Every federal agency can utilize NITAAC GWACs


NITAAC is the NIH’s Information Technology Acquisition and Assessment Center. Based on our experience and ability to leverage buying power, NITAAC was designated by the OMB as an executive agent authorized to administer government-wide acquisition contracts (GWACs). These contracts were specifically designed to streamline the procurement process for information technology (IT) products and services, pursuant to Section 5112e of the Clinger Cohen Act of 1996.

NITAAC GWACs are available to all federal civilian and DoD agencies. Prices have been pre-competed and pre-negotiated for below market pricing, so customers are assured of real value in a competitive IT market. We are the only executive agent with three GWACs for products, services and solutions, enabling us to deliver a broad scope of mission critical IT with confidence.
