Bethesda, Maryland, Jan. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- When we think of government contracts we often think of large organizations undertaking large obligations. On the other hand, sometimes smaller opportunities arise that can be life-changing for businesses new to the federal sector. Today the Department of Health and Human Services issued a solicitation for a temporary cook and food service worker to serve the needs of the National Institute of Health’s Clinical Kitchen in Bethesda, Maryland. Responses to the notice are due by January 18, 2018.

What makes this contractor opportunity tremendous is its attainability. The tasks required by the two open positions at the National Institute for Health, the nation’s foremost federally funded biomedical research institute, are typical of any institutional kitchen work. Some important aspects for interested candidates to consider are the importance of measurements and accuracy when cooking for research purposes. At this location, over 150 therapeutic and research diets are utilized by patients.

For the best chances to win the government contract, the interested entity for this opportunity must be able to deliver resumes for both positions needed. The budget for a cook’s position has been declared just over $44k for the 12-month period and for the food service worker, just over $41k. The job is a full-time, forty-hour per week position and the period of performance is one-year beginning in March 2018.

Proposals for the solicitation can be sent to Priscilla S. Abalos by email at Priscilla.abalos@nih.gov. The complete solicitation can be found at the federal business opportunities’ website, FBO.gov. Although this opportunity is attainable for businesses new to the federal sector, submitting proposals for government contracts is more complicated than applying for a private sector job. Fortunately, help is available for entities wishing to submit a proposal for the position.
