The General Services Administration issued a list of 80 small business contractors, including several from the capital region, that are considered to be frontrunners for the $15 billion small business version of the Alliant 2 IT contract.
The agency named the contractors in a pre-award notice Thursday on FedBizOpps, following up on last month’s announcement that 61 vendors had won bids for the larger IT contract, a “next-gen” update of the 10-year-old original Alliant contract.
The notice designates the companies as “apparently successful offerors” who are considered the highest technically-rated vendors providing a fair and reasonable price, but it is not considered a list of formal awardees.
The large contract award was met last week with a flurry of protests, which the Government Accountability Office are expected to rule on by March 2018.
It’s unclear whether the Alliant 2 Small Business contract — which includes a five-year base period and a five-year option — will see the same protest activity, but GSA officials have previously expressed hope that the contract would be able to move forward without significant resistance.
“We spent an extraordinary amount of time in the front-end of this process, working with our industry partners, as well as agencies, teasing out what we believe are a strong set of requirements and putting in place an assessment methodology. So we are comfortable that we followed a fair and strong process,” said Bill Zielinski, deputy assistant commissioner for IT category management operations, said in a Nov. 21 conference call with reporters.
