April 13, 2021  –  Cardinal Health was awarded a $57.8 million contract – including options that, if exercised by HHS, could reach $91.6 million – for the storage and distribution of 80,000 pallets of personal protective equipment (PPE) to support the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS), part of the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response within HHS.
