Introduction: "This is a Sources Sought Notice. This is NOT a solicitation for proposals, proposal abstracts, or quotations. The purpose of this notice is to obtain information regarding the availability and capability of all qualified sources to perform a potential requirement.
GRASP, the Geospatial Research, Analysis, and Services Program (Division of Toxicology and Human Health Sciences (DTHHS), ATSDR) is a program that provides ongoing GIS (geographic information system) science and technology support to Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry (ATSDR), National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH), Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response (OPHPR), and multiple other CIOs across CDC/ATSDR. The mission of GRASP is to provide leadership and expertise in the application of the concepts, methods, and tools of geography and geospatial information science to public health research and practice across CDC/ATSDR and among the public health community. GRASP objectives are to (1) research and analyze the geospatial trends and patterns relevant to diverse factors associated with environmental health, infectious and chronic disease, and emergency preparedness & response, (2) geospatially enable CDC/ATSDR scientists and systems with data, consulting, technology, and training, (3) collaborate with scientists and researchers at the CDC/ATSDR and among our public health partners to address diverse public health issues, (4) contribute to a vibrant geospatial community among public health professionals, and (5) embrace, leverage and promote technology.
GRASP has grown and diversified to include 50+ staff (FTE/CONTRACT) with expertise in geography, GIS analysis, cartography, geospatial statistics, computer science, remote sensing, epidemiology, emergency preparedness & response, and demography. GRASP is highly collaborative and promotes the integration of geography and geospatial science into public health, focuses on training and education, and emphasizes the importance of effective use of GIS technology to work with CDC/ATSDR and beyond to prevent disease, prolong life, and promote health. GRASP scientists work extensively with partners across the CDC/ATSDR and among the broader public health community. For example, GRASP worked with NCEH/Health Community Design Initiative to develop refined measures for the built-environment that were subsequently shared on the Environmental Public Health Tracking Portal (Dec 2012).
GRASP collaborated with the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) to better understand time and distance barriers to access cancer screening and treatment (2009 - Present). Additionally, GRASP has worked with the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) to design and build the NCHHSTP Atlas, the first web-based visualization tool ever released by the CDC to visualize state and county NCHHSTP surveillance data (released Jan 2011), and has worked with the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD)/Influenza Division to enhance mapping that is integrated into routine influenza surveillance (2009 - Present). GRASP worked with Healthy People 2020 to develop a baseline metric for the Healthy People 2020 school siting measure (Dec 2010), and has integrated and supported mapping directly into CDC WONDER (2003- Present). In addition, since 2003, GRASP has provided all GIS technology and analytic support to the CDC Emergency Operations Center ("EOC"), which enables the CDC to prepare for and respond to public health emergencies and events of all kinds.
Purpose and Objectives. The purpose of the GRASP Geospatial Science, Technology, and Visualization IDIQ contract is to provide contractor support to complete geospatial science, technology, and visualization tasks that range from limited consultations to large, multi-year efforts requiring several contractors to complete. For example, a GIS technology task supported by this IDIQ contract may be require a full contract team for a period of 1 year to design, develop, test, and release an interactive atlas requiring extensive expertise in systems integration, design, application development, database programming, and coordination. Another example task supported by this contractor may require a single contractor for a period of 6 months to design and automate a set of GIS map templates which will be used by GRASP staff in a repeated manner. Another example task supported by this contract may require a single contractor for a period of 1 year to analyze GIS health care access data and draft a manuscript outlining analysis conclusions and recommendations for further study.
