VA Makes Awards Totaling up to $4.6 Billion to Streamline its Medical Surgical Supply Chain
Makes Good on MyVA Commitments to Improve Service Delivery to Veterans and Transform VA’s Supply Chain
WASHINGTON – The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) today announced the awarding of four major contracts that will bolster its ability to deliver timely health care to the nation’s Veterans. The contracts make up a $4.6 billion Medical Surgical Prime Vendor Next-Generation Program (MSPV-NG) acquisition, and represent a major step forward in supply chain modernization – a “breakthrough priority” of the Department’s MyVA transformation effort.
“When MyVA was launched in September 2014, we made a commitment to the Veterans who served our nation and the American public to change the way VA operates,” said VA Secretary Robert A. McDonald. “To accomplish this, we had to look at our processes – from the way we deliver care – to the way we order the products that provide care. This Next Generation program improves the acquisition process of surgical supplies, and ensures a speedier delivery to Veterans. It is one of many efforts underway to transform our supply chain to provide the service our Veterans deserve and potential cost savings to American taxpayers.”
Contracts were awarded to the following firms:
The contracts are being awarded for a period of 20 months with two, 20-month options, with an aggregate ceiling of $4.6 billion. The contract will be managed by VA’s Strategic Acquisition Center based in in Fredericksburg, VA.
