Question:

How will the Alliant 2 (A2) and Alliant 2 Small Business (A2SB) GWACs differ from OASIS?

Answer:

The Alliant family of GWACs is for Information Technology (IT) and the OASIS family of contracts is for Professional Services.  That said both contract families offer integrated solutions that may include components of IT or Professional Services.  For example, OASIS may include IT only to the extent that it is an integral and necessary support component for the professional service based requirement.   Conversely, Alliant may include a professional service component to the extent it is an integral and necessary support component to the IT service based requirement.

<p>While the NAIC for information technology is being planned, please consider design, construction, and building operation activities.&nbsp; Historically the GSA has lead the feild in providing analog (paper) documention.&nbsp; The specs for building construction did a great job in defining what the contractors needed to provide.&nbsp; The specs also were explicit on what to do with information, including paper tags wired to specific equipment.&nbsp;&nbsp; Times have changed.</p><p>We are designing, building, and operating facilities with digital tools.&nbsp; Our information authoring, sharing and accessing needs NAIC codes that recognize companies that offer these services.&nbsp; Additionally the GSA needs to incorporate these digital tools and services into the plans and specs of new projects and building renovations.&nbsp; These tools need to be commercially available and easy for all participants to use.&nbsp; There is no need to re-invent the wheel.</p>
