Industry Proposals

Throughout the COVID-19 public health emergency, the JATF has provided assisted acquisition support to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). As part of that support, the JATF has used an industry portal and a Commercial Solutions Opening to solicit concepts from industry in support of domestic industrial capacity for COVID-19 response priorities, as outlined by HHS.

Thank you for your ongoing interest in the government’s COVID-19 response efforts. At this time, DoD is not currently supporting a specific requirement from HHS for assisted acquisition. We encourage companies to monitor the HHS Broad Agency Announcement website and beta.SAM.gov for ongoing government requirements. Any updates to the JATF’s assisted acquisition efforts for HHS will be updated on this website.

A recording of the event and presentation materials were provided to registered participants.
