The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) intends to solicit proposals from offerors through Full and Open Competition procedures.

Health care clinicians are in a unique position to identify substance use disorders in their patients and refer them to treatment, yet they receive little training on drug abuse prevention, early intervention, and treatment options. NIDA seeks to address this gap in knowledge and the resulting lack of intervention taking place in medical practices through the establishment of a coalition of professional medical organizations and associations to:

1. Advise NIDA on the educational preferences and needs of health care providers, including primary care and specialist physicians, pediatricians, psychiatrists, dentists, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, and others;
2. Serve as content experts in developing new materials, including a Continuing Medical Education/Continuing Education (CME/CE) designed specifically for clinicians who treat America's 24 million adolescents; and
3. Function as the dissemination infrastructure for current and new NIDAMED materials.


Together these activities build on the NIDAMED initiative and broaden it to more fully include the diverse population of health care providers and the at-risk patients they treat.


NIDA intends to solicit proposals from offerors having the capability to perform the following four tasks:


Task 1: Establish a Coalition of Professional Health Care Organizations and Associations.


The Contractor must establish a Coalition of Professional Health Care Organizations and Associations (Coalition) that have large, national reach and highly respected reputations to serve as the infrastructure for NIDAMED dissemination and as the content experts for newly developed materials. The Coalition must be comprised of/represent clinicians, such as primary care and specialist physicians, pediatricians, psychiatrists, dentists, pharmacists, physician assistants, nurses, and nurse practitioners. The Coalition also must include the participation of experts on adolescent drug use screening, brief intervention, and referral to treatment (SBIRT) to advise the Coalition.


Task 2: Conduct Formative Research, Develop, and Obtain Accreditation for an Adolescent Drug Use Prevention/Early Intervention Continuing Medical Education/Continuing Education (CME/CE).


Task 3: Market and Disseminate all NIDAMED Products [current and the newly-developed Adolescent Drug Use Prevention/Early Intervention CME/CE (Task 2)].


Task 4: Measure Outreach Methods and NIDAMED Materials/Tools Usage.
NIDA has set the goal for the CME/CE created in Task 2 for a minimum of 28,000 health care clinicians to complete the CME/CE course (Task 2) over 5 years.


NIDA anticipates the award of a single, 1 year base contract with 4 option years. NIDA anticipates the contract will include option quantities for level-of-effort hours, and NIDA anticipates the contract will be cost reimbursement and severable. The earliest RFP No. N01DA-14-1152 would be available is January 6, 2014. You will be able to access the RFP through the FedBizOpps (URL: http://www.fedbizopps.gov or through the NIDA website at the following address: (URL: http://www.drugabuse.gov/funding/funding-opportunities/nida-requests-contract-proposals-rfps).
