More comment sought on Alliant procurement

The General Services Administration has extended through the end of the month the deadline for comments on how the agency can define and attract medium-sized businesses to its long-awaited Alliant IT services procurement vehicle.

In a recent notice, GSA extended the comment date on the request for information until March 31.

GSA released the RFI early last month in hopes of finding ways to attract medium-sized businesses to participate in Alliant as well to ensure that the contract delivers "best in class" solutions for its agency customers.

Alliant is a 10-year, two-part contract that will let all government agencies buy IT solutions and complex integration services, and replace the expiring Millennia and Applications and Support for Widely Diverse End User Requirements contracts for governmentwide IT services.

The contract consists of a $50 billion full and open procurement, which is geared toward large IT companies and systems integrators, and a $15 billion Alliant Small Business procurement.
