Requests for Proposals

The CDC Foundation issues requests for proposals (RFP) to sub-grant funds received for a specific project. These RFPs will seek:

  • providers of products or services required for a specific CDC Foundation program with CDC, or
  • eligible nonprofit or governmental organizations that wish to participate in a CDC Foundation program addressing a specific health issue.
  • a consultant/independent contractor (i.e. a sole proprietor, company, nonprofit, etc.) whose services are retained for a specified activity/project during a set time frame. The consultant/independent contractor works independently and is paid according to the terms of their written agreement with the Foundation. The consultant/independent contractor is not an employee of the CDC Foundation.

Data Modernization Workforce Acceleration Initiative Cohort 2

The goal of the Workforce Acceleration Initiative (WAI) is to strengthen public health agencies’ (PHA) capacity to deliver information system improvements that are of top priority to each PHA by adding technology and data experts to their teams. The WAI’s support of diverse PHAs in improving their information systems is anticipated to also accelerate progress toward CDC’s Public Health Data Strategy (PHDS) goals. This initiative aims to increase the ability of PHAs serving state, tribal, local or territorial jurisdictions to leverage modern technology and interoperable data for public health action.
