North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Pools
Services under OASIS span 28 NAICS codes and six (6) exceptions or 34 codes – exceptions in all. These 34 codes/exceptions are allocated among seven (7) NAICS code pools. All codes/exceptions in a pool share a common small business (SB) size standard. Agencies can solicit task order proposals from contractors holding awards in the pool with the NAICS code that matches the agency’s requirement.
Standardized Labor Categories
The labor categories are aligned with occupations, as outlined in the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system.
OASIS offers more meaningful proposed rate comparisons at the task order level – apples to apples, and 104 OASIS LCATs (individual and groups and priced at the master contract level) cover 127 OMB SOC occupations and over 1,000 typical industry job titles.
The remainder of the 840 SOC occupations can be added and priced at the task order level as ancillary labor.
The automated estimating tool:
- Can be used in building realistic estimates for the labor portion of requirements;
- Is a quick and easy-to-use tool for creating the task order Independent Government Cost Estimate (IGCE);
- Incorporates statistics for each SOC system occupation based on Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) surveys as direct rates and OASIS Awardee indirect rates, and prices; and
- Can index pricing for up to 640 precise geographic locations.
Manage Small Business (SB) Program and Goals
OASIS facilitates agency management of its SB program and goals through awards in every SB category, including socioeconomics and the provision of business intelligence via dashboards on SB performance.
Through the use of OASIS, customer agencies receive small business credit, and it supports competition, even in socioeconomic categories.
