Fiscal Year-End 2015 Wrap-up

Marc Vogtman / Sep 22, 2015

Government Product News picked up my fiscal year-end blog series this week, so thought it was a good time for a quick wrap up.

In previous posts​ I’ve covered the high-profile IDIQs that are in process for recompete or initial award. Today I wanted to call attention to some of the interesting, niche, and/or small business focused indefinite delivery vehicle procurements happening at year end. They are generally lower dollar value than those I've previously written about, but potentially impactful to their own market segments.

New IDIQ Awards at Fiscal Year End

Marc Vogtman / Jul 24, 2015

In couple of posts in this FY end series I’ve covered the re-competes of high profile indefinite delivery vehicles that are going on right now. In this post I want to highlight a few important,new IDIQs that are nearing award for the first time.

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.

Federal contracting professionals know that indefinite delivery vehicles (IDVs) can be the most valuable contracts to hold. They provide more predictable long-term revenue under a simplified procurement process, and with limited competition. As I’ve been covering trends related to the fiscal year end and the federal buying season, I though it would be useful to highlight the high profile IDV procurements that are ramping up or closing before September 30.

​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.

As part of our efforts to make the government procurement process easier to understand, we take a look at Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) seven-year, $22 billion, multi-award IQC vehicle.
