The General Services Administration (GSA) Office of Professional Services and Human Capital (PSHC) recently released a recorded pre-proposal conference and a training on the Submission Portal (OSP/Symphony) for the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services “+” (OASIS+) contract vehicle.
This a reminder that questions on OASIS+ must be submitted via the OSP by 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time on July 6, 2023. Solicitation questions not submitted via the OSP will not be answered.
The pre-proposal conference and the OSP video are essential resources for bidders as they provide comprehensive information and insights into the OASIS+ contract opportunity. They are particularly valuable because they offer direct information from GSA, the issuer of the contract, addressing crucial topics such as the proposal submission process, evaluation criteria, and key changes from the draft RFP.
Understanding these elements can help bidders align their proposal strategies effectively, mitigate risks, and increase their chances of winning a contract. It’s also an opportunity to clarify any doubts or questions regarding the contract requirements and submission process. Get the edge you need in this competitive process by harnessing the full range of resources available to you.
The OSP/Symphony training guides you through the system for Q&A and proposal submission. The recorded video can be found here.
