Julie Dunne, commissioner of the General Services Administration’s (GSA) Federal Acquisition Service, said FAS is now moving forward with the e-commerce marketplace initiative after delaying the program during the first few weeks of the coronavirus pandemic, Federal News Network reported Friday.

She provided updates on the small business track of the $15 billion Alliant 2 contract vehicle for information technology services, which was awarded in December 2017.

Dunne said Alliant 2 is in the middle of litigation and that FAS hopes to share some developments in the next couple of weeks. “GSA’s leadership is fully committed to small business and making sure they are a part of our industrial base,” she added.

She noted that the assisted acquisition services pilot as part of the Small Business Innovation Research program is now permanent and helped expedite an award within the defense sector to address a supply chain risk management requirement.
