Last month, AHRQ issued a solicitation for proposals for multiple IDIQ/Task Order contracts through which individual Task Orders will be awarded to maintain, serve, and support the AHRQ National Resource Center for Health Information Technology.
Today, AHRQ announced that it has modified the ceiling amount for all contracts (including options) to $300 Million instead of the previously stated $75 Million. Individual ceiling amounts will be established for each base contract awarded based on the anticipated level of work required under each of the following four domain areas:
1. Support for HIT Program Management, Guidance, Assessment and Planning
2. HIT Technical Assistance, Content Development, Program Related Projects and Studies
3. HIT Dissemination, Communication and Marketing
4. HIT Portal Infrastructure Management and Website Design and Usability Support
In addition, AHRQ has extended the due date for receipt of proposals to February 26, 2009, at 12:00 PM EST. Also listed in the amended solicitation are responses to questions that have been received as a result of the Requests for Proposal. View the amended solicitation.
