Frequently Asked Questions
How can companies be added to a NITAAC GWAC?
Companies cannot be added as Prime contract holders once the master contract has been awarded. However, if a company is interested in performing under one of the NITAAC vehicles, they may do so as a subcontractor or teaming partner. Businesses interested in forming such agreements may go directly to any of the NITAAC Prime contract holder(s). A complete listing is available under each contract on the NITAAC website. Simply click the contract of choice in the main navigation bar at the top of the page, and select the "Contract Holders" link.
Are NITAAC GWACs only for IT products and services?
Yes. Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs) Yes. Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs) were designed exclusively to streamline federal procurement of Information Technology (IT).
What is the difference between direct and assisted acquisitions?
In a direct acquisition, the requesting agency places an order directly against the Indefinite Delivery Vehicle (the GWAC). NITAAC ensures that all GWAC awardees receive fair opportunity to compete, and in the pre-award phase, NITAAC will assess the SOW, primarily checking for scope issues. Requesting agencies must be prepared to take on the various responsibilities in the acquisition lifecycle from planning and order execution to contract administration. While NITAAC manages the GWAC, we do not participate in administration of the task/delivery order after award. In an assisted acquisition, the servicing agency and requesting agency enter into an Interagency Agreement, pursuant to which the servicing agency performs acquisition activities on behalf of the requesting agency such as awarding the contract, task order or delivery order.
