VA Schedule Contracts (FSS Contract)

If your company provides medical or dental equipment and supplies, healthcare services, or pharmaceuticals to the federal government, you may want to consider obtaining a Veterans Affairs (VA) Schedule Contract.

Government Contracts for Healthcare Industry – GSA Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) Program

The General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule (FSS) Program was created to streamline the federal procurement process. GSA delegates management of Schedules that cover medical products and services to the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). These contracts are VA Schedule Contracts – or VA Federal Supply Schedule Contracts – however people frequently refer to them as GSA Schedule Contracts.

To obtain a VA Schedule Contract a company must submit a proposal and undergo a thorough review process that considers factors including commercial sales practices, capabilities, financials, and past performance. If the proposal is accepted, the company is awarded a VA Schedule Contract, which contains pre-negotiated pricing, terms, and conditions. Federal agencies and VA hospitals can then purchase a company’s products and services directly through their VA Schedule Contract or a Federal Supply Schedule (FSS).

There are 9 VA Schedule Contracts that companies can obtain based upon the products or services they offer.
