The General Services Administration’s (GSA) One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services “+” (OASIS+) will be one of the largest and most valuable contract vehicles for the next 10 years. This Best-in-Class (BIC) Indefinite-Delivery Indefinite-Quantity (IDIQ) is a professional services contract that is valued at more than $60 Billion and has no contract ceiling.

A final Request for Proposals (RFP) is expected later this year. A draft RFP is available for potential offerors to review to see how best to increase their score and prepare a complaint, compelling proposal.

Teaming with partners to provide GSA with the most robust, highest-scoring bid is a smart move. To ensure you can work with a qualified partner you will want to make sure you understand the GSA’s rules on teaming, which will avoid your proposal being rejected for noncompliance.

Who Can Bid on OASIS+?

OASIS+ has competition pools for 8(a), Small Businesses, Full and Open/Unrestricted, HUBZone, Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB), and Woman-Owned Small Businesses. In the Unrestricted pool, Other Than Small Business (OTSB), bidders MUST provide a subcontracting plan to GSA, per the draft RFP. This plan must provide set aside opportunities for Small, HUBZone, Small Disadvantaged, Women-Owned, Veteran-Owned, and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Businesses.

What Services Is GSA Looking For?

In the two competition categories issued so far in the draft RFP (Unrestricted and Small Business), there are eight Domains that offerors can apply for:

  1. Technical & Engineering
  2. Management & Advisory
  3. Facilities
  4. Intelligence
  5. Logistics
  6. Research and Development
  7. Environmental
  8. Enterprise Solutions (Only available to vendors on OASIS+ Unrestricted)

Can I Submit Multiple Bids with Different Teams?

Offerors can be part of multiple OASIS+ bids, but there are some restrictions. No project may be used more than once in the same competition pool (WOSB, 8A, etc). GSA will toss out any proposals that have projects used more than once in each category.

Can I Use a Subcontractors’ Experience for Qualifying Projects?

Yes, and this is good news for those wanting to build a team that covers as many task areas as possible. Offerors can use qualifying projects from their teammates and do not have to solely rely on past performance from the Prime offeror.
