WASHINGTON, DC: The National Institute of Health’s Institute for

Neurological Disorders and Strokes has awarded a five-year, dollars 8.2

million contract to Ogilvy’s DC office.



While few details were available at press time, the agency has

reportedly been charged with developing public education and outreach

campaigns on strokes and Parkinson’s disease.



Coupled with the firm recently winning ’preferred vendor’ status from

the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (PRWeek, Sept. 1) and

other recent wins, Ogilvy’s potential revenue base in DC could reach

dollars 58.2 million over the next five years.



’These wins increase our need to add staff,’ said Tom Beall, Ogilvy MD

and co-head of the agency’s health and medical practice. ’We’ve

witnessed tremendous growth over the last few years and expect that will

continue.’



The CDC ’preferred vendor’ status is essential for being able to

participate in bids for CDC communications projects. The first round of

contracts (23 RFPs were issued earlier in the summer) will be awarded

later in the month.
