Earlier last month, GSA announced that they are re-opening a solicitation and looking to add more contractors/awardees. The “open season on-ramp” is specific to Pool 2 only. The original intent was to award 40 contractors in Pool 2; however, there are currently only 9 contract awardees in Pool 2. This action by GSA intends to add 31 more multiple award contractors to the existing OASIS SB Pool 2.

OASIS SB Poised to Save the Government money

Posted by Mike Anderson on Mon, Jun 30, 2014 @ 02:19 PM

The GSA contract vehicle called One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) Small Business (SB) is now available for use by government agencies.  this contract is expected to save the government significant money while authorizing about $80 Billion per year in spending.  The Air Force already committed to use this vehicle rather than establish their own IDIQ vehicle which will result in approximately $1.4 Billion in spending in this area alone.  The OASIS SB contract is 100% set-aside for small business and there is also an OASIS contract that is open enrollment but designed to subcontract at least 50% to small business.  The pre-solicitation came out a little over a year ago and the RFP solicited government contractors late last summer and fall.  Recently, June 20, 1014, the list of successful bidders was released by the the US General Services Administration (GSA).  We have discussed this contract a couple of times in the past on how the vehicle is designed to find the top suppliers and foster relationships with those companies.  The "cream of the crop" of suppliers for services to the government.  As a result, the government (translate; the taxpayer) is expected to save a significant amount of money.  The contractors selected for this contract all had to pass stringent requirements related to quality, on-time delivery, accounting systems and purchasing systems to name a few criteria.

New Government Contract Opportunity: OASIS

Posted by Mike Anderson on Fri, Mar 29, 2013 @ 02:01 PM

The government released this week a draft for a Proposal (RFP) this week called One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS).  OASIS is a Multiple Award, Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) type contract for Government-wide  professional service procurement.  The opportunity is coming out of the GSA branch of the government and has two parts.  The first part will be an unrestricted contract but includes goals for small business subcontracting of 50%.  The second part is a set aside contract for small business.  As you can see, there is a tremendous opportunity within this vehicle for small business participation.  The goal of this contract is to supply professional services to both commercial and non-commercial needs within the federal agencies.  The areas of expertise include the following categories:
