The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) awarded a task order against an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity Contract entitled AHRQ Planning Evaluation and Analysis. The successful offeror of this task order award was James Bell Associates, Inc. This task order was awarded in the amount of $2,209,935. This task order is to conduct a formative evaluation of grantee projects to accelerate the spread and use of CER findings to improve care quality, including providing timely, ongoing feedback to grantees in order to maximize their likelihood of success; conduct a summative evaluation to assess the level of success of individual grantee projects and to develop and implement a strategy to generate and spread actionable information to others in the nationwide health care community who are interested in promoting the spread of comparative effectiveness research (CER) findings and other evidence-based practices to improve the quality of care.



This project was competed on a cost reimbursement basis. There are many uncertainties involved in contract performance that did not permit costs to be estimated with sufficient accuracy to have issued a fixed-price task order.
