Company Name: _________________________ 
 
I am conducting market research for the procurement of Vardenafil HCL Tablets for the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Department of Defense (DOD), Indian Health Service (IHS), Bureau of Prisons (BOP), and Federal Health Care Center (FHCC).  This procurement will result in a national mandatory requirements contract for the above agencies. Other companies with the same/similar product will be blocked out for ordering; therefore it is our goal to award lower than FSS/Open Market prices on the resultant national contract based on purchases of a committed volume. These products will be awarded in the aggregate for all strengths and sizes for the base year and all option years included in the solicitation. Please provide a response to the following:
