GSA Oasis Contract - A Comprehensive Guide

As part of Blackfyre, a distinguished GSA Federal Schedule Consulting firm, we acknowledge the essence of the GSA OASIS contract. Renowned as a cardinal procurement tool, government agencies in dire need of integrated professional facilities significantly value it. What you might be wondering is, what exactly is this OASIS contract? The term stands for One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services; a holistic government-wide acquisition contract executed by the General Services Administration (GSA). Its design provides agencies with a wider range of comprehensive professional service solutions. Seeking to demystify it further? We present an in-depth analysis of the GSA OASIS Contract, majoring on its framework, prerequisites, and strategic considerations for businesses.

OASIS Contract Overview:

Firstly, let's look at the structure and performance period of the OASIS.

  • Multiple Award, Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (MA-IDIQ): Structured as an MA-IDIQ, OASIS presents unlimited flexibility and a broad array of services under a unified contracting vehicle.
  • Period of Performance: The contract comprises a base phase of 5 years, with an optional 5-year extension, thereby guaranteeing long-term availability and planning.
  • Contract Access Fee and Ceiling: With a contract access fee of .75% and no ceiling limit, OASIS is accessible for various task orders and procurement needs.

The Genesis of OASIS:

The GSA saw the necessity for an easy-to-access contract vehicle to secure non-IT professional services, thus birthing OASIS. It predominantly stands out from the Multiple Award Schedules Program due to its standardized labor classes and accommodating all contract types at the task-order level, including cost-reimbursement and cost-plus contracts.

OASIS Contract Structure:

OASIS comprises 28 NAICS Codes, 6 NAICS Code Exceptions, categorized into 7 Pools. Each Pool represents a MA-IDIQ task order contract, foreseeing approximately 40 contracts to be awarded per Pool. The services covered under these pools include;

  • Management Consulting
  • Program Management
  • Financial
  • Logistics
  • Engineering
  • Scientific

Proposal Submission and Qualifications:

Companies aspiring for the OASIS contract are free to submit one proposal but would be allowed to request for multiple Pools if qualified. To qualify for a Pool under the unrestricted solicitation requires three Pool Qualification projects under relevant NAICS Codes or Exceptions. Contrarily, the small business set-aside solicitation demands two projects.

    Post-Award OASIS Contract Prerequisites:
    Contractors awarded will have to conform to several criteria, which include;
  • Maintenance of an OASIS webpage compliant with Section 508
  • Regular attendance to OASIS meetings
  • Achievement of a minimum number of task order awards or total task order value for extension
  • Adherence to Cost Accounting Standards
  • Maintaining satisfactory accounting systems

Strategic Considerations for Responding to OASIS RFP:

Businesses anticipating a response to the OASIS RFP should comprehensively read the solicitation and attachments, bearing in mind resources, qualifications, requirements, and obligations post-award. Remember, it's not solely about eligibility but also the prowess to prepare a strong response and uphold ongoing contract duties.
