Alliant 2 SB Teaming Requirements

Alliant 2 Small Business Teaming Requirements Are Likely to Be Relaxed Significantly

The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) requires agencies to evaluate the past performance and qualifications of team members and JV partners during the solicitation process. The GSA VETS 2 GWAC draft RFP had "small business unfriendly" teaming requirements and the requirements were relaxed in the final VETS 2 RFP.

GSA changed the teaming requirements in the final RFP for VETS 2. The new requirements allowed:

  • Small businesses to form new joint ventures
  • Bidders to count the experience of subcontractors if they are using a Contract Teaming Agreement (CTA).
  • Small businesses to submit a proposal as a prime contractor and join another team as a subcontractor.

A company would now be able to form a JV or a CTA with a company or companies with complementary points that would increase the odds of selection. Most bidding partners will likely contribute relevant experience or leading edge technology points, not accounting, certification, or clearance points.

The impact of the change in teaming requirements will be significant. Companies will have to carefully consider how to form the right team to increase their chances of winning.

Companies should act now because team formation takes time and the Alliant 2 RFP is complex in its experience requirements and scoring scheme.
