The General Services Administration has released its request for proposals for the Veterans Technology Services Governmentwide Acquisition Contract, which aims to steer federal IT work to service-disabled veteran-owned small businesses.
Task orders under the contract would support daily operations, infrastructure, antiterrorism efforts and emerging technologies, GSA said in its posting
yesterday at FedBizOpps.
The Vets GWAC, which is a multiple-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract, has a base of five years and five one-year options and is potentially worth up to $5 billion. The minimum guaranteed contract amount is $2,500. GSA's Federal Supply Center's Small Business GWAC center is managing the contract.
Functional areas of the contract are systems operation and maintenance, including configuration management and licensing, system architecture and computer security services; and systems engineering, such as business process re-engineering, managed e-authentication, and security certification and accreditation.
Proposals are due June 3.
