GSA awards GWAC for veteran-owned businesses

For 44 veteran-owned small businesses, the holiday season opened with a bang. The General Services Administration today announced the awards for its $5 billion, 10-year governmentwide acquisition contract for IT small businesses owned by service-disabled veterans.

Winners of the Veterans Technology Services contract will have the right to bid for work in one or two functional areas: systems operations and maintenance, and information systems engineering. Both include IT security.

GSA opened the indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract only to businesses owned by service-disabled veterans.

GSA developed the contract in partnership with the Veterans Affairs Department and the Small Business Administration.

The contract had been delayed for more than a year. GSA released the RFP in April 2005 and has been evaluating offers since. GSA had hoped to make awards last spring.
