The General Services Administration (GSA) has extended the deadline for submissions to its OASIS+ (One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services – Plus) professional services vehicle until October 20, 2023, at 4:00 PM EDT. The agency expects to post a fifth amendment to the solicitation before September 22, the original submission deadline.

The OASIS+ professional services vehicle is an Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) that 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.
This will be GSA’s fifth amendment to the OASIS+ Request for Proposals (RFP) to clarify details for bidders. GSA has also posted four rounds of answers to bidder questions, for a total of 883 questions answered, and three separate webinars reviewing how to properly tag, label, and upload your documents into the OASIS+ Submission Portal/Symphony Portal.
At OST, we have closely tracked every detail of the OASIS+ submission for months, and we will continue to analyze additional updates from the agency to ensure our clients proposals adhere to every guideline and maximize their claimed points.
OASIS+ Submission Portal (OSP) Updates
This extension was implemented in part to allow updates to the OSP. Specifically, a data field will be added to support submissions of a Collection of Task Orders awarded under Single Award Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity contracts (IDIQs), Blanket Purchase Agreements (BPAs), or Basic Ordering Agreements (BOAs).
It’s worth noting that, as per the GAO Protest Docket, a protest (B-421775.2) was filed by ESC, Inc. on September 19, 2023. While the specifics surrounding this protest are not fully disclosed currently, we’re closely monitoring this situation and will keep you informed of any developments that could impact the final submission process.
