NACON President, John Sciandra expressed his enthusiasm for the award saying “We anticipate this to be our contract vehicle of choice. I am confident that the efforts of the SBD Alliant partnership will allow us to expand our service offerings by leveraging the combined capabilities of the members in ways that will significantly benefit our customer base. We are an extremely consumer oriented organization and all of the partners have the same customer support ethic. Because the Alliant RFP preferred joint ventures of small businesses, the GSA has demonstrated that they are not only keeping up with the times, but that they have created a concept about small businesses that is very relevant to the new world of IT”.
SBD Alliant will enable the GSA to provide federal agencies with a centralized source to obtain a broad range of integrated information technology solutions worldwide. In addition, the program has a combined client base spanning over 45 Federal agencies and over two dozen marketing professionals and consultants with recognized industry relationships to promote the vehicle. Furthermore, the enterprise will supply an efficient platform for acquiring a broad range of complex and standard technical support and management services while increasing contract opportunities for small businesses, as well as aiding Federal agencies to accomplish their small business procurement requirements.
“We expect, added Sciandra, “that our joint venture will demonstrate the substantial capabilities of small businesses. The SBD partnership makes us stronger and more responsive than the traditional perception of larger more monolithic businesses. SBD Alliant members have new ideas, vast experience and the energy to beat the traditional models of contracting that our customers are used to with single large corporations. With our combined and diverse recruiting capabilities we can rival any larger organization in recruitment, retention and hiring the best and brightest. We learned it from our big brothers and now we are ready to show that the student has surpassed the teacher.”
