Contract Vehicles

Penobscot Health Services, LLC (PHS) is an SBA-certified 8a and HUBZone Tribal-Owned Small Business serving both federal and commercial customers. PHS will also be applying soon to get on the GSA Schedule for:

  • 621 I Professional & Allied Healthcare Staffing Services
  • 03FAC Facilities Maintenance & Management

MBE/DBE certification in Maine is pending. We are also preparing to expand to other states under the DBE/MBE vehicle.

Since opening in 2016, we have focused our efforts in Total Small Business opportunities. However, our attaining 8(a) and HUBZone status the past few years has broadened our business development focus. With the ability to reduce acquisition lead times, competition and associated costs, we pursue opportunities under these contract vehicles to build and expand the company. We will also seriously consider teaming, if a prospective partner complements our capabilities and places the team in the best position to capture a specific award.  

To date, we have worked with a wide variety of federal agencies. We track and follow the contract needs of many other agencies. We are ready and able to perform throughout most of the United States and certain territories. With our successful past performance, we believe this shows potential customers we can provide quality services at best value in most agency environments.

Customer Agencies include:

  • U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
  • US. Environmental Protection Agency 
  • Indian Health Services
  • Bureau of Indian Education, Flandreau, ND
  • U.S. Army, National Guard
  • Federal Aviation Administration
  • U.S. Veterans Administration VAMC
  • U.S. Army, Ft. Drum, NY
  • U.S. Bureau of Reclamations, Grand Coulee, WA

Relevant to the contract vehicles we utilize, we strongly urge readers to review the advantages a small business, owned by a tribal corporation, has over other small businesses in federal contracting.
