The next generation of the General Services Administration’s IT services governmentwide acquisition contracts (GWACs) — Alliant 2 Unrestricted and Alliant 2 Small Business — promise to be the largest IT services contracts of the next decade. They are being awarded through an innovative new IDIQ evaluation methodology and contain several features that could be transformational in IDIQ management. For government buyers, this class will provide an understanding of how Alliant 2 may fit in their contract portfolios. For industry, this class will provide a basic overview to help inform bidding decisions.
During this session:
- Attendees will learn how Alliant 2 will be structured during the evaluation period and the ordering period.
- Attendees will gain an understanding of the likely order flow through the new contracts.
- Attendees will get information that can help them evaluate whether they will use the contracts in the future (government) or whether they should bid on the contracts (industry)
