Veterans Affairs has turned to four companies to supplement its biomedical engineering staff under a $200 million contract.
The companies will provide a variety of services to the biomedical engineering departments at VA medical centers and outpatient clinics. Services include corrective and planned maintenance, professional services, and project management.
Picked for the contract are Enabled Advisors LLC, Deltastrac LLC, Agilerank LLC, and Blue Water Thinking. The contract runs through July 31, 2026, if all options are exercised. The companies will compete with each other for task orders.
Under the professional services portion of the contract, the companies will provide services such as project management, specification development, technical analysis, risk assessment, systems design and integration, configuration, cybersecurity risk management, and hardware and software upgrades.
VA is using the contract as interim step while it recruits and hires permanent biomedical engineering staff.
