Summary: Enterprise Architecture (EA) supports planning and decision-making through documentation and information that provides an abstracted view of an enterprise at various levels of scope and detail. 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.

Similar to Alliant Small Business, this next-generation GWAC will include:

  • A highly qualified pool of industry partners;
  • A robust scope aligned with the Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA) and Department of Defense Enterprise Architecture (DoDEA);
  • Access to a full range of comprehensive IT services and IT services-based solutions;
  • Flexibility as emerging technologies and the definition of IT evolve;
  • Ancillary support (non-IT) permitted when it is integral to, and necessary for, the IT services-based outcome;
  • Open Season provision to competitively award to additional highly qualified IT contractors;
  • A full spectrum of contract types, including cost reimbursement;
  • Worldwide coverage; and
  • Complimentary scope-compatibility reviews.

Our goal is to build off of the success of Alliant Small Business, and create a contract vehicle that provides a total solution to agencies’ requirements while maximizing opportunities for small businesses.

Scope: Provide Federal Government agencies with integrated Information Technology (IT) solutions for evolving needs on a global basis. This Master Contract allows for the application of technology to meet business needs including the ability to perform all current, leading edge and/or emerging IT services required to satisfy all IT services requirements anywhere and anytime worldwide. All IT development methodologies, including Agile which is an encouraged methodology, are supported.
