ABOUT VA PTSD BPA
The National Center for PTSD was created in 1989 within the Department of Veterans Affairs in response to a Congressional mandate (PL 98-528) to address the needs of Veterans with military-related PTSD. The mandate called for a center of excellence that would set the agenda for research and education on PTSD without direct responsibility for patient care.
The National Center for PTSD issues RFQs for task orders against this BPA. The task orders focus on creating training, mobile phone applications, and educational products on PTSD for Veterans and the general public as well as clinicians.
