The General Services Administration (GSA) is seeking industry feedback on a draft Request for Proposals (RFP) for its government-wide, indefinite delivery indefinite quantity (IDIQ) professional services contract, One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services “+” (OASIS+). The draft RFP contains all sections, as well as qualification matrices for two of the six socioeconomic categories: Unrestricted and Total Small Business.
OASIS+ is a Multi-Agency Contract (MAC) designed to offer flexible and innovative solutions for complex professional and engineering services spanning various service disciplines and contract types. OASIS + combines three professional services multi-agency vehicles: OASIS; OASIS Small Business; Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS); and Building, Maintenance, and Operations (BMO).
In a cover letter released with the draft RFP this week, GSA specifically asks industry partners to provide feedback on the following considerations: a different acquisition strategy with respect to NAICS codes; the Cyber-Supply Chain Risk Management Plan; the 10-year period of performance; Contractor Performance Assessment Reporting System performance evaluations; and sustainability as measurable criteria.
The agency also plans to release a second draft RFP in the second quarter of the fiscal year 2023. The qualification matrices for all proposed socioeconomic vehicles included in the final RFP will mirror the Total Small Business qualification matrices, according to GSA.
Along with releasing the draft RFP, GSA opened its Symphony Procurement Suite platform for early registration. GSA’s Office of Professional Services and Human Capital (PSHC) will be using the Symphony Procurement Suite for OASIS+ proposal submission and evaluations. The agency highly encourages potential bidders to register and use the system to ask questions and submit feedback on the draft RFP.
The deadline to submit comments to GSA is Dec. 31. For more details on OASIS+, see our previous newsletter on the contract.
