- U.S. government agencies now have a better option when selecting a medical transcription firm -

SANTA CRUZ, CA (May 21, 2009) – VIVA Transcription, a leading provider in medical transcription services, announced that it has successfully completed the process of becoming an approved General Services Administration (GSA) Federal Supply Schedule vendor.

“We are thrilled that the GSA has approved our application to participate in the bidding for medical dictation and transcription services to federal agencies,” stated Manuel Prado, CEO of VIVA Transcription. “As an authorized vendor listed on the Federal Supply Schedule, we now can offer the United States government alternatives when they are selecting qualified vendors for transcription services.”

Under the GSA Schedules (also referred to as Multiple Award Schedules and Federal Supply Schedules) Program, the GSA establishes long-term government-wide contracts with commercial firms to provide access to over eleven million top-quality products and services that can be ordered directly from GSA Schedule contractors or through the GSA online shopping and ordering system. GSA Schedules also offer the potential benefits of shorter lead-times and lower administrative costs.

“In these challenging economic times, government agencies at all levels are looking for opportunities to trim their operating costs. VIVA Transcription’s competitive rates and quality services now give the U.S government a better option when they look for medical transcription companies to fulfill their service requirements. Whether it is the three levels of quality control we employ, the ability to immediately locate past transcripts by keyword search, or our affordability, we are confident that government agencies will benefit from selecting VIVA Transcription as their GSA-approved medical transcription service provider,” added Prado.
