ACMG is issuing two requests for proposals (RFPs):
- Enhance and maintain the NBSTRN website as well as develop and maintain the NBS Research Repository
- Enhance and maintain the Longitudinal Pediatric Data Resource and Genomics Warehouse (LPDR)
Through two consecutive five-year contracts, the ACMG has led the development and implementation of a key component of the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Hunter Kelly NBS Research Program, the NBS Translational Research Network (NBSTRN).
The NBSTRN began as an effort to engage a variety of stakeholders across the NBS system and has matured into a dynamic and committed network comprised of researchers, public health professionals and clinicians. In September 2018 ACMG was awarded a one-year contract as a base plus four option years to continue the NBSTRN. The NBSTRN contract outlines a series of resources, information technology tools, and expert workgroups to be maintained and enhanced by ACMG.

NBSTRN Website and NBS Research Repository
The first RFP is intended to solicit proposals to subcontract the enhancement and maintenance of the NBSTRN Website, and development and maintenance of the NBS Research Repository. The NBSTRN Website serves as a centralized online presence for NBSTRN that highlights the tools and resources available to NBS researchers and related stakeholders.
NBSTRN Longitudinal Pediatric Data Resource and Genomics Warehouse (LPDR)
The second RFP is intended to solicit proposals to subcontract portions of the enhancement and maintenance of the NBSTRN Longitudinal Pediatric Data Resource and Genomics Warehouse (LPDR https://nbstrn.org/research-tools/longitudinal-pediatric-data-resource). The RFP will focus on enabling the upload, analysis, transfer, and display of genomic and associated phenotypic data.
