FDA roles out RFP doc for vendors to help it monitor illicit product sales online

Mar 21 FDA has posted a RFP documentthe plan here is to hire a contractor to look for a laundry list of illegal activity involving FDA-regulated products, from prescription drugs for sale online contrary to U.S. law, to the sale of stolen blood. The monitoring would cover websites that sell products, process payments, perform direct marketing or order fulfillment services, and even in some cases merely provide information online.

 the monitoring will include sifting through mounds of publicly available information on websites, online bulletin boards, chat rooms, social networks and even email spam in order to find and report websites that might be engaging in illegal trade or marketing.
