Justification for the Exception to Competition

This project will be implemented through a single source cooperative agreement because the HSC is uniquely positioned to immediately undertake and complete the activities within the seven month time frame. HSC is currently developing low literacy poison prevention materials, and this project will enhance the existing package of materials. The HSC has existing organizational knowledge and experience in developing materials for the low literacy population through its Home Safety Literacy Project, of which this project will be a component. The HSC has an existing relationship with key stakeholders in place for reaching this vulnerable population, and the HSC project director has extensive expertise in poison prevention education.
