Houston-based Vaughn Medical’s tagline is “serving those who served our country.” This service-disabled, veteran-owned small business provides quality products and services at competitive prices to the federal government. With the help of the Procurement Technical Assistance Center (PTAC), a specialty center of the University of Houston Small Business Development Center Network, Vaughn Medical became the only minority-owned company in Southeast Texas to win a General Services Administration contract with the VA . Their five-year Federal Supply Schedule contract helps provide medical equipment and supplies to the VA.
PTAC consultant Deidra Sutton helped David Vaughn (company president and son of veteran and company founder John Vaughn), complete the application to win the Federal Supply Schedule contract, a paperwork- and time-intensive process. The award, a blanket purchase agreement contract to sell Auto Paps, Bi-Paps, C-Paps and accessories, keeps the company busy during tough economic times.
Vaughn Medical not only provides a quality product and service, they also go the extra mile for veteran patients, maintaining an inventory of old wheelchairs for the patients to use while they wait for the set-up, delivery, or repair of their own equipment.
