The General Services Administration’s (GSA) One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services or better known as the OASIS Program will provide numerous opportunities for registered businesses in government contracting.
The GSA has just released two draft RFPs for both the OASIS and the OASIS SB (Small Business) Programs, which are now available to bid on at FBO.gov. The OASIS program is designed to be a multiple-award program for professional services. The program is solutions-based so it is designed to choose the most qualified businesses for each specific contract and not just based on the lowest bid.
GSA is currently hosting an OASIS Industry Community, which allows contractors to interact with GSA members and discuss details of the soon to be released program. The GSA just announced that the first OASIS draft RFPs (request for proposal) are now available at FBO.gov to start bidding on. However, it is required that a business is properly registered in System for Award Management, which requirers a DUNS number, CAGE code, and TIN number in order to be registered to accept government contracts. US Federal Contractor Registration registers businesses in SAM.gov and other procurement databases in order to receive these required numbers/codes to start bidding on federal contracts. The GSA is still in the process of drafting other OASIS contracts for registered federal contractors.
