VHA Supplemental Contract Requirements for Combatting COVID-19

1. Contractor employees who work in or travel to VHA locations must comply with the

following:

a. Documentation requirements:

1) If fully vaccinated, contractors shall show proof of vaccination.

i. NOTE: Acceptable proof of vaccination includes a signed record of immunization
from a health care provider or pharmacy, a copy of the COVID-19 Vaccination
Record Card (CDC Form MLS-319813_r, published on September 3, 2020), or a
copy of medical records documenting the vaccination.

2) If unvaccinated, contractors shall show negative COVID-19 test results dated within
three calendar days prior to desired entry date. Test must be approved by the Food
and Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency use or full approval. This includes
tests available by a doctor’s order or an FDA approved over-the-counter test that
includes an affiliated telehealth service.

3) Documentation cited in this section shall be digitally or physically maintained on

each contractor employee while in a VA facility and is subject to inspection prior to
entry to VA facilities and after entry for spot inspections by Contracting Officer
Representatives (CORs) or other hospital personnel.

4) Documentation will not be collected by the VA; contractors shall, at all times, adhere
to and ensure compliance with federal laws designed to protect contractor employee
health information and personally identifiable information.

2. Contractor employees are subject to daily screening for COVID-19 and may be

denied entry to VA facilities if they fail to pass screening protocols. As part of the
screening process contractors may be asked screening questions found on the
COVID-19 Screening Tool. Check regularly for updates.

a. Contractor employees who work away from VA locations, but who will have direct

contact with VA patients shall self-screen utilizing the COVID-19 Screening Tool, in
advance, each day that they will have direct patient contact and in accordance with their
person or persons who coordinate COVID-19 workplace safety efforts at covered
contractor workplaces. Contractors shall, at all times, adhere to and ensure compliance
with federal laws designed to protect contractor employee health information and
personally identifiable information.

3. Contractor must immediately notify their COR or Contracting Officer if contract

performance is jeopardized due to contractor employees being denied entry into VA
Facilities.

4. For indefinite delivery contracts: Contractor agrees to comply with VHA

Supplemental Contract Requirements for any task or delivery orders issued prior to
this modification when performance has already commenced.
