Federal Manager's Daily Report

The GSA has announced the award of its Second Generation Information Technology (2GIT) blanket purchase agreements for IT hardware and software purchases to 75 companies, replacing the expiring NETCENTS-2 IT Products contracts. The estimated value is $5.5 billion over five years.

“2GIT provides access to a comprehensive set of IT products and services from pre-vetted industry partners and includes supply chain risk management assurances, as well as complimentary on-site and virtual customer support and training,” GSA said. “The 2GIT BPAs support agencies in meeting current procurement policies and incorporate best practices such as the collection of prices paid-data, the ability to track savings, and reduction in costs and administrative burden.”

The supply chain risk management components “ensure processes and reporting are in place to reduce the risk of compromise throughout the supply chain,” it added.
