Background:
To ensure we are able to continue to provide Veterans with the benefits and care they have earned through their selfless service, the Department of Veterans Affairs (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.
Requirement Description:

VA has a requirement to purchase ******** brand or equal Hemofiltration Units and related equipment to deliver patient care at its VA medical facilities throughout the United States, U.S. Territories, Guam, and the Philippines. ******** BNOE Hemofiltration Units Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT) machines are used to treat patients suffering from acute kidney injury (AKI), a critical condition characterized by sudden temporary loss of normal kidney function. CRRT machines perform extracorporeal dialysis to replace the main activity of the kidneys in patients with impaired renal function. Impaired kidney function causes the body to retain metabolic wastes and water. Hemofiltration therapy removes these, as well as, ions and organic salts from the bloodstream. This process restores a reasonable state of health by partially performing renal functions, thereby minimizing further damage to other organs and physiologic systems.
