Veterans Affairs pharmacy program posts RFI on temperature-controlled packaging

Ben Welter - Monday, March 16, 2015

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs' outpatient pharmacy program has posted a request for information in connection with efforts to standardize its cold-chain containers. The standardized packaging will be used to mail patient prescriptions in durable, secure, temperature-controlled packaging. It will be  made up of either a mailing pouch, a mailing bag or a cooler; phase change materials; and, if needed,  additional packing or shipping materials. The purpose of this RFI is to evaluate availability, obtain statements of capability, and gauge the interest and capability of small businesses.
