HANDLE Signs National Contract with Veterans Health Administration

During the COVID-19 Pandemic, HANDLE’s ability to provide trustworthy analytics, logistics and equipment support services has never been stronger.  On April 3rd, HANDLE was awarded the Deployment of Equipment Recertification, and Management of Surge Capacity (DERMS) contract by The Department of Veteran Affairs to provide support in identifying, recertifying and rebalancing critical care items within the VHA surplus equipment fleet.

DERMS Contract

In lieu of purchasing new equipment with long lead times to fill surges, the Veterans Health Administration is taking advantage of their current excess inventory so their healthcare providers have access to more critical pieces of equipment.  HANDLE has implemented a trusted recertification process that includes restoring the VHA’s equipment to OEM specifications.  This is provided through HANDLE’s vetted network of refurbishers and OEM’s while also effectively documenting the process and providing Full Warranties. The HANDLE Operations Center allows the company to effectively and efficiently receive, recertify, store, and redeploy VA assets.  Through the DERMS contract, HANDLE has recertified hundreds of critical medical devices and helped the Veterans Health Administration prepare a strategy to deploy the recertified equipment wherever and whenever it is most critically needed.
