Requirement Description:
To ensure our ability to continue to provide Veterans with the benefits and care they have earned through their selfless service, VA is changing the way we do business. Specifically, we are improving the management of our supply chain to aggregate demand and facilitate ease of ordering in the field. Throughout VA, we are moving from local contracting to national contracting whenever feasible. Simplified ordering processes will drive volume towards suppliers with national contracts. Simultaneously, greater cost transparency throughout the VA will allow clinicians and VA leaders to select medical equipment that optimizes Veteran outcomes at the lowest cost.
For our suppliers, we anticipate that these changes will ease the process of doing business with the VA and drive down our suppliers costs. We welcome opportunities to work closely with suppliers to further reduce costs. In return, we expect that suppliers will offer the VA value commensurate with VA s status as the largest integrated healthcare provider in the United States. Specifically, VA expects that it will receive the most favorable prices, warranties, conditions, benefits, and terms for the same product as those given by the supplier to any provider in the country. We expect that VA s large volumes will increasingly be directed toward those suppliers best able to offer value to the VA. VA looks forward to collaborating with its suppliers to further drive down costs to deliver optimal value to our Veterans.
