Defense Health Agency (DHA)
Industry Day


The Defense Health Agency (DHA) was established on October 1, 2013, and is responsible for managing enterprise-wide support of the Department's medical mission. An important element of this organizational change is the establishment of ten shared services -- and the introduction of common business and clinical process across the Military Health System (MHS).

The process by which the DHA procures services, supplies and equipment is an important component of this transformation. The DHA will be holding an Industry Day to engage private sector organizations interested in learning about requirements for a replacement contract vehicle for the Defense Medical Information Systems/Systems Integration, Design, Development, Operations, and Maintenance Services (D/SIDDOMS III), an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract.

The Industry Day will be held on July 10, 2014, at the Ronald Reagan Building, Washington, DC:
