VA Schedule Contracts
Selling Medical Equipment &
Healthcare Services to the Government
Veterans Affairs (VA) contracts help companies sell professional medical healthcare services, as well as medical and dental equipment, to the U.S. federal government. VA Schedules are government-wide acquisition contracts (GWAC’s); meaning in addition to the VA, all federal agencies can make purchases through the VA Schedules. VA Schedules can be referred to interchangeably as VA Schedule Contracts, VA Contracts, VA Federal Supply Schedule (FSS), and the VA FSS Program.
VA Schedule Contracts are also often referred to as General Services Administration (GSA) Schedule Contracts because they are part of the Federal Supply Schedule. While GSA manages the Federal Supply Schedule Program, they delegated management of Schedules that cover medical products and services to the VA National Acquisition Center (NAC).
How Can a Company Obtain a VA Schedule Contract?
As with GSA Schedule Contracts, procurements through VA contracting are streamlined because pricing, terms, and conditions have been pre-negotiated. In order to obtain a VA Contract a company must submit a proposal in response to the appropriate VA Schedule solicitation for the VA’s consideration. For planning purposes, companies should note that the review period can take approximately a year; this does not include the time it takes your company to prepare the proposal.
