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.
