The Alliant 2 solicitation is out. Now what?

Alan Birchler De Allende / Jul 5, 2016

It's difficult to overstate how important Alliant 2 is for IT sector companies. Having access to opportunities under Alliant 2, while not a guarantee of success in federal contracting, may be a baseline prerequisite for it.

This is Part 2 of a blog post about high profile indefinite delivery vehicle (IDV) re-compete procurements that are ramping up or completing at fiscal year end. (You can find Part 1 here.) In this post, I highlight three more IDV procurements - STARS II, ESD II, and WPS 2. Let’s dive right in.

​Alliant launched in 2009 with two tracks. GSA awarded Alliant contracts to 57 companies (mostly large businesses) on the standard track, and to 68 registered small businesses on the small business track. In this final installment of our Alliant series, I'm going to dig in to the activity of Alliant Small Business.

​In part 1, I covered the big picture with regard to the way agencies and vendors are using Alliant. In this post I'm going a little further into the weeds. We know that some agencies are using this GWAC to award huge, multi-year task orders. But which agencies? And what kinds of task orders?

Today I'm beginning a short series on Alliant – GSA's flagship, $50 billion governmentwide acquisition contract (GWAC) for IT solutions. Guess what you don't know about how these limited competition vehicles.
