GSA Looks to Add CMMC Requests in Alliant 2 IT Contract’s Replacement
Centralize Procurement Ops

The General Services Administration (GSA) is planning to incorporate requirements under the Department of Defense’s (DoD) Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) program into a governmentwide contract that will replace the Alliant 2 vehicle.

GSA previously included CMMC language in a previously issued request for proposals and is looking to add the requirements in the Polaris small business contract for information technology support, FCW reported Wednesday.

Carlton Shufflebarger, acting director of the Office of IT Category at GSA, said at a recent AFCEA event that his office seeks to renew focus on cybersecurity as emerging concepts like 5G are being rolled out.

“DoD is one of our most valued customers,” he said. “We place great importance and priority on meeting their needs. So we wanted to insure that our contracts meet DoD's needs today and in the future, as well as other agencies."
