“Knowesis, Inc. (Knowesis) was awarded the General Services Administration (GSA)’s Streamlined Technology Acquisition Resource for Services (STARS) III GWAC. This is Knowesis’ second STARS contract as an alumni of the STARS II vehicle. The award is effective August 1, 2021 through July 31, 2026.”
“STARS III is a GWAC (multiple-award indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (MA-IDIQ)) contract designed to provide federal agencies with innovative IT services-based solutions from award-winning small, disadvantaged prime contractors participating in the Small Business Administration’s 8(a) Businesses Development program.”
“Using 8(a) STARS III enables federal agencies access to 8(a) firms through an established contract vehicle instead of traditional open-market methods – saving time and taxpayer money,” said John Broughton, Knowesis Director of Business Development. “Knowesis supported several IT engagements providing innovative solutions to multiple federal agencies over the last several years. We look forward to supporting more agencies’ IT requirements through STARS III engagements.”
“The 10-year contract will build on the preceding STARS II by focusing more on emerging technologies and performance outside of the continental United States (OCONUS), GSA stated in a recent announcement. With a contract ceiling of $50 billion, STARS III is more than twice the size of STARS II, which has a $22 billion ceiling after the GSA recently raised it from $15 billion.”
