According to Anthony Revenis, NIH contract specialist, changes to the RFP are being made 'due to suggestions made and questions raised both inside NIH and by PR agencies.'

The size of the account is so large that more than 350 firms have already expressed interest in winning a portion of the business. There could be about two dozen firms taking home a piece of the pie.

Revenis said that NIH would like to hire a wide range of firms - from generalist to specialists - to provide NIH with a range of professional services that runs from public relations, social marketing research, editorial support for publications to Web work. He added that working with minorities would be valuable.
