Contracts Management Branch
As a matter of general information, approximately six years ago the NIH implemented a restructuring and consolidation of certain
acquisition functions, operations, and offices. Instead of most Institutes having their own contracts offices, as they did
in the past, there are now 10 Offices of Acquisitions (OAs) serving the various Institutes and Centers within NIH. Effective
October 31, 2005, the Contracts Management Branches of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS),
the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), and the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) were combined to form a new
Office of Acquisitions, Neurosciences. The new Office of Acquisitions, Neurosciences is organizationally aligned under the
National Institute on Drug Abuse, NIH. Given the demonstrated experience and acumen of the R&D contract operations for each
of the three Institutes, the Office of Acquisitions, Neurosciences retained separate R&D branches for each Institute. Therefore,
what was formerly the Contracts Management Branch, NINDS is now the NINDS R&D Contracts Management Branch, NIDA, NIH.
