Using Alliant 2 allows for access to high qualified industry partners and GSA personnel that can help tailor your requirement to get the most out of the contract vehicle.
Alliant 2 is an enhanced follow-on to Alliant. Alliant 2 incorporates all of Alliant’s best features described above plus the following new highlights:
GWACs are for information technology (IT) services and IT services-based solutions. Ordering contracting officers may include ancillary services and equipment on orders as long as the ancillary support is integral and necessary for the IT services-based solution.
If you want to buy IT products or services only, MAS Information Technology is the best contract vehicle.
Read the Alliant 2 Ordering Guide for helpful instructions on how to use Alliant.

GSA will review your task order or modification requirements free of charge to make sure the scope of your task order is compatible with the scope of our GWACs — we call this a scope compatibility review, and it takes approximately two to five business days.
No. Alliant 2 cannot support the establishment of a BPA. However, flexible CLIN structures and optional CLINs can be utilized and tailored to your requirement. Please contact the A2 Program Office for more detailed information.
