Share Article

The partnership between Advance Med, LLC And Perago Contract Specialists, LLC will provide quality healthcare staffing to the Veterans Administration - Nationwide.

Advance Med LLC, a leader in healthcare staffing since 2001, specializing in the contract placement of Nursing, Rehab, Respiratory and Diagnostic Imaging providers, has signed a partnership agreement with Perago Contracting Specialists, LLC., a certified Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business headquartered in Buckhannon, WV. This partnership will result in a multitude of government contracts to be filled and assist in providing high-quality medical treatment for deserving veterans across the nation.

Advance Med, LLC has an active presence in the government contracting world. In 2013 they were identified and selected by the US Small Business Administration (SBA) as the Region VI Prime Contractor. Advanced Med, LLC has received great accolades from other Veteran Affairs Healthcare Systems for the quality of providers and service. Their expertise and proficiency in Government Healthcare Staffing as well as their billing and credentialing processes provides a service that is second to none.

Bruce Hewitt, the founder and CEO of Perago Contract Specialist expressed his excitement by stating, “As a Veteran who receives all my medical care at a VA Hospital, I take immense pride in knowing that Perago Contract Specialist has a hand in providing the highest quality of medical care for not only myself but for all of my brothers and sisters who wore the uniforms of our Nation’s military.” This partnership is a result of the Supreme Court Decision Kingdomware Technologies, Inc. v. United States, No. 14-916 (2016)

The partnership between Perago Contract Specialists, LLC and Advanced Med, LLC will allow Veteran Affairs Contracting Officers (CO) to not only initiate Solicitations or Request for Proposals to be set aside for Service Disabled Veteran Owned companies but to also designate them as a Sole Source Contractor based on Acquisition Policy Flash 16-09. This policy flash allows Contracting Officers to set sole source contracts without a mandatory review from the Office of Small & Disadvantage Business Utilization. This will allow many medical needs to be placed much faster and provide more immediate assistance for understaffed Veteran Affair Hospitals.

Jeremy McGowan, Director of Operations for Perago Contracting Specialists stated, "This is a huge paradigm shift in the way contracting officers can rapidly fill their staffing needs. No longer will they be required to go through the entire process of seeking sources of providers, posting a solicitation and undergoing the extremely time consuming and bureaucratic process of selection. Now, with Acquisition Policy Flash 16-09 and the Perago - Advanced Med partnership, contracting officers can contact either company direct and receive timely and expert placements for their immediate needs."
