Consulting Firm BearingPoint Selected to Provide IT Services on the Multiple Award $50 Billion GSA Alliant Contract

BearingPoint, Inc., one of the world’s largest management and technology consulting companies, announced that the General Services Administration has awarded the company an Alliant contract to provide information technology solutions to federal agencies; BearingPoint was one of 59 firms to receive an award. Alliant, a 10-year multiple award indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity contract with a $50 billion ceiling, is the largest government-wide acquisition contract (GWAC) ever issued and will provide federal agencies with the opportunity to use competitive sourcing for regional and global IT services to improve efficiencies and maximize cost savings. The award features a five-year base and one five-year option, and replaces two older GSA GWACs (Answer and Millennia).

“GSA-Alliant presents BearingPoint with a tremendous opportunity to work hand-in-hand with the federal government, and it provides government agencies with the opportunity to work with a trusted partner,” said Robin Lineberger, executive vice president, Public Services for BearingPoint. “We look forward to providing GSA and other federal agencies with innovative and practical management, technology and enterprise solutions that will enable them to reduce costs and streamline operations.”

The scope of GSA’s Alliant GWAC covers all components of an integrated IT solution, including any current and new technologies which may emerge during the life of the contract as well as IT systems, products and services in support of national security systems. As a provider of management and technology consulting services, BearingPoint provides a full range of client solutions combined with deep industry knowledge to provide sustainable results for our clients.
