The General Service Administration (GSA) is expected to issue a third Amendment to the OASIS+ (One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services – Plus) professional services vehicle this week, and the agency is considering extending the submission deadline to September 22.
This extension is not final until it is formally issued in the Amendment, the agency announced in a Sept. 1 update. But GSA has telegraphed that Amendment 3 will include “an announcement about the brief extension of the proposal due date,” and, in response to industry feedback requesting a better idea of the timeline, GSA indicated a “notional extension to the closing date for all OASIS+ solicitations, which is September 22, 2023.”
With this extension, there is still time for interested bidders to pull together the documentation required to win a seat on this Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ). Don’t miss your chance to win a spot on this contract, with an estimated ceiling value of more than $133.7 billion.
OST Global Solutions can assist you in reviewing your submission for compliance, help you devise the best strategy to justify the highest score possible, and we can upload your documents to the OSP/Symphony portal. Call us.
OASIS+ Overview and Amendment 3
The OASIS+ professional services vehicle is a significant opportunity for many organizations. This follow-on to the GSA’s OASIS consolidates three other GSA vehicles with a combined $133.7 billion ceiling. OASIS+ has no set ceiling and no limit on the number of awards, and all qualifying bidders will receive an award.
The third Amendment to OASIS+ is expected to include the remaining responses to industry questions, pricing updates, changes to the solicitation documents, and updates to the OSP/Symphony Portal.
