Alliant Small Business Industry Partners
Who is on Alliant Small Business?
Use the Alliant Small Business Industry Partner [Excel - 94KB, 4/15/2016] spreadsheet to learn about or contact industry partners. Due to the size re-representation in FAR 52.219-28, some Alliant Small Business prime contractors are no longer coded in the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS-NG) as a "Small Business" concern on the GWAC. During the Alliant Small Business option period, beginning February 3, 2014, only those primes identified as Small Businesses can compete as prime contractors for new task order awards, assuring small business credit for the task order award. In certain circumstances, any Alliant Small Business prime can be awarded a task order during the option, provided an exception to a fair opportunity to be considered is justified and implemented. See Alliant Small Business GWAC Option FAQ [PDF - 12.7KB, 2/3/2014] for more information.
You can use these email addresses to provide fair opportunity to be considered in accordance with FAR 16.505, unless you use an exception for fair opportunity in FAR 16.505(b)(2)(i). You can also issue task orders directly through eBuy, or by working with GSA's Assisted Acquisition Services.
