OMB Recommends HHS Use DLA-DHA Military Medical Electronics Catalog

The Office of Management and Budget has recommended the Department of Health and Human Services use an electronic catalog for military medical materials compiled by the Defense Health Agency and Defense Logistics Agency.

DLA said Wednesday ECAT is an online system designed to allow customers to browse, compare and purchase medical supplies, such as pharmaceutical, laboratory, dental, optical fabrications and commercial medical and surgical equipment.

The system will support merchants to maintain their market share through direct customer-vendor interactions, said Eileen Motta, a contracting officer and team chief for the medical supply chain at DLA’s troop support unit.

A team of DLA Troop Support and DHA’s medical logistics division partnered to launch the catalog.
