In June we talked about the release of the OASIS and OASIS SB contract for use by the government.
Traditionally, Government Contractors have grown accustomed to a specific way of how to do business with the Federal Government. As the budget tightens, and defense spending winds down, there is certainly pressure put on all Government Contractors. This pressure doesn't necessarily dictate a different way to do business, however. The government, especially the GSA, is looking for ways to help mitigate cost and provide the best value to the taxpayer and this may include looking at a different way to do business. This may take some unsuspecting government contractors by surprise and could mean a loss of business as a result. The government contractor might blame the budget but a closer look might show that the alert government contractor might be able to salvage the business by merely adapting their business model.
Back in March we talked about the new contracting vehicle being proposed called One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS). The RFP for OASIS has just been released as of July 31, 2013. This represents the first government-wide hybrid contract for commercial & non-commercial services. The estimated market available for OASIS across all agencies is about $80 Billion. There are two RFP's: one exclusively for Small Business and the other for open competition. Companies can start working on proposals for this new unique contracting vehicle. The deadline for questions is August 20, 2013 and the due date for proposals is September 17, 2013.
