GWACs Defined

  • Government-wide Acquisition Contracts are Task or Delivery Order Contracts for Information Technology (IT)

  • Established by One Agency for Government-wide Use

  • Operated by an Executive Agency Designated by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB)

  • Designed to Streamline Acquisition of IT Products, Services, and Solutions
