HRSA Seeks Sources

A notice published on February 26, 2008 by HRSA seeks sources to implement a Traumatic Brain Injury Resource and Technical Assistance Center. Presently, the Federal Traumatic Brain Injury Program helps individuals succeed in their recovery and rehabilitation from TBI by assisting states in providing care that is accessible, connected, affordable, and community-based. The TBI Resource and Technical Assistance Center will serve all the grantees of the Federal Traumatic Brain Injury Program as well as provide information on TBI to members of the public.

The Federal TBI program awards State Infrastructure (Partnership) Grants and Protection and Advocacy Grants. Grantees from these programs need ongoing information and assistance with resource development and all of the factors specifically affecting the TBI community. In addition, the grantees need to be able to benefit from distance education efforts and from regional and national meetings. Previously these services were provided by the National Association of State Head Injury Administrators.

HRSA is looking for sources within the small business community that are familiar with many of the issues surrounding traumatic brain injuries. Specific capabilities are needed to develop databases for information collection, to track technical assistance and information, develop an interactive listserv, develop a web site for grantees and the public, address grantee training needs, identify funding opportunities for grantees, and be knowledgeable about product development.

This notice is for planning purposes only and does not constitute an Invitation for Bid, an RFP, or an RFQ, and therefore the government is not required to award a contract.
Responses to this notice must be received by March 12, 2008.
