WASHINGTON. The General Services Administration (GSA) -- the independent agency that manages and supports the basic functioning of U.S. federal agencies -- recently announced its long-awaited awards on the Alliant 2 governmentwide acquisition contract (GWAC) for IT services and service-based solutions.

The Alliant 2 Unrestricted contract -- a multiple-award, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity contract with a $50 billion program ceiling -- has a base period of five years and a five-year option.

GSA named 61 firms as part of the unrestricted GWAC, one more than the agency had originally said would be on the contract. Among the named firms that will be participating in the large contract are KeyW/Sotera Defense Solutions, BAE Systems Technology Solutions & Services, Booz Allen Hamilton, Lockheed Martin, Leidos, Raytheon, Northrop Grumman, and Vencore.
