Executive Summary

House Republicans Joe Barton, Texas, and John Shimkus, Illinois, question a $1.5 million sole source contract to the Center for Professional Development firm to improve morale at FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research. In a Dec. 12 letter, they say they are "very concerned about the lack of any justifiable metrics for measuring success" and ask Commissioner Andrew von Eschenbach to explain how the award was made. The congressmen say there is little information about the firm's expertise with this type of project, although the firm's Web site describes work with a contractor who uses "the metaphor of color, symbol, dance and story to help people give meaning to their lives and work.
