Briefs: FDA seeks keyword software

The software will be used for the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition's Adverse Event Reporting System, a surveillance system that brings together adverse event reports and consumer complaints into one database. Additional information can be found on, solicitation no. reference-number-RFI-0001. Responses are due by March 11.
