Contract ceiling increase
GSA Boosts Alliant 2 Ceiling by $25B
The General Services Administration is raising the ceiling of the Alliant 2 contract from $50 billion to $75 billion. Alliant 2 is a contract vehicle that allows government agencies to procure customized IT services and solutions.
Sonny Hashmi, the commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, said there are already over 465 Alliant 2 task orders worth over $36 million, proving that the governmentwide acquisition contract is essential in meeting complex modernization and mission needs. He said raising the contract ceiling would allow government agencies to continue modernizing their systems.
Over 100 federal agencies use the GWAC to gain access to integrated IT solutions offered by more than 40 companies, GSA said.
Laura Stanton, the assistant commissioner for the GSA’s Office of Information Technology Category, said in addition to the ceiling increase, new subcontracting opportunities for small businesses have been added to Alliant 2. She noted that small businesses won over $1.3 billion in contracts through Alliant 2.
GSA is also continuing its work on the third iteration of the Alliant GWAC. Market research for Alliant 3 is underway, and the agency is expected to release a draft request for proposals for the contract vehicle in the first quarter of the fiscal year 2023.
