Bloomberg Government: GSA Cancels Alliant 2 SB, Hints at New Approach

“The General Services Administration is canceling its proposed 10-year, $15 billion Alliant 2 Small Business contract nearly a year after announcing it would accept new proposals and reconsider awardees for the vehicle.”

“The long-delayed contract was beset by protests that prevented it from getting off the ground. GSA made 81 Alliant 2 SB (A2SB) awards in February 2018, about two years after originally accepting bids. In March of last year, however, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims upheld contract protests and enjoined GSA from proceeding with awards until it resolved inconsistencies with the evaluation of bidders’ cost accounting systems and prices. GSA had aimed to restart the selection process, but the plan never materialized.”

8(a) STARS III and Other IT Alternative Vehicles

“GSA is encouraging agencies to consider migrating their immediate small-business information technology (IT) requirements to other GSA vehicles.”

“The agency today released the final request for proposal for 8(a) STARS III, which ‘will include a greater focus on emerging technologies’ and have a $50 billion ceiling. GSA also raised the ceiling on the existing second iteration to $22 billion after reaching the original $15 billion ceiling earlier than expected.”

“Agencies seeking a replacement small-business contract face no shortage of alternatives and can also use the IT portion of the Multiple Award Schedule (formerly IT Schedule 70), 8(a) STARS, and VETS II. Other agencies’ IT vehicles, such as HHS’s CIO-SP3 Small Business and NASA’s SEWP V, are also widely used to fulfill small-business procurement goals…” Read the full article here.
