Chimerix Reaffirms Its Commitment to CMX001 as a Medical Countermeasure for Smallpox and Broad-Spectrum Antiviral Agent

are extremely vulnerable to a smallpox attack," said Dr. Painter.

RFP-09-35 BARDA Application and Challenge

BARDA issued RFP-BARDA-09-35 as a small business set-aside in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulations (FAR) in March 2009 and affirmed that decision in an amendment issued in January 2010.  In May 2009, Chimerix submitted an application for RFP-BARDA-09-35 for the development and manufacture of its product candidate, CMX001, as a medical countermeasure for the treatment of smallpox.  

Chimerix was notified by BARDA that the company was in the Competitive Range for the procurement in June 2009.  At that time, Chimerix notified BARDA of its concerns that SIGA exceeded the size standard for this procurement.  BARDA, through the SBA, alerted SIGA that its size status was in question on July 14, 2009.  However, under the FAR, BARDA had to rely on SIGA's self certification until the end of the procurement when a size determination can be, and was, requested by BARDA from the SBA.  On October 8, 2010, Chimerix renewed its concerns regarding SIGA's small business status with BARDA in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulations.  BARDA formally requested a size determination for SIGA from the SBA on October 11, 2010.

The Small Business Administration ruled that SIGA does not qualify as a small business under SBA regulations and therefore is ineligible for an award from BARDA under RFP-BARDA-09-35.  The SBA ruling that SIGA is not considered a small business, in accordance with the Small Business Act, was based on the SBA's determination that SIGA is affiliated with MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings, Inc., a large New York-based private holding company with a controlling interest in SIGA.

"We believe it important that small businesses be able to compete on an equal footing for government contracts designated as set-asides.  We have made every effort to work closely
