Federal agencies looking for IT services and to meet small business contracting goals now need over 160 hands to count their options. 

Approximately 502 qualified small businesses have joined the General Services Administration’s 8(a) Streamlined Technology Acquisition Resources for Services (STARS) II Governmentwide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) following its open season. This brings the total number of technology vendors participating to over 800.

The 8(a) STARS II GWAC, which has had over 3,200 task orders and $5.3 billion in sales since 2011, streamlines procurements in four functional areas: Custom Computer Programming Services (NAICS 541511); Computer Systems Design Services (NAICS 541512); Computer Facilities Management Services (NAICS 541513); and Other Computer Related Services (NAICS 541519).

The multiple-award, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract vehicle is available for directed orders through Aug. 30, 2021, with performance through Aug. 30, 2024

A complete list of awardees can be found on FedBizOpps.
