The General Services Administration has made its much-anticipated awards on the potential 10-year, $50 billion Alliant 2 contract for IT and professional services.
Sixty-one companies have made the cut for the Alliant 2 Unrestricted contract that contains a five-year base period and a five-year option, GSA disclosed in a FedBizOpps notice Friday. Alliant 2 Unrestricted is structured as a multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract.
That 61 number for winners is one more than GSA had previously indicated. Awards for the Alliant 2 Small Business track "will be announced separately in the near future," GSA said Friday on its Interact website. The agency anticipates 80 awards for the small business component with a $15 billion ceiling.
GSA released the Alliant 2 request for proposals in June 2016 after more than a year of deep discussions with industry about the contract's size, scope and other specifications. Proposals were submitted later that summer and GSA had anticipated it would make awards by the end of this year.
Pre-award protests created a delay but the Government Accountability Office ruled in GSA's favor in January of this year -- perhaps in a way that makes these awards final. Barring any protests on the new awards, the predecessor potential $15 billion Alliant 1 contract awarded in 2009 is slated to expire on April 30, 2019.
Of the 61 winners, 25 are new to the Alliant program and didn't hold positions on Alliant 1 or Alliant Small Business. Among the newcomers are CenturyLink, Maximus and ICF. Two companies in ECS Federal and Agile Defense Inc. moved up from Alliant Small Business.
Eighteen companies from Alliant 1 were not listed as winners of Alliant 2. But it is not known whether these companies bid and lost or did not bid at all.
