About Alliant Small Business

200x200_1GSA’s Alliant Small Business (SB) is a multiple-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC). The Alliant SB contract offers all Federal agencies and authorized Federal contractors streamlined access to procure infrastructure and application support, IT management services and integrated IT solutions, while receiving small business credit.

ASB provides a rapid and easy method for procuring Information Technology (IT) services and solutions from pre-vetted small businesses. The vetting process for the ASB contract included financial responsibility, accounting system validation, security and clearances processes, ability to support CONUS and OCONUS work, and demonstrable past performance across a wide range of technologies.

This flexible contract assures agencies can select the right candidate within the desired timeframe, while retaining a large enough field of potential contractors to allow for appropriate competition. Through GSA, ASB offers complimentary scope-compatibility reviews to promote contract compliance and reduce procurement risk. In addition to Small Business Credit, by choosing a candidate under the GWAC vehicle, agencies also receive applicable socioeconomic credit. Customers using this contract vehicle have praised the GWAC procurement process, calling it “straightforward and easy to use”.

Alliant SB is a ten-year (five-year base period with a five-year option period) Small Business set-aside contract. Task orders can be issued as Time-and-Materials (T&M), Labor-Hour, and Firm Fixed Price (FFP), and may be competed as performance-based with incentives and disincentives. Alliant SB has a ceiling value of $15 billion.
