The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the major operating components of the Department of Health and Human Services and works to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S.
Biosecurity-related organizations and divisions operating under the CDC include:
The CDC uses grants and cooperative agreements to fund research and non-research public health programs that advance the Agency’s public health mission domestically and abroad to keep Americans safe and healthy. Each year, CDC awards approximately 4,200 grants and cooperative agreements. This generates approximately 11,000 actions and obligates approximately $5.0 billion in federal funds.
CDC uses contracts to purchase goods and services such as supplies, vaccines, Information Technology, and equipment. CDC processes more than 13,000 contracts each year, obligating approximately $5.0 billion in federal funds annually.
