Colorado Staffing Agency One of 36 U.S. Agencies Chosen for Defense Health Agency $7.5B Healthcare Staffing Contract

Denver-based Matrix Providers will bid on right to place healthcare workers in government treatment facilities throughout the United States


Denver, Colo. — Denver-based staffing firm Matrix Providers was selected by the Defense Health Agency (DHA) as one of 36 staffing companies for a five-year, $7.5 billion contract to provide health care workers at U.S. territory military treatment facilities. The contract ordering period is through November 20, 2022 for work that will take place through 2027.

This is a multiple award contract, which means that a limited number of awardee companies will compete among each other on performance and price to win work under the contract.

DHA offered the contract through a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to small businesses. The 36 small business awardees will provide physicians, nurses, dental and other health care employees to support medical care at Army, Navy, Air Force and DHA military treatment facilities (MTFs) in all 50 states, as well as Washington, D.C., Guam and Puerto Rico throughout the contract duration.

“Matrix Providers already has a presence in 90 percent of the locations that may require services under the contract,” said Dr. Bill Rivard, CEO and founder of Matrix Providers. “We encourage job seekers to frequently visit our website and view our current job openings. We are proud to offer our healthcare workers the opportunity for seamless accessibility or transition to career opportunities throughout the country under the new DHA contract.”
