Doing business with VA


Through a nationwide  system of medical centers and community-based outpatient clinics, injured active duty personnel to Veterans of all ages rely on VA to deliver unique and resourceful treatment, often for complex medical conditions.  These medical centers and clinics require a broad spectrum of goods and services.  VA purchases these goods on a national, regional and local level. So no matter how large or small your business is, VA is a potential customer. Each facility, purchases a majority of its requirements for direct delivery through its local Acquisition office. You are encouraged to contact each facility for inclusion in its procurement process.
 
Although there are certain priority sources identified by Federal regulations, each facility purchases a considerable amount of its requirements from both local and nationwide sources.
 
Examples of items purchased are:
     • Pharmaceuticals and medical and surgical supplies
     • Perishable subsistence
     • Equipment, supplies, and materials for facility operation
     • Maintenance and repair of medical and scientific equipment
     • Building construction, maintenance, and repair
     • Prosthetic and orthopedic aids
     • Medical gases.
