The General Services Administration has raised the ceiling value of the $50 billion Alliant 2 governmentwide acquisition contract by an additional $25 billion to broaden opportunities for federal agency customers to access information technology platforms and services.
GSA said Wednesday the move brings the ceiling amount of the Alliant 2 GWAC to $75 billion.
“Alliant 2 has surpassed our expectations at every turn. With more than 465 task order awards exceeding $36 billion in estimated value already, it’s clear that this ceiling increase is critical to ensure consistent mission delivery for our customer agencies,” said Sonny Hashmi, commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service and a previous Wash100 Award winner.
Alliant 2 is a multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract offering artificial intelligence, robotic process automation, distributed ledger technology and other emerging technologies to federal agencies. Over 100 agencies have used the best-in-class GWAC, gaining access to more than 40 contractors that provide integrated IT platforms to help meet their changing tech requirements.
Laura Stanton, assistant commissioner for the office of IT category at GSA, said small businesses have secured more than $1.3 billion in awards through Alliant 2 and benefited from the contract through subcontracting opportunities.
GSA also has begun market research on the Alliant 3 contract and expects the draft request for proposals to be released in the first quarter of fiscal year 2023.
