The U.S. General Services Administration’s Federal Acquisition Service released two draft request for proposals for OASIS, an enterprise program that aims to bring professional services with an information technology component under one umbrella.
The contracts, broken into an unrestricted portion that includes 50 percent small business subcontracting goals and a small business set aside contract, is believed to be valued at more than $4 billion when combined.
OASIS, or One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services, is an indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract that is expected to meet federal agency needs for management and consulting, engineering, logistics and finance.
“Ensuring full participation from our industry and agency partners in the development of this new acquisition is a priority for GSA’s OASIS team,” said FAS Commissioner Tom Sharpe in a released statement. “OASIS is a great example of how FAS makes agencies more effective at what they do by providing expertise, management and optimal acquisition solutions.”
According to GSA, OASIS will complement GSA’s Multiple Award Schedules program and provide agencies with more flexible full-service options.
“OASIS will also drive better outcomes for the federal government around reducing costs and expenses, improving operating efficiency and increasing focus on socioeconomic contracting goals,” the agency said.
Earlier this year, a team from GSA invited industry to provide feedback via a white paper format and also met with 60 responders in one-on-one sessions to ensure comprehensive contracting options for federal partners.
The feedback was taken into consideration as GSA’s team finalized the draft RFP for both contracts.
