OASIS and OASIS Small Business (SB) are multiple award, Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts that provide flexible and innovative solutions for complex professional services. Details of OASIS Contract include:

  • Span many areas of expertise and mission space;
  • Span multiple professional service disciplines;
  • Allow flexibility for all contract types, including hybrids and cost-reimbursement, at the task order level; and
  • Allow ancillary support components, commonly referred to as Other Direct Costs (ODC), at the task order level.

The core disciplines of the contract include:

  • Program management services;
  • Management consulting services;
  • Logistics services;
  • Engineering services;
  • Scientific services; and
  • Financial services.

GSA’s OASIS program is conducting a series of open season on-ramps to increase the industrial base on the OASIS SB and OASIS U Pools 1, 3 and 4 and also establish 8(a) sub-pools under each OASIS SB Pool with task order history.

 

These OASIS on-ramps are designed to increase industry access to GSA Professional Services Best-in-Class contracts and help agencies achieve OMB mandated government-wide Spend Under Management goals by shifting unmanaged spend to existing Best-in-Class contracts. The on-ramps will also increase the industrial base to improve competition at the task order level.

The open season on-ramps will be conducted using a phased approach. The first of these on-ramps is already underway, with the OASIS SB Pool 1 final solicitation issued on September 10, 2018. Moving forward, GSA has plans to on-ramp OASIS SB sub-pools for 8(a) contractors for Pools that have had previous task orders issued under OASIS SB. OASIS Unrestricted Pools 1, 3 and 4 will follow the 8(a) sub-pools.  The OASIS on-ramp series will conclude with OASIS SB, Pools 3 and 4 later this year.

We will also conduct vertical and lateral on-ramps for existing OASIS SB contractors who will outgrow their Pool’s size standard upon re-representation. These on-ramps will allow growing companies to continue performing under OASIS in Pools where they are eligible.

Listed below is our current proposed schedule and anticipated milestones for the on-ramps. Please review it as there have been some changes since our last blog. And please be aware that this schedule is subject to change if unforeseen circumstances arise.
