This document is a Class Justification for Other Than Full and Open Competition (JOFOC), prepared in accordance with the requirements of Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 6.302. The action being approved is to increase the maximum contract ceiling of the Alliant 2 GWAC to meet the continuing urgent need of the Federal Government through a highly vetted pool of contractors ready to provide governmentwide Information Technology (IT) services. This urgent need arose due to the unexpected soaring demand for IT services arising from the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, and cyber related attacks to public and private institutions in the United States of America. The list of contracts that are part of the Alliant 2 GWAC is attached to this JOFOC.
This action is authorized by FAR 6.302-2, which states full and open competition need not be provided due to unusual and compelling urgency
