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.Read More

In June we talked about the release of the OASIS and OASIS SB contract for use by the government.
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.
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.
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:
