scheduled to be issued on or about August 16, 1996.  Proposals will

be due 45 days after the date of issuance of the solicitation.  All

responsible sources may submit a proposal that will be considered by

the Government.




Copies of the solicitation can be obtained by sending a written

request to:
