This five-year contract (SPE2DE-24-D-0003) to supply medical/surgical products to the Department of Defense (DoD) and other Federal agencies will significantly improve access to essential medical and surgical supplies for health care practitioners at the DoD and Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health facilities across the country.
