GSA details its Alliant strategy

The General Services Administration's strategy for its lucrative Alliant acquisition will include a contract for small businesses and a ceiling of $65 billion.

GSA has decided on two contracts. One'Alliant'is open to all bidders. A second one'Alliant Small Business'will be reserved for small business bidders.

The Alliant contracts consolidate six governmentwide vehicles: Access Certificates for Electronic Services, Applications 'N Support for Widely Diverse End-User Requirements (Answer), Disaster Recovery, Millennia, Safeguard and Virtual Data Center. These contracts were deemed to be redundant or were not used heavily enough to warrant a separate recompete.

Next month, GSA expects to submit its business case to the Office of Management and Budget for the two 10-year Alliant contracts, valued at $65 billion, and issue draft requests for proposals. Final RFPs will be issued this summer. The contracts will provide a full range of world-class IT solutions to federal agencies, GSA said.

GSA's Enterprise GWAC Center in San Diego manages the Alliant procurement. The Small Business GWAC Center in Kansas City, Mo., manages the Alliant Small Business procurement.
