Additional Information on Eligibility
THIS IS AN INFORMATION POSTING OF A 'SOLE-SOURCE' TO HEI.
The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) intends to award a cost sharing Cooperative Agreement to the Health Effects Institute (HEI) to critically summarize and clearly and concisely synthesize the state of scientific knowledge concerning mobile source air toxics emissions and potential human health impacts. HEI is an independent, nonprofit corporation chartered in 1980 to provide high-quality, impartial, and relevant science on the health effects of pollutants from motor vehicles and from other sources in the environment. Supported jointly by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), industry, and other private and public organizations, HEI has funded over 170 studies and published over 100 research reports and several special reports producing important research findings on the health effects of oxides, diesel exhaust, ozone, and, most recently, particulate air pollution. HEI pools financial resources from disparate sources, issues responses for proposals in a given area, and then selects the most qualified researchers to conduct targeted research. Its capability to perform this work in the peer review consensus mode for high level review of risk assessment and toxicology issues and data, its experience and high level of risk assessment and toxicology review work in the United States, and the pooled funding mechanism employed for the greatest degree of scientific integrity and credibility, make it uniquely qualified for this project.
