** Updated September 26, 2017
Update: After releasing a pre-award list of firms who made the cut earlier this summer, GSA made it official yesterday as they posted the final set of awardees for this important SDVOSB specific GWAC.
Based on the list below, we expect this new contract will have great success as they bring back some top performers from the original VETS contract while adding numerous fast rising SDVOSBs who have proven they know how to drive business and deliver. With the rule of two playing a larger role at VA, a vehicle full of viable SDVOSBs will be an attractive option for VA contracting officials, as well as any agency trying to meet their small business goals. GSA stated there were 187 proposals received in total. The official award announcement can be found here.
Congratulations to the many noted winners. Now comes the hard work – winning the tasks.

G2X TAKE: While not Health IT specific, it is worth mentioning that, just a short 16 months after the solicitation for this multiple award IDIQ contract set aside for SDVOSB firms was released, GSA appears to be close to making a final award on this 10-year contract to provide Federal agencies with customized IT services and services-based solutions.
Once a go-to contract for Veterans Affairs, the original GSA VETS contract had a great deal of success and upward momentum for the first few years after the award in 2007, but was hammered after the VA’s T4 contract was awarded, with sales on VETS dropping by more than 50% from 2011-2014.
Details on the announcement below. Note: The awards are not official at this time, allowing time for any challenges to size or SDVOSB status.
“After review and evaluation in accordance with the criteria established in the Solicitation, the following organizations are deemed to be the highest technically rated offerors with a fair and reasonable price. This list represents a complete roster of the apparently successful offerors.”
No response is required “unless a basis exists to challenge the size status or service-disabled veteran-owned small business status of an apparently successful offeror listed below.” Source: VETS II GWAC RFP
