NCI's caBIG Seeks Applicants for Support Service Provider Program

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Cancer Institute is seeking applicants for its caBIG Support Service Provider Program — a network of organizations that provide technical support for the NCI’s Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid.
NCI’s Center for Biomedical Informatics and Information Technology issued a solicitation for the program today.
Under the terms of the Support Service Providers Program, providers are granted a “limited license” to NCI’s caBIG program trademark, which allows them to market support services to caBIG participants.
NCI said that applicants should possess expertise in either help desk support; adaptation and enhancement of caBIG-compatible software applications; deployment support for caBIG software applications; or documentation and training materials and services.
Additional information about the caBIG Support Service Provider Program is available here.
Proposals are due Nov. 18.
