The NIAID Division of Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (DMID) has a requirement to establish an Influenza Data Processing and Communication Center (iDPCC) in support of NIAID’s Centers of Excellence for Influenza Research and Response (CEIRR) Network.
The iDPCC would be a re-competition of the current Centers of Excellence for Influenza Research and Surveillance (CEIRS) Data Processing and Coordination Center (DPCC) contract # HHSN272201400026C, which was awarded in 2014 to Digital Infuzion.
The objectives of the DPCC original award were: data collection, management, and quality control; website development and access; study communication, collaboration, and reporting; training and technical assistance; and data tracking and reporting.
The iDPCC will maintain an emphasis on data processing, coordination, and reporting. The iDPCC will also include responsibilities to function as a central communication resource for the CEIRR Network and other NIAID Universal Influenza Vaccine programs and resources. These responsibilities will include extensive outreach to the broad scientific community to publicize NIAID’s influenza research programs and facilitate access to influenza reagents and resources generated by the programs.
All projects carried out under resultant contracts must be conducted in a manner consistent with all applicable Federal regulations and the DMID, NIAID, NIH and DHHS policies and guidelines for the conduct and oversight of research involving human subjects.
