Below Are Steps For Doing Business With The  VA





DAPA


Distribution and Pricing Agreement (DAPA) helps establish the selling price for medical and pharmaceutical products and gives the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) the authority to distribute the DAPA-holder's products to the military.

A Prime Vendor is a distributor of brand-specific pharmaceuticals and medical supplies typically for next-day delivery to DoD medical treatment facilities (and other federally-funded facilities) who are customers of DLA’s Medical/Surgical Prime Vendor Program.  In the Program, DLA provides item prices permitted to be charged to customers. 

The Prime Vendors are compensated via the payment of a distribution fee, which is a contracted percentage of the item price delivered.  Prices are set, independent of the Prime Vendors. directly with manufacturers and suppliers via a pricing instrument known as a DAPA – a Distribution and Pricing Agreement. 

While obtaining a DAPA is a requirement for manufacturers and suppliers to provide their medical-related products through DLA’s Medical/Surgical Prime Vendor Program, it is only the first step in the process.  All DAPA-holders are also required to sign a distribution agreement, obtain product liability coverage, and market their products.

What do they buy?

Although there are certain priority sources identified by Federal regulations, each facility purchases a considerable amount of its requirements from both local and nationwide sources. Examples of items purchased are:


Pharmaceuticals and medical and surgical supplies

Perishable subsistence

Equipment, supplies, and materials for facility operation

Maintenance and repair of medical and scientific equipment

Building construction, maintenance, and repair

Prosthetic and orthopedic aids

Medical gases



How do they buy?

Acquisitions are accomplished by sealed bidding, negotiation, or simplified acquisition procedures.

Each of these methods is designed to promote full and open competition to the maximum extent possible, which in turn allows all responsible bidders/offerors an opportunity to compete. The most suitable, efficient, and economical procedure will be used, taking into consideration the circumstances of each acquisition. Much of the purchasing is accomplished by using Federal Supply Schedules.

A significant portion, however, will be acquired from sources obtained through the publication of solicitations and/or requests for information in the SAM or any other acceptable means that will provide the procuring activity with a sufficient number of responsible bidders/ offerors to ensure full and open competition.
