The General Services Administration (GSA) has released a significant update for the POLARIS Government Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC). The agency issued Amendment 4 (RFP 47QTCB22R0007) for the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) competition pool. This amendment, a direct consequence of the recent Court of Federal Claims decision, presents a crucial adjustment mandate for those who submitted proposals by November 18, 2022. Failure to respond effectively to these changes could result in GSA rejecting your proposal.

The deadline for updated submissions is January 12, 2024, so it’s essential to act quickly. Review and adjust your proposals accordingly on the Polaris Submission Portal (
