This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Subpart 12.6 "Streamlined Procedures for Evaluation and Solicitation for Commercial Items", as supplemented with additional information included on this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation for the resulting purchase agreements; price lists are being requested to establish one or more Blanket Purchase Agreement s (BPA), and a written solicitation document will not be issued. The Government intends to issue orders off established BPAs on a call basis in accordance with FAR Part 13.303 using Simplified Acquisition Procedures. The solicitation number is 36C25020Q0531. This solicitation has been expanded seeking multiple responsible vendors and sources for delivery of all classes, models and types of diabetic insulin pumps and supplies on a multiple award BPA.
The VA anticipates to award one or more Blanket Purchase Agreement for diabetic s insulin pumps and ancillary items for streamline recurring acquisitions within Veterans Integrated Service Network (VISN) 10. VISN 10 covers 11 Veteran Affairs Medical Centers (VAMC) in three states: Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. VISN 10 order delivery shall be provided to any VAMC and patient places of residence in the 48 Continental United States of America and District of Columbia as prescribed in each call and order. Additional requirements are listed within the attached solicitation document(s), year estimates and price lists. Interested parties are encouraged to review, modify, and use the attached price list format when submitting price list(s) under this solicitation. This BPA is not an obligation of funds or minimum order and is contingent upon the availability of funds. Since the market and demand for these items is not guaranteed and only estimates, contractors are not obligated to provide or deliver any of the items on this agreement until an authorized call/order has been placed and accepted. Obligation occurs only upon issuance of a funded call from a warranted Contracting Officer s list of approved designees in VISN 10 and acceptance of order by the contractor.
