The General Services Administration (GSA) is re-awarding its 2nd Generation IT (2GIT) Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs) with estimated values of $5.5 billion over five years.
The 2GIT BPAs are being re-awarded to more than 70 industry partners, including more than 50 small businesses, and are available for use across the Federal government by all agencies. These BPAs provide a “reliable, flexible, fast, and efficient way to obtain best-value solutions for complex IT hardware requirements.”
Additionally, the 2GIT BPAs “deliver a streamlined process for purchasing IT hardware and software products and services through GSA Advantage! ®.”
“2GIT will deliver great value across the Federal government. It serves as an example of GSA developing IT solutions that cater to agencies’ current and future requirements with supply chain risk management as a key feature,” said GSA Assistant Commissioner of Information Technology Category Laura Stanton.
The BPAs support agencies with procurement policies and help incorporate best practices, including the collection of prices paid data, the ability to track savings, and reduction in costs and administrative burden.
“Increasing access for small businesses and under-served communities within Federal acquisition is an important goal for GSA,” said Federal Acquisition Service Commissioner Sonny Hashmi. “With the award of the 2GIT BPAs, we are proud to support multiple awardees from each of the small business categories: HUBZone, Woman-Owned, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned, and 8(a) businesses.”
