In 2020, FedMall rolled out the COVID-19 Contingency Corridor allowing state and local governments to shop for non-medical Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and similar material offered by commercial suppliers that support federal COVID-19 relief efforts.
FedMall is the U.S. Government’s premier e-commerce acquisition platform. It provides an optimal online buying experience for U.S. military organizations, as well as federal, state and local governmental agencies. Customers can quickly search and purchase items online – whatever the need may be, from wherever they are.
The benefit of FedMall’s online shopping tool is it provides dynamic pricing and a safe shopping experience with pre-qualified suppliers. Available products from suppliers include cloth facemasks, hand sanitizer, disinfecting wipes, protective gloves, gowns, face shields, signage and other social distancing aids for public and common areas.
Given the demand for COVID-19 protection across the country, DLA has created this special online corridor within FedMall to provide the ability for state and local governments to purchase non-medical PPE at or below the micro-purchase threshold of $10,000. It is designed for first responder missions in support of counter drug, homeland security, and/or emergency response. First responders include firefighters, law enforcement officers, paramedics, emergency medical technicians, emergency management, public health, clinical care, public works, and other skilled support personnel that provide immediate support services during prevention, response, and recovery operations.
