The Air Force District Washington at Bolling Air Force Base, Washington, DC has awarded a pair of $1.93 billion indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity; fixed price with economic price adjustment contracts. The contractors will recruit, qualify and retain health care workers at 63 Air Force medical treatment facilities in 58 geographic locations. DID covered a similar contract in November 2005, which set out 5 additional winners.
The USAF can issues delivery orders totaling up to the maximum amount indicated above, but they can also issue less if circumstances warrant. Work will be complete in November 2010, and the winners are:
- Magnum Medical Joint Venture, Angleton, TX (FA7014-06-D-0015). This is a partnership between Sterling Medical Associates, Inc. and Magnum Opus Technologies, Inc.
