The General Services Administration is soliciting feedback on a draft request for proposals for the third iteration of the Alliant governmentwide acquisition contract that federal agency customers can use to procure information technology platforms and services.
The Alliant 3 GWAC supports Agile and other IT development methodologies and includes IT service-based support of national security systems, according to a sources sought notice published Wednesday.
The contract vehicle includes 3D printing integration, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, biometrics, cybersecurity, digital government, distributed ledger, digital process automation, internet of things, quantum computing, robotic process automation, software development, web analytics, secure access service edge and zero trust networks, among other IT services.
GSA will require the contractor to provide infrastructure, applications and IT management services to support agencies’ integrated IT requirements.
“Infrastructure includes hardware, software, licensing, technical support, and warranty services from third party sources, as well as technological refreshment and enhancements for that hardware and software,” the draft solicitation reads.
According to the draft solicitation, the scope of work of Alliant 3 is aligned with the Federal Enterprise Architecture Framework and the Department of Defense Information Enterprise Architecture to ensure that users have access to the entire spectrum of emerging and existing IT services, products, ancillary services and personnel needed to meet their agencies’ missions.
Comments on the draft RFP are due Jan. 6.
In August, GSA announced that the ceiling value of Alliant 2 was increased to $75 billion to expand opportunities for federal clients to access IT platforms and services.
