The small business portion of the contract vehicle is valued at a maximum $15 billion.

The federal government is likely to award around 80 companies a spot on a massive contracting system approving certain IT companies to sell to government.

Alliant 2, known as a “Government-Wide Acquisition Contract,” is managed by the General Services Administration. Last month, GSA made awards on its larger $50 billion IT GWAC, with a special emphasis on companies selling emerging technology such as artificial intelligence.

The Alliant 2 small business contracts are worth up to $15 billion, with a five-year base and five-year extension option. GSA on Thursday published a pre-award list of businesses likely to get a spot.

In contrast to previous iterations of Alliant, Alliant 2 companies were evaluated slightly differently. Bidders were asked to self-score their services, and contractors were judged not only based on their proposal and bid price, but also their capabilities, according to GSA.

The new system has drawn some ire from the private sector. Earlier this year, the Government Accountability Office sided with GSA on pre-award bid protests from companies who disagreed with the evaluation process. At least five companies filed protests with GAO after the awards were made, including Capgemini Government Solutions, Harris IT Services Corp., Compuline International,Kratos Technology & Training Solutions and The Centech Group.
