This is a notice of intent to award a sole-source purchase order and is not a request for competitive proposals. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), EITPO hereby announces its intent to solicit and enter into a contract with RTI International, SUDAAN Statistical Software Center, 3040 Cornwallis Road, P.O. Box 12194, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709-2194 for the procurement of a yearly maintenance renewal agreement for 577 statistical software licenses for CDC personnel to conduct statistical analysis on public health data.

The statutory authority permitting other than full and open competition is 41 U.S.C. 253(c)(1) as cited in FAR 13.106-1(b)(1)(i). SUDAAN is a software product designed and developed by RTI statisticians for analyzing clustered data arising in many applications, including complex sample surveys, randomized experiments and epidemiological studies. SUDAAN offers procedures for descriptive statistics and for statistical modeling. The modeling procedures include both linear and multinomial-logistic models and a procedure for fitting proportional hazards (Cox) regression models for time-to-event data. Due to the sensitive nature of the statistical software, RTI is the only source that provides statistical software license support based on the data collection and studies of a senstive nature which ensures integrity in meeting the critical needs of the CDC mission. No other vendor is authorized to sell this software license due to its proprietary nature. RTI International has been the sole provider authorized to sell SUDAAN Statistical Software products.
