Stanley added to Alliant

The General Services Administration added a company to its Alliant contract that it initially passed on, the company said today.

Stanley and Associates, an information technology firm, bid on the major governmentwide acquisition contract, but was not one of the 29 companies awarded a spot July 31. Stanley was one of 37 companies that didn't receive an award notice.

Alliant is a five-year IT contract with a five-year option and a ceiling of $50 billion. Agencies can use the contract to buy IT applications, infrastructure and services. It provides streamlined access to a range of management and technical support services.

Phil Nolan, Stanley's chairman, president and chief executive officer, said in a statement that GSA has been an important part of the company's growth.

Stanley filed a protest Aug. 27 with the Government Accountability Office against GSA's awards. The company could not comment on the details of its protest because of its legal nature, a company spokeswoman said.

No other companies have been added to Alliant after making protests.

Seven companies filed protests over the awards. Along with Stanley, Client Network Services, Nortel Government Solutions, Advanced Technology Systems, the Centech Group and Artel each filed a protest. STG filed two protests, GAO said.

GAO said it dismissed all those protests because two companies took the issue to the U.S. Court of Federal Claims ? a standard procedure.
