Reimagine your acquisition strategies with help from The NIH Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center (NITAAC). With three streamlined Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs) for information technology (IT) products, services and solutions, and both direct and assisted acquisitions, NITAAC can help agencies develop new and innovative ways to satisfy mission critical IT demands.

As an executive agent of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NITAAC meets the highest quality standards in acquisition. And, our streamlined processes and procedures assure you can quickly purchase any technology at fair and reasonable prices on one of our three GWACs:

CIO-SP3 for IT Services/Solutions: With a $20 billion ceiling, get everything IT. Rates negotiated at the master contract level assure your agency is already starting with the most cost competitive rates. And, with competition, you can negotiate rates even lower.

CIO-SP3 Small Business for IT Services/Solutions: Never miss your small business competition goals with direct access to multiple small businesses operating in five socio-economic categories: Small Business,8(a), Service Disabled Veteran Owned, HUBZone, and Woman Owned.

CIO-CS for IT Commodities/Services:  Purchase commercial commodities and commodity-enabling services, such as cloud solutions and platform as a service, and benefit from Government-Wide Strategic Solutions (GSS) for the lowest prices on laptops and desktops.

Using a NITAAC GWAC is like having an agency specific contract without the expense of setting it up. The scopes are broad enough to encompass any IT requirement, the ceilings are high enough to accommodate the most complex enterprise solutions, and the contracts are flexible enough to accommodate any IT need.

NITAAC GWACs deliver significant benefits including:

•Streamlined ordering and procedures under FAR Subpart 16.505 save time, money and resources

•Secure, web-based fair opportunity competition management, award and notification through our electronic government ordering system (e-GOS)

•Customized terms/conditions and additional labor categories/services are easily added at the task/delivery order level

•Flexibility to support multiple contract types, agile development and CONUS/OCONUS procurements

•No protest on orders under $10 million except on the grounds that the order increases the scope, period or maximum value of the contract
