The Health Research Board (HRB) is the lead agency in Ireland supporting and funding health research. The HRB on behalf of the Department of Health (hereinafter referred to as the ‘Department’) invites tenders by open competition. The purpose of this tender is to invite applications to deliver Wave 3 and the Option to deliver Wave 4 of IDS-TILDA over the next 3 year cycle and a further 3year cycle for the Option linked to Wave 4. The IDS-TILDA study represents a critical source of evidence to assist policy makers and programme planners to better understand ageing for people with intellectual disability in Ireland across time and across a large number of domains.
The goal of this next phase of IDS-TILDA is to continue the steady-state longitudinal data collection, building on previous Waves 1 and 2 to:
- Guide future planning, policies and services in ageing and disability in Ireland;
- To propose enhancements and/or additions to the content, measures and methods used in previous waves of IDS-TILDA, where appropriate;
- Serve as a driver and facilitator of other innovative research sub-studies;
- Develop linkages and harmonisation efforts to enable comparative analyses with national and international partners working in the area of disability and ageing;
- Enhance public access to data from Wave 3 and 4 of IDS-TILDA.
The maximum funding for Wave 3 is 600 000 EUR (inclusive of VAT if applicable) and the HRB will reserve the option to extend the contract for Wave 4 which may be accepted or rejected by the HRB strictly at their sole discretion. The maximum price for Wave 4 will be based on the maximum price for Wave 3 adjusted by any movement in the Consumer Price Index using the date of the contract issued for Wave 3 as the base date for the indexation.
