The General Services Administration awarded 72 companies a place on the $15 billion Alliant small business governmentwide acquisition contract.
GSA posted the winning vendors on FedBizopps.gov today.
The agency expects to award the large business version of Alliant–which is worth $50 billion–early in 2009, GSA said last week.
The agency had awarded the both contracts in August 2007, but they came under protest. GSA decided to reopen bids on the contracts and after more than a year, made the first set of awards to small businesses.
