The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) intends to issue Request for Quotes (RFQ) for the acquisition of Dental consumable commodities and equipment in support of the Dental Prime Vendor (MSPV) Program catalog. The MSPV Program is a partnering effort between Veterans Healthcare Administration (VHA) and the VA Office of Acquisition, Logistics and Construction (OALC) to deliver a national strategic sourcing solution that combines a formulary approach with electronic cataloging and ordering of a wide range of Dental Equipment and Supplies for the Veterans Administration Medical Centers (VAMC) and related facilities.
The establishment of Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) is in direct support of this initiative and is a key element in the success of the MSPV Program as the BPAs will provide the mechanism that will supply the estimated 49,000 types of supplies for distribution to all VHA facilities located in the United States (US) and all US Territories. In order to support the MSPV Program, the VA will establish BPAs for Dental Equipment and Supplies through Open Market BPAs under FAR Parts 12/13. The solicitation will be structured as a tiered evaluation to maximize Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business and Veteran-Owned Small Business (SD/VOSB) participation. Quotations will be evaluated based on technical, price, and past performance.
