AFICC oversees Covid relief efforts as part of DAF ACT, awards contract for critical test kit materials

The Air Force Installation Contracting Center is overseeing the execution of billions of dollars in COVID-19 relief, with a recent contract award providing critical materials used in the production of rapid, point-of-care COVID-19 test kits.

This contract award enables the production of more than 83 million test kits a month, including those now available to the American public.

“The awards and contract vehicles our team has executed ensure that DoD (Defense Department) is postured expeditiously to support the Department of Health and Human Services and the administration’s efforts to defeat this disease and safeguard our nation from future pandemics,” said Brig. Gen. Alice Trevino, AFICC commander and director of the Department of the Air Force Acquisition COVID Taskforce, or DAF ACT.
