Hi James,
Thanks for the reply. The Bloomberg valuation and greeks are certainly correct. You seem to suggest that a price of 0.2215 for a long-dated, near-the-money expiry is somehow low. But the underlying is an interest rate future and the price here quoted is 22.15 ticks, or $553.75 per option (25$ tick value) on 1 million forward 3m libor deposit at 5.375 (100 - 94.625). Price vol (which here is the same as basis point rate vol) is 12.35% and a bp change in forward rate is worth 25$. Nothing unusual here.

Robert,
It seems unusual to me that a nearly at-the-money option with a year and a quarter left in it's life would only be worth $0.2215 according
to Bloomberg. I would double-check the calculations from Bloomberg.
To me, they seem most suspect. I'm wondering if you entered the time to expiration incorrectly on Bloomberg, because from the looks of the
Gamma and Vega, it looks like you might have entered a shorter time.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you figure this out.
