The agency made some swaps on the $15 billion sister to Alliant 2 Unrestricted since the pre-award notice.
The General Services Administration officially announced the awardees for the Alliant 2 Small Business contract vehicle, dropping three contractors since the pre-award notice in December but adding four more.
The 10-year $15 billion contract gives agencies access to pre-vetted IT services companies—versus the IT commodities on IT Schedule 70. The vehicle is the small business companion to the $50 billion Alliant 2 Unrestricted which was awarded in November.
GSA officials intended to award 80 spots on the small business vehicle but allowed for a tie in the final position bringing the total to 81. Almost 500 small businesses vied for the spots.
Of the 80 pending awardees in the pre-award notice in December three did not make the final cut: AEEC, Avineon, and Superlative Technologies dba SuprTEK.
The removals made room for four other small businesses: Atlas, Product Data Integration Technologies dba Modulant, SNAP and The Informatics Applications Group. All four awards are pending as their small business designation “still subject to contracting officer size challenge at the Small Business Administration” for five days after the award notice, according to said notice.
GSA is waiting to give the notice to proceed until any potential challenges are resolved. If any of the four companies are removed from Alliant 2 Small Business those spots will not be backfilled, according to GSA.
“As IT modernization takes center stage in the administration’s drive to create a more efficient and effective government GSA’s Alliant contracts will continue to be an important tool for agencies looking to enhance and improve their IT operations in service of American taxpayers,” Federal Acquisition Service Commissioner Alan Thomas said.
Kay Ely, assistant commissioner of the Office of Information Technology Category, agreed, touting GSA’s collaboration with agencies and industry in crafting the second generation of Alliant.
“These partnerships have been in place for years and have provided GSA with valuable feedback that helped build and refine the next-generation Alliant program—ensuring that we deliver precisely what agencies want and need,” she said. “These solutions provide a solid foundation to address growing needs to modernize the government’s IT infrastructure implement leading-edge technology solutions and enable improved service to our citizens.”
