UF BPA Quotes

Pharmaceutical companies may submit UF BPA price quotes for pharmaceutical agents in the classes under review that will be used by the DoD P&T Committee as the cost to the government portion of its relative cost effectiveness considerations under 32 CFR 199.21. Signed UF BPA price quotes may be submitted in Adobe PDF file format via e-mail to UFBPA@tma.osd.mil provided the original signed UF BPA quote, identical in every respect, is received by Contracting the next business day. No other electronic format is acceptable. The deadline for submission of signed UF BPA price quotes to TMA Contracting is 1:00 PM EST on the applicable date indicated in the table above. Quotes received after the deadline may be rejected by the Contracting Officer. NOTE: Original quotes will not be accepted via FAX.

The establishment of a UF BPA with a pharmaceutical company for a generic (multi-source) pharmaceutical agent does not establish that pharmaceutical company as the sole source of supply for the pharmaceutical agent. However, in the event of existing Joint DoD/VA contracts, UF BPA quotes will not be accepted for generic (multi-source) pharmaceutical agents.

Signed UF VARR quotes may be submitted in Adobe PDF file format via e-mail to UF-VARR@amedd.army.mil provided the original signed UF VARR quote, identical in every respect, is received by DoD the next business day. No other electronic format is acceptable. The deadline for submission of signed UF VARR quotes to the DoD is 1:00 PM EST on the applicable date indicated in the table.
