Alliant 2 Small Business (A2SB)
This government-wide acquisition contract (GWAC) will allow federal agencies to acquire information technology services. A2SB is an important tool for federal agencies because it’s one of only four small-business governmentwide acquisition contracts (GWACs) available to federal agencies.
Due to a successful challenge in court, the General Services Administration (GSA) has rescinded all awards on the $15 billion Alliant 2 contract. This returns the contract to pre-award status.

The Common Approach to Federal Enterprise Architecture, released in May 2012 as part of the federal CIO’s policy guidance and management tools for increasing shared approaches to IT service delivery, presents an overall approach to developing and using Enterprise Architecture in the Federal Government. The Common Approach promotes increased levels of mission effectiveness by standardizing the development and use of architectures within and between Federal Agencies. This includes principles for using EA to help agencies eliminate waste and duplication, increase shared services, close performance gaps, and promote engagement among government, industry, and citizens.|
