The General Services Administration has issued the final Requests for Proposals (RFP) for its One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services “+” (OASIS+) contract vehicle, a Best-In-Class (BIC) Indefinite-Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award (MA) professional services contract that is valued at more than $60 Billion and has no contract ceiling. OASIS+ has a 10-year period of performance.

GSA did not limit the number of awards. All bidders who qualify will receive an award.

  2. Revisions to the Meaningful Relationship Commitment Letter (MRCL) criteria.
  3. The removal of Attachment J.P-1 for representations and certifications.
  4. A detailed clarification of the OASIS+ Unrestricted teaming strategy.
