Policy Initiative

Calling for policy research teams (formal or ad hoc) to become part of a qualified pool for three years.

The Policy Initiative is intended to close the gap between research and policy (both public and private) by funding research that contributes to creating an environment in California that leads to less breast cancer.

Using an open, competitive, peer-reviewed process, CBCRP will establish a pool of pre-qualified policy research investigators/teams who are poised to quickly fill knowledge gaps to inform breast cancerrelevant policy. We will select research questions and contract with our pre-qualified policy investigators/teams to generate answers and then effectively deliver those answers to policymakers.

Policy Initiative Requests for Qualifications: Closed RFQ

As part of our Policy Initiative, we are sponsoring an open Request for Qualifications (RFQ) to select teams of on-call investigators to conduct rapid response research for our new Policy Initiative. CBCRP has allocated $150,000 annually to this initiative. These funds may be dedicated to one team or spread out over multiple teams, depending on the complexity of the topics and the potential for impact of the projects.
