GSA RFI for STARS IT Small Business Contract

On Aug. 9, the General Services Administration sent out a request for information for the next phase of its government wide IT acquisition contract for small business vendors or Streamlined Technology Acquisition Resource for Services (STARS). 
 
The Draft Solicitation synopsized the STARS programs as part of their Governmentwide Acquisition Contract by saying “GSA’s GWACs provide the federal government access to a wide range of information technology (IT) services-based solutions. Like the current 8(a) STARS II GWAC, 8(a) STARS III will enable the federal government to obtain IT services-based solutions from highly qualified 8(a) program participants.
 
Although prime contractors under GSA’s 8(a) Streamlined Technology Acquisition Resource for Services contract consist of small businesses, or 8(a), contractors, the STARS vehicle is considered by industry experts as an entry-level contract to get new innovative IT services vendors into the agency’s acquisition channels and grow their businesses.
 
STARS has a ceiling of $20 billion over its five-year base period, with one three-year option, and will incorporate dozens of small business vendors, according to GSA. Stars II has a $10 billion ceiling over 10 years.
 
GSA said the ordering period for the current STARS II contract will end Aug. 30, 2021. The deadline for input on the STARS III RFI is Sept. 6.
