Grants to USA individuals at private organizations, academic institutions, and government laboratories for biomedical research projects addressing issues related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) disease or the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Applicants must submit a preliminary paper prior to applying.

Contracts Management & Acquisition (CMA)on behalf of the Office of Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) solicits proposals for the advanced research and development of medical countermeasures (MCM) for chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) agents, pandemic influenza, and emerging infectious diseases that threaten the U.S. civilian population. BARDA anticipates that R&D activities awarded under this BAA will serve to advance candidate medical countermeasures towards licensure or approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This BAA will also serve to advance the knowledge and scientific understanding of candidates’ platform technologies, modeling and forecasting, and visual analytics. 

The Agency will accept full proposal submissions for rolling reviews to accelerate the research and development of only medical countermeasures to fight the 2019 novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) or the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

AOI 7.7.1 Diagnostic Assay for human coronavirus using existing FDA-cleared platforms

For more information on the above areas of interest, see pages 32-33; 36; 38-40; 41; 42; 49 of the Amendment 17 document in Supporting Documents below.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

This BAA is open to ALL responsible sources. Offerors may include single entities or teams from private sector organizations, Government laboratories, and academic institutions.

To be eligible for award, a prospective recipient must meet certain minimum standards pertaining to financial resources, ability to comply with the performance schedule, prior record of performance, integrity, organization, experience, operational controls, technical controls, technical skills, facilities, and equipment.

Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) and Government entities (Government/National laboratories, military educational institutions, etc.) are subject to applicable direct competition limitations and cannot propose to this BAA in any capacity unless they address the following conditions. FFRDCs must clearly demonstrate that the proposed work is not otherwise available from the private sector AND must provide a letter on letterhead from their sponsoring organization citing the specific authority establishing their eligibility to propose to government solicitations and compete with industry, and compliance with the associated FFRDC sponsor agreement and terms and conditions. This information is required for FFRDCs proposing to be primes or subcontractors. Government entities must clearly demonstrate that the work is not otherwise available from the private sector and provide written documentation citing the specific statutory authority (as well as, where relevant, contractual authority) establishing their ability to propose to government solicitations. Specific supporting regulatory guidance, together with evidence of agency approval will be required to establish eligibility. BARDA will consider eligibility submissions on a case-by-case basis; however, the burden to prove eligibility for all team members rests solely with the Proposer.

Pre-Application Information:

The Agency appreciates your interest in partnering with BARDA. Due to the COVID-19 response, any white papers or full proposals submissions, other than those that are in support of COVID-19, will be put into a queue. Once the response to COVID19 has subsided, the Agency will resume normal review of submissions for other research areas of interests. BARDA will not be able to meet the timelines highlighted in the Broad Agency Announcement. Thank you for understanding this unprecedented response and delays that will occur.

For COVID-19 response only white paper and full proposal submissions:

- All reviews will be continuous (i.e., the "soft" submission deadline indicated in “Table 1: Submission Deadlines and Government Response Time” will not apply) as they are received in the BARDA-BAA@hhs.gov mailbox,
- All reviews and responses are anticipated to be expedited,
- All awards are anticipated to be expedited and made in FY2020. The final white paper submission deadline is October 31, 2020. The final full proposal submission deadline is October 31, 2020 or as specified in the invitation letter.

Preliminary Inquiries:

The Government realizes that the preparation of a development proposal often represents a substantial investment of time and effort by the Offeror. In an attempt to minimize this burden, BARDA encourages organizations and individuals interested in submitting proposals to make preliminary inquiries as to the general need for the type of R&D effort contemplated before expending extensive effort in preparing a detailed proposal or submitting proprietary information.
