Mayo Clinic and Elgin biz + Fed contract $

Here's interesting tidbit that showed up last week from a trial subscription from a news service that tracks Federal contracts. Two local operations – including Mayo Clinic –  landed money from the Feds for projects.
I have no real details on these yet. But I'll see if I can find out anything more on more.
Targeted News Service

WASHINGTON, Sept. 4 -- The following federal contracts were announced by federal agencies as having been awarded to companies operating in Minnesota.

$499,997 Federal Contract Awarded to Mayo Foundation

WASHINGTON, Sept. 4 -- Mayo Foundation, Rochester, Minn., won a $499,997 federal contract from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' National Institutes of Health, Rockville, Md., for research on "Early Therapeutics Development with Phase II Emphasis".


$52,800 Federal Contract Awarded to Zumbro Valley Forestry

WASHINGTON, Sept. 4 -- Zumbro Valley Forestry, Elgin, Minn., won a federal contract valued at up to $52,800.20 from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Rock Island, Ill., for vegetative maintenance services. Place of performance will be in Lake Red Rock, Knoxville, Iowa.


This amount is actually a modification to an existing funded cancer clinical
research grant. The grant comes from the National Cancer Institute, which is
part of Health and Human Services.
