The Network Contracting Office 15 (NCO15) Consolidated Mail Outpatient Pharmacy (CMOP) Acquisitions Division, located in Leavenworth, Kansas, provides contracting support to the CMOP fulfillment program. The CMOP facilities, located throughout the nation, fill Veterans prescriptions. During the Industry Days Event, we plan to provide information to participating vendors about the CMOP program and items that are relevant to submitting quotes/proposals and to performing pharmaceutical contracts.
The dates scheduled are August 6, 7 and 8, 2019. PLEASE NOTE: August 6, 2019, is Reserved for New Vendors Only. A new vendor is defined as a vendor that has never attended a CMOP Industry Days Event and/or a vendor new to selling pharmaceuticals. The agenda for August 6, 2019, is developed for new vendors. The agenda for the second two days will be designed for vendors that have attended a previous CMOP Industry Day. Our goal is to meet with total of 21 vendors over the three-day event. NOTE: The three Large Business spots may be filled with SDVOSB/VOSB/SB s/other socioeconomic categories if unfilled by July 19, 2019, at 4:00 p.m. (CST).
The events are being scheduled in accordance with Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 15.201(e) as part of continuing market research. The three (3) one-day event will be held at the NCO15 office located at 3450 S. 4th Street Trafficway, Leavenworth, Kansas. Leavenworth is located approximately 23 miles from the Kansas City International Airport (via I-29N and MO-92E). It is a rural area and, therefore, public transportation is not readily available. Lunch will not be provided; however, there are restaurants available within a two-mile radius of the event location.
The objective of the event is to provide information about the CMOP mission and the pharmaceutical acquisition process and to obtain input from pharmaceutical provider industry representatives and distributors with expertise in and knowledge of the acquisition and supply of open market pharmaceuticals. In addition, the event is to provide preliminary information on anticipated requirements, business/contract considerations and possible acquisition strategies. Furthermore, each interested party will have the opportunity to express their technical, contractual and procedural concerns in regards to existing and upcoming acquisitions.
There is no commitment by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Regional Procurement Office (RPO) Central Region, NCO15 CMOP Acquisitions Division, to issue a solicitation, make an award, or to be responsible for any monies expended by interested parties in support of this event. The VA is neither committed nor obligated to pay for information provided, and no basis for claims against the VA shall arise as a result of a response to this Special Announcement/ Request for Information.
Each day, beginning at 8:15 am, presentations by the CMOP Staff and NCO15 CMOP Acquisitions Division Staff will occur. The intent is to improve the overall understanding of the CMOP mission and acquisition process from identification of requirements through delivery of product.
Industry is not required to provide presentations. Because of time constraints, we will not be able to have multiple one-on-one sessions. We ask if anyone has specific questions they would like addressed during the event to submit them via e-mail ( no later than July 8, 2019.
