After much anticipation for the past several months, the GSA’s One Acquisition for Integrated Services (OASIS) releases the first RFPs (Request for Proposal) on FedBizOpps (FBO.gov). The beautiful thing about the OASIS program is that it has two different programs. The first is designed for large/corporate businesses that have a vast amount of experience bidding on contracts and know a thing or two about the federal marketplace. The second part of the OASIS program is the the OASIS SB (small business), which is designed for properly registered small business contractors. These programs were created as a 10 year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contract that is already projecting to be a multi-billion dollar contract vehicle. If contractors are interested in learning more about the program they can reference GovernmentContractingTips.com.
Currently, the OASIS Program does not have a posted ceiling sum to their contract. Each contract is based on quality of work and not the lowest bidder to make sure government projects have the best possible outcome. The first OASIS RFPs cane be viewed at FBO.gov, and have posted a September 17th deadline for interested contractors. Ghiloni, Director of the OASIS Program stated, “If there is as much demand as we’re hearing, this [OASIS] could take off, and I don’t want to have to redo it in four years because we didn’t anticipate success.”
