GSA ready to take over Commerce's governmentwide contract

The General Services Administration and the Commerce Department have agreed in principle to give GSA ownership of Commerce's Information Technology Services Next Generation contract, according to government and industry sources. A formal agreement had not been signed at press time, and the the deal still must be approved by the Office of Management and Budget.

The governmentwide acquisition contract, known as COMMITS, was awarded in 2004 as a small-business set-aside, and has a ceiling of $8 billion over 10 years.

The agreement, if approved, would be a victory for GSA administrator Lurita Doan, who has campaigned against the 'proliferation of GWACs' in the government.
