Increasing contracting opportunities for Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) will continue to be a priority for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Small Business Program Office (SBPO) in 2021. With that goal in mind, enhancements have been made to the Path to Excellence and Innovation (PEI) Initiative, and a new cohort of Business Partner/HBCUs will be selected to participate.
Please join us for a 30-minute webinar session that will allow you the opportunity to ask questions regarding the application process and the initiative enhancements. Please come prepared with questions.
Applications for procurement-ready HBCUs and potential Business Partners (BPs) are available on the PEI website now and will be accepted until Friday, February 12, 2021.
