According to the solicitation, caBIG is seeking a contractor who can "maintain and enhance all components of caB2B in terms of functionality and usability along with maintainability, security, and performance through focused refactoring."
The caB2B system allows users to create queries for finding data in caGrid-enabled data services and returns those results in a user-friendly graphical user interface. It is "intended to be used by the physician scientist or basic biological researcher," according to the solicitation.
The caB2B system consists of a desktop client, an administrative module, a database for storing metadata and other information, and a web application.
Proposals must be received by Nov. 9.
