New database shows prices paid on Alliant contracts

The Federal Acquisition Service rolled out a new prices-paid database for Alliant and Alliant Small Business contractsthat lists up-to-date pricing information by agency, company, labor category and contract family and type.

The new tool was built as part of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy's new category management approach, which looks to consolidate all pertinent acquisition data into a single place, organized by topic.

As agencies design procurement strategies and issue RFPs, the prices-paid tool can give them perspective on what to expect from Alliant contractors.

"This data point can be invaluable in assisting contracting professionals to develop acquisition strategies and evaluating acquisition options," Mary Davie, assistant commissioner to the FAS Office of Integrated Technology Services, wrote in a Jan. 26 blog post announcing the new database. "Understanding prices paid and sharing that data across government is critical to reducing costs and making smarter decisions."

As with the Common Acquisition Platform prices-paid portal, the Alliant tool is only available to government employees.

Davie said the Alliant data will likely be released through the CAP website at some time in the future.
