Aldevra’s Role in Supporting Veterans’ Healthcare through the VA FSS

Jan 18, 2024 | News

The Veterans Affairs Federal Supply Schedule (VA FSS) is a cornerstone program in the U.S. healthcare system, especially for the care of veterans. Operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) under the authority delegated by the General Services Administration (GSA), the VA FSS is instrumental in providing VA facilities with access to essential medical and non-medical products and services. Aldevra, a service-disabled veteran-owned small business (SDVOSB) holding VA FSS contract number 36F79723D0090, exemplifies the profound impact of veteran-led companies in this arena.

Understanding the VA FSS

The VA FSS, managed by the VA’s National Acquisition Center (NAC), streamlines procurement to ensure efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Key Aspects of a VA FSS Contract:

  • Governmentwide Accessibility: VA FSS contracts are available to all federal agencies, making them a go-to source for diverse procurement needs.
  • Support for Diverse Businesses: Agencies have the option to select from a diverse pool of contractors, including service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses and small disadvantaged businesses like Aldevra. This supports federal goals for inclusive contracting and enables agencies to contribute to the growth of these businesses.
  • Pre-negotiated Terms: The VA has already negotiated the terms and pricing for the products on these contracts, providing agencies with fair and reasonable pricing and simplifying the procurement process.
  • Wide Range of Products: The VA FSS contract covers an extensive spectrum of medical equipment and supplies.
  • Simplified Acquisition Process: The VA FSS program streamlines the acquisition process, allowing agencies to procure products more efficiently, with reduced time and administrative effort.
  • Flexibility and Choice: Agencies benefit from the flexibility to choose from a wide range of contractors and products, ensuring they can find options that best fit their specific needs.
  • Continuous Open Season: The VA FSS contract operates with a continuous open season, allowing vendors to offer their products and services at any time, unlike traditional contracts with set proposal submission periods.
  • Compliance and Standards: Vendors under the VA FSS contract are thoroughly vetted for compliance with federal regulations and standards, ensuring reliable, high-quality offerings for government agencies.
  • Streamlined Ordering via GSA Advantage!: GSA’s online shopping and ordering system, GSA Advantage!, further simplifies the procurement process, enabling direct orders from the MAS schedule.

Aldevra’s Vital Products for Veterans’ Healthcare

Aldevra provides crucial equipment under the VA FSS contract, enhancing VA facilities’ operations:

  • Medical Refrigerators and Freezers: These products are essential for preserving the integrity of critical medications and vaccines.
  • Carts, Tugs, Workstations and Patient Transport Chairs: These facilitate effective logistics within VA hospitals, critical for patient mobility and care.

The Collaborative Framework of VA FSS, GSA, and Aldevra

  • Prioritizing Veteran-Owned Businesses: A key aspect of the VA’s procurement strategy is its preference for SDVOSBs. This approach aligns with the VA’s commitment to supporting veteran entrepreneurs, acknowledging their service and contributions. Aldevra’s involvement in the VA FSS as an SDVOSB is a prime example of this commitment to provide quality supplies for VA facilities.
  • Streamlined and Cost-Effective Procurement: The GSA’s delegation of authority to the VA allows for efficient procurement processes, with Aldevra’s contract being a key example.
  • High-Quality and Diverse Products: Aldevra’s range of products contributes to the quality and variety of equipment available, directly impacting the level of care provided to veterans.


Aldevra’s participation in the VA FSS as an SDVOSB highlights the successful integration of public-private partnerships in healthcare procurement. Their dedication to providing essential medical equipment under contract number 36F79723D0090 underlines their commitment to supporting veterans’ healthcare needs. This collaboration demonstrates Aldevra’s business acumen and alignment with the VA’s mission to prioritize veteran-owned businesses, ultimately benefiting those who have served the nation.
