This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for Brand Name or Equal 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 in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; quotes are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued.
Solicitation number VA119-17-Q-0435 is issued for this combined synopsis/solicitation; this solicitation is being issued as a Request for Quote (RFQ). This combined synopsis/solicitation incorporates provisions and clauses in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) 2005-94 and 2005-95, both dated 19 Jan 2017.
The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is transforming the service it provides to Veterans through the MyVA effort. MyVA was established in July 2015 to modernize the Department of Veterans Affairs culture, processes, and capabilities to put the needs, expectations and interests of Veterans and their families first. This effort is highly visible, with significant attention within the highest levels of government, the public, and the press.
As this transformation progresses, VA's mission requirements to support America s Veterans are growing more quickly than its budget. Key elements of VA s expanded mission requirements include:
15% expansion in the number of Veterans enrolled in VA Healthcare from FY 2009 through FY 2016
More than 100% increase between FY 2009 and FY 2016 in the number of 100% disabled Veterans cared for by VA
6% increase in the number of medical appointments scheduled in FY 2016 vs FY 2014
More than 300% increase between FY 2009 and FY 2016 in the number of Veterans receiving education benefits through the VA
In order to ensure we are able 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 in order to deliver optimal value to our Veterans.
In light of this transformation, the VA has a requirement to purchase Stationary Bicycles to deliver patient care at its VA Medical Centers throughout the United States, U.S. Territories, Guam and the Philippines.A Stationary Bicycles are designed to simulate the motions of riding a bicycle; the bicycles remain stationary. These exercisers are usually self-powered devices; they may use wheels, friction belts, magnets, fans, or hydraulics to increase resistance. Some stationary bicycles may include a motor to regulate speed. The bicycles usually include workout program modes that can adjust resistance and a monitor to display the workout time, distance, speed, calories burned, and heart rate; they often have handlebars with grip pulse sensors, and some bicycles have heart-rate controls that can adjust the resistance level to suit the targeted heart rate. Exerciser: Aerobic: Stationary Bicycles are intended to increase cardiovascular endurance by keeping the heart and pulmonary rate elevated for a continuous period. Additionally, they provide strength and endurance to the lower-limb muscles (e.g., quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, and gluteus). Dedicated bicycles with upright and recumbent sitting positions for users are available. Annually, the VA has historically bought more than $200k in Stationary Bicycles.
