THIS IS A SOURCES SOUGHT NOTICE to determine the availability and capability of small businesses (including certified 8(a), Small Disadvantaged, and HUBZone firms; veteran and service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses, and women-owned small businesses. This notice is for planning purposes only, and does not constitute an Invitation for Bids, a Request for Proposals, Solicitation, Request for Quotes, or an indication the Government will contract for the items contained herein. This notice is not to be construed as a commitment on the part of the Government to award a contract, nor does the Government intend to pay for any information submitted as a result of this notice. The Government does not reimburse respondents for any cost associated with submission of the information being requested or reimburse expenses incurred to interested parties for responses to this sources sought. Any responses received will not be used as a proposal. The National Institutes of Health (NIH), Clinical Center (CC) is seeking to identify any sources with capabilities or prior experience that can provide Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) training programs and accreditation. The government anticipates the award of a one year Firm Fixed Price Contract. The award shall not exceed 12 months. OBJECTIVE: NIH/CC/OPC Graduate medical education training programs and those institutions that sponsor medical or surgical training programs in a recognized specialty field, such as the NIH Clinical Center, are expected to achieve and maintain accreditation by the ACGME in order to permit training program graduates to be certified by the ABMS. It should be noted that those graduate medical education programs and sponsoring institutions that are not accredited by the ACGME are not recognized as providing the required training that permits physicians to be certified as medical or surgical specialists by the ABMS. Thus, physicians who complete specialty training in non-ACGME accredited programs, with rare exception, are not eligible for certification by the ABMS, and are not considered bona fide medical or surgical specialists by health care delivery organizations or academic medical centers throughout the United States. Finally, many states require completion of an ACGME-accredited training program before granting a license to practice medicine and surgery. Thus, accreditation of both individual graduate medical education programs, and the NIH Clinical Center as a sponsor of graduate medical education on the NIH campus, by the ACGME is essential for the NIH Clinical Center and the NIH to meet its mission of training highly competent (i.e., ABMS certified) and qualified physician-scientists and clinician-investigators in the recognized specialty fields of medicine or surgery.
