New Survey on
One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS)
Full and OPen (F&O) and Small Business (SB)
GSA is in the process of establishing the OASIS and OASIS SB multiple award IDIQ contracts that will be available for use by all government agencies, DoD, and the Intelligence Community. OASIS and OASIS SB are intended to provide Government agencies with contractual solutions to complex professional services-based requirements on a global basis. GSA has requested assistance from the American Council for Technology (ACT) - Industry Advisory Council (IAC) to gain additional feedback regarding these two contracts.
About OASIS: The scope of OASIS and OASIS SB includes any and all components required to formulate a total solution to a professional services-based requirement. These two contracts will be available to DoD, Federal agencies, and the Intelligence Community with broad scopes, unlimited pricing options, and task order flexibility regarding type, size, and complexity. For task orders placed under the OASIS contracts, professional services may be broadly defined as those services provided under one or more of the following five Core Disciplines: Program Management Services; Management Consulting Services; Logistics Services; Professional Engineering Services; and Financial Management Services; and possibly others. IT could play a supporting role to all of these areas. The use of OASIS and OASIS SB will provide the following benefits to agencies with complex requirements:
· Allow any and all FAR contract types to be utilized including CPFF and reimbursable options
· Provide ability to combine multiple core discipline areas and a total solution using one contract vehicle
· Provide agencies cost effective ability to achieve competition from vendors deemed viable across multiple core discipline areas
· Enhanced training; acquisition planning and assistance with preparation of solicitation documents; web based and phone access to experts; and other expanded GSA services to its customers.
· Provide One-stop shopping for complex or unique procurements historically requiring multiple schedules and pricing solutions.
· Provide agencies ability to utilize socio-economic firms on larger, complex requirements
