GSA increases Alliant 2 ceiling
The U.S. General Services Administration is increasing the ceiling of its Alliant 2 contract by $25 billion, bringing the ceiling to $75 billion, GSA announced August 17.
Alliant 2 is GSA’s premier enterprise Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) which provides customized information technology (IT) services and IT services-based solutions to the federal government. As a best-in-class contract, Alliant 2 provides agencies with access to more than 40 companies offering integrated IT solutions for evolving needs worldwide. Alliant 2 allows for the application of technology to meet business needs, including the ability to stay on the forefront of emerging IT services. More than 100 federal agencies have used Alliant 2.
“Alliant 2 has surpassed our expectations at every turn. With more than 465 task order awards exceeding $36 billion in estimated value already, it’s clear that this ceiling increase is critical to ensure consistent mission delivery for our customer agencies,” said GSA Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) Commissioner Sonny Hashmi. “The Alliant GWAC has again proven itself to be a go-to IT service contract to meet the complex IT modernization and mission needs of the government.”
“This increase, combined with the team’s efforts on Alliant 3, should signal loud and clear to our customers and industry partners that we are committed to ensuring the Alliant program remains the contract of choice for federal IT well into the future.” said Laura Stanton, Assistant Commissioner for the Office of Information Technology Category. “Further, this also benefits small businesses through additional subcontracting opportunities. Small businesses have already won more than $1.3B on Alliant 2, substantially surpassing small business subcontracting dollars won on the original Alliant contract at this same point in the contract’s life.”
In addition to increasing the ceiling on Alliant 2, GSA is at work on Alliant 3. Market research is well underway, Alliant 3 has been approved, and the release of the draft Request for Proposals is slated for Q1, FY23.
