The Food and Drug Administration wants to create an indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract for operating and modernizing its Safety Reporting Portal (SRP).
The FDA SRP Acquisition Life Cycle Support IDIQ includes handling current operations as well as designing and developing its modernization, testing, implementing, and integrating the hardware, software, data, network, and security.
The IDIQ will have four task areas:
- Operations and maintenance
- Development and modernization
- Program and project management
- Transition activities
The FDA uses the SPR as a public-facing web application used to collect data related to adverse health events and problems connected with specific FDA-regulated projects.
The FDA’s overall objective is procuring application life cycle management support and continuity of services for SRP.
The FDA released the request for information June 7. Reponses are due by June 15.
