The General Services Administration (GSA) announced today that the agency is increasing the ceiling of its Alliant 2 customized IT services contract by $25 billion, to a new ceiling of $75 billion.
The Alliant 2 governmentwide acquisition contract (GWAC) provides Federal agencies with access to more than 40 different companies offering integrated IT services and service-based solutions for evolving needs worldwide.
“Alliant 2 has surpassed our expectations at every turn,” said GSA Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) Commissioner Sonny Hashmi. “With more than 465 task order awards exceeding $36 billion in estimated value already, it’s clear that this ceiling increase is critical to ensure consistent mission delivery for our customer agencies.”
“The Alliant GWAC has again proven itself to be a go-to IT service contract to meet the complex IT modernization and mission needs of the government,” Hashmi said.
GSA also said today that it expects to release a draft request for proposals on its Alliant 3 contract during the first quarter of fiscal year 2023, which ends on Dec. 31, 2022. “GSA is hard at work on Alliant 3,” GSA said. “Market research is well underway, Alliant 3 has been approved…”
Laura Stanton, Assistant Commissioner for the Office of Information Technology Category at GSA, said that the Alliant 2 ceiling increase, “combined with the team’s efforts on Alliant 3, should signal loud and clear to our customers and industry partners that we are committed to ensuring the Alliant program remains the contract of choice for federal IT well into the future.”
“Further, this also benefits small businesses through additional subcontracting opportunities,” Stanton said. “Small businesses have already won more than $1.3B on Alliant 2, substantially surpassing small business subcontracting dollars won on the original Alliant contract at this same point in the contract’s life.”
