NIAID to Develop Data Center

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) within NIH supports research to develop vaccines, therapeutics, medical devices, and medical diagnostics for the prevention, treatment, and diagnosis of infectious and immune-mediated diseases.

The NIAID Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (DMID) on October 28, 2013 issued a presolicitation notice as a total small business set-aside with the plan to develop a Statistical and Data Coordinating Center (SDCC) for Clinical Research in Infectious Diseases. DMID is working to evaluate new and improved vaccines and devices and therapeutic candidates in clinical trials and studies. NIAID is currently looking to establish and manage the SDCC.

Information is greatly needed on how to design computerized systems, store the information, how to best report and control the quality on data studies, assist in the preparation of study-related materials, develop a system to track clinical specimens, perform data collection and management activities, provide user training, and provide a data repository for the completed DMID-sponsored clinical studies.

NIAID intends to post the Request for Proposal on November 18, 2013 and will be available through The primary point of contact is Frank M. Vidergar at or phone (301) 402-1490.
