Washington D.C. – The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) today issued Requests for Proposals (RFPs) for two 10-year, government-wide acquisition contracts (GWACs) to be named Alliant and Alliant Small Business (SB). They are collectively valued at $65 billion and will provide a wide array of information technology services to Federal agencies.
The RFPs are available on the Federal Business Opportunities Web site (http://www.fedbizopps.com). Proposals are due November 17, 2006, and GSA expects to award contracts in summer 2007.
"The Alliant and Alliant Small Business GWACs demonstrate GSA’s commitment, as the premier federal acquisition agency, to provide federal agencies with the business solutions they need to fulfill their important missions," said John C. Johnson, GSA’s Acting Assistant Commissioner of the Integrated Technology Service. "To the best of our knowledge, the Alliant SB GWAC is the largest federal contract set-aside for small businesses."
The Alliant GWAC has a maximum value of $50 billion, and the Alliant SB GWAC has a maximum value of $15 billion. GSA expects to make up to 30 Alliant and up to 60 Alliant SB awards. The Alliant GWACs provide a wide array of information technology services, from anti-terrorism initiatives and infrastructure support to development and marketing of evolving technologies, and more.

GSA is a centralized, federal procurement, property management, policy development and information provision agency, created by Congress to improve government efficiency and help federal agencies better serve the public. In this role, GSA acquires products and services on behalf of federal agencies; plays a key role in developing and implementing government-wide policies; provides services and solutions for the office operations of more than one million federal workers; and encourages a citizen-centric relationship with government by providing a single "point of entry" to the information and services citizens need in a timeframe they can appreciate. This allows citizens to receive accurate, timely and consistent answers and information, and helps federal agencies better respond to citizen inquiries.
