The General Services Administration's strategy for its Alliant acquisition will include a contract for small businesses and a $65 billion ceiling.
GSA has decided on two contracts. The main Alliant deal will be open to all bidders. The second, Alliant Small Business, will be reserved for small vendors.
The Alliant contracts will consolidate six governmentwide deals: Access Certificates for Electronic Services, Applications 'N Support for Widely Diverse End-User Requirements, Disaster Recovery, Millennia, Safeguard and Virtual Data Center.
Next month, the General Services Administration expects to submit its business case to the Office of Management and Budget for the two 10-year contracts and issue draft requests for proposals.
Agency officials said they plan to issue the final RFPs this summer.
