Pricing, Copy of State-Issued Wholesale Drug Distributor License, and Signed Standard Form (SF 1449) of Solicitation shall be e-mailed to Mark Lojewski, Contracting Specialist, at mark.lojewski@va.gov by Offer Due Date/Time specified on Block 8 of SF 1449:

Vendors shall submit pricing on Solicitation Attachment 1 (Quote Spreadsheet)

Pricing submitted shall be on Microsoft Excel format of Quote Spreadsheet. Alternate formats, including PDF format, will not be accepted. Vendors proposing alternate National Drug Codes (NDC) for items and/or alternate delivery dates for items shall list these on the Quote Spreadsheet.

Vendors shall submit copy of State-Issued Wholesale Drug Distributor License

VA follows U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) regulations to ensure reputable, properly licensed wholesale drug distributors.

For DSCSA purposes, generally any entity that engages in the distribution of a drug to a person other than a consumer or patient or receipt of a drug by a person other than the consumer or patient is considered a wholesale distributor. See section 581(29) & 503(e)(4)) of the DSCSA. If the entity is actually buying and selling the drugs, they are conducting activities that constitute wholesale distribution and should be licensed as a wholesale distributor. If the entity is actually buying and selling the drugs, they are conducting activities that constitute wholesale distribution and shall be licensed as a wholesale distributor.

Third party logistics providers (3PL) are not eligible to submit a quote. A 3PL is defined in the DSCSA as an entity which provides or coordinates warehousing, or other logistics services of a product in interstate commerce on behalf of a manufacturer, wholesale distributor, or dispenser of a product, but does not take ownership of the product nor have responsibility to direct the sale. Because the Government is seeking firms to procure drugs for the VA, by definition, 3PLs do not take ownership nor have the responsibility to direct the sale of the drugs. Therefore, 3PLs are not eligible.

This is also applicable in regards to vendors citing drop shipment provisions of the DSCSA as the reason for licensure not required. Section 582(f) of the FD&C Act exempts wholesale distributors who, do not physically handle or store product, from certain provisions of section 582 involving product tracing and product identifiers. While the drop shipment description may apply to the awardee(s), it does not exempt them from the requirement that they be licensed as wholesale distributors.

3) Vendors shall sign and submit SF 1449 of solicitation. By signing, vendor acknowledges all solicitation amendments (if applicable) and certifies IAW FAR 52.209-5 (Representation by Corporations Regarding An Unpaid Tax Liability or Felony Conviction Under Any Federal Law) that Vendor:

Does not have any unpaid Federal tax liability that has been assessed and that is not being paid in a timely manner pursuant to an agreement with the authority responsible for collecting the tax liability.

Vendor, including its officers or agents acting on its behalf, have not been convicted of a felony criminal violation under a Federal or State law within the preceding 24 months
