Notice Description

  Development of Risk Models and Databases to Predict Impacts of Climate Change

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), Laboratory for Foodborne Zoonoses (LFZ) has developed preliminary predictive modelling tools to quantify the public health impacts to Canadian residents from biological hazards with emphasis on the expected direct and indirect impacts of climate change. LFZ requires a Contractor with expertise in predictive modelling of microbial hazards, climate change impacts, population health, and food and water safety to provide technical services to develop risk models. An existing risk modelling framework and database architecture will be expanded upon to include consideration of additional pathogen/product combinations. Additional modules will be added to the framework with the long-term goal of expressing the impacts of climate change on food and water safety in various public health (e.g., Disability Adjusted Life Years) and economic measures. The successful Contractor will manage the project and conduct a user needs assessment, review and analysis, design, and development of mathematical models and databases to explore climate change outcomes on Canadian populations, including vulnerable subpopulations. The period of the Contract is from date of award to March 31, 2013, plus three additional one year option periods.
