In a press release earlier this week, Skyline Medical Inc announced that it is signing a letter of intent to form a joint venture with Electronic On-Ramp Inc, which is a Native American Indian certified Small Disadvantaged Business owned by a Service Disabled Veteran. Electronic On-Ramp Inc has contracts with the U.S. National Institutes of Health and Department of Defense which are expected to give Skyline Medical Inc the chance to bid on procurement contracts of up to $550 million in federal funds budgeted for health, security, life safety systems support, humanitarian assistance and disaster preparedness.

We are very excited to enter into this new joint venture with EOR as it provides access to significant federal, state and local funds some 18 months ahead of Skyline’s previous plan, and advances our strategy to increase our operating room footprint,” said Dr. Carl Schwartz, Interim CEO of Skyline Medical Inc.

He added that the companies will work together to add contract vehicles specifically targeting environmental services and medical devices.
