The General Services Administration plans to release the request for proposals regarding the Alliant 2 governmentwide acquisition contract and its small business component sometime in the second half of June.
GSA said Thursday that Alliant 2 and Alliant 2 Small Business contracting officers could also release two separate presolicitation announcements on the Federal Business Opportunities website at least 15 calendar days before the RFPs’ release.
The unofficial statement on the program schedule seeks to facilitate transparency in communication with industry and other interested parties and respond to various questions regarding the pending procurement.
Both GWACs are currently going through a review process as required following the release of the most recent draft RFP in October 2015, GSA said.
GSA notes that seven requests for information and two draft RFPs have been issued throughout the three-year procurement program along with market research, industry trade group appearances, face-to-face and one-on-one meetings, email questions and answers and other discussions.
He indicates further question-and-answer opportunities for industry will follow after the release of the official RFPs and before the receipt of submitted proposals.
