This is a correction to the previously posted notice. The description of the task orders is changed to read as follows.



The Agency for Healthcare Research and Policy (AHRQ) intends to issue competitive task orders against an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity Contract for the Evidence Based Practice Centers. It is anticipated approximately 8 task orders will be awarded. The purpose of the task orders is to create a core group of Evidence Based Practice Centers to focus on a comprehensive approach to comparative effectiveness review (CER) and evidence synthesis. Awardees will 1) Develop and refine topics for CERs that are informative to stakeholder decisional needs; 2) Conduct CERs with systematic and transparent methods; and 3) Identify and explicate future research needs that are important to answering real-world healthcare decisions. The task orders are funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.



This opportunity is available to 10 contractors under the Evidence Based Practice Center multiple award contract which was previously competed and awarded in 2007.



This is not a request for competitive proposals, nor is a solicitation available. This notice is provided for informational purposes under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Program.
