Aug 28, 2020 | Sources Sought

This is not a request for bids, quotes, or proposals. This is a Sources Sought notice for the identification of potential vendors to provide service to dispose of and replace (2) two roll up doors at laundry and
sani-pak locations at the Richmond VA Medical Center.

The purpose of this notice is to gain knowledge of potential qualified sources and their business size classification (hubzone, 8(a), small, small disadvantaged, small veteran owned or service disabled veteran owned small business) relative to NAICS 332321 (size standard of 750 employees or less).
