DOD awards contracts for the purchase of covid-19 antigen over-the-counter test kits in support of POTUS ‘one billion free covid-19 tests at home

This week, the Department of Defense (DoD), in coordination with the U.S. Department of Health (HHS), awarded two contracts to InBios International, Inc. (Seattle, Washington) and Maxim Biomedical, Inc. (Rockville, Maryland)) by purchasing a total of 18 million covid-19 test kits over the counter. These efforts support the president’s plan to deliver one billion free home COVID-19 tests to the nation in response to the Omicron variant.

DoD’s Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND) led this effort in partnership with DoD’s Defense Assisted Acquisition Cell (DA2), Army Contracting Command and the HHS Office of Assistant Secretary for Emergency Preparedness and Response (ASPR ). The procurement was funded through the American Rescue Plan Act to provide critical medical resources to the nation.
