Five Year Value of $202 Million
ATLANTA, April 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DLH Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ: DLHC) (“DLH” or the “Company”), a leading provider of innovative healthcare research, services and solutions to federal agencies, today announced that it has been awarded a follow-on contract to provide medical logistics to the Department of Veterans Affairs (“VA”) Consolidated Mail Outpatient Pharmacy (“CMOP”). The contract includes a base period of one year, with four one-year options, for a total value of $202 million. This award completes the procurement process under which the VA initially evaluated proposals from various tiers of small businesses for potentially awarding a set-aside contract. Ultimately, the VA removed all other set-aside tiers from consideration and evaluated proposals from the large business tier in making its award to DLH.
“Our 20-year relationship with the VA is a tremendous source of pride for our company,” said Kevin Wilson, President of DLH’s Health & Logistics Services operating unit. “The COVID-19 pandemic demonstrated the indispensable value of mail order as an additional care tool, and DLH is thrilled to continue in the development of innovative health solutions.”
The contract leverages DLH’s medical logistics expertise with highly automated processing facilities and innovative delivery systems, using advanced analytics and statistical algorithms, to assist in the seamless delivery of pharmaceuticals to veterans. The CMOP program functions as a virtual extension of the Veterans Affairs Medical Center pharmacies. The program processed over 120 million prescriptions last year from seven geographical locations nationwide supporting our nation’s veterans.
“DLH is honored to continue our support of the VA’s CMOP program in its mission to ensure millions of veterans receive their vital prescription medications on time,” said Zach Parker, President & CEO of DLH. “Our medical logistics experts utilize innovative technology and advanced processes to improve productivity and lower costs for our customer – maximizing the resources available for veterans.”
