digital-governmentThe General Services Administration has issued its formal requests for bids on two governmentwide information technology acquisition contracts with a combined total ceiling of $50 billion over 10 years.

GSA said Monday it will accept industry proposals for the Alliant 2 and Alliant 2 Small Business contracts through Aug. 29.

“The Alliant team at GSA has worked diligently to engage with stakeholders on a transparent, collaborative and interactive process, including both federal agency and industry partner involvement during the pre-solicitation phase, ” noted Mary Davie, assistant commissioner of GSA’s Office of Integrated Technology Services.

Alliant 2 contracts also incorporate Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement regulations and provisions that GSA says will automatically apply to all task orders coming from the Defense Department.
