NICHD furthers its mission through planning, soliciting, negotiating, awarding, and administering contracts related to research and other types of activities.

The NICHD Office of Acquisitions (OA) provides resources and guidance to help NICHD and other NIH components purchase items or services for the government. OA negotiates awards and administers contracts and simplified acquisitions for NICHD, Fogarty International Center (FIC), National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD), and the NIH Office of Extramural Research (OER).
