The General Services Administration’s (GSA’s) Office of Professional Services and Human Capital (PSHC) has finalized its small business acquisition strategy for its new Best-in-Class Multiple Award Contract (BIC MAC) to replace GSA’s One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) Contract. OASIS has been one of GSA’s most successful vehicles, accounting for $35 billion in obligations.

GSA intends to solicit and award separate Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts designated under the following categories:

  • 8(a) Small Business
  • HUBZone Small Business
  • Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business
  • Total Small Business
  • Woman-Owned Small Business
  • Unrestricted

Of note, PSHC said that this small business strategy “does not impact the overall proposed contract structure, including use of the Domains.” GSA plans to organize the Services MAC contract program by Domains — functional groupings of services spanning multiple NAICS codes. The first Domains GSA plans to award include:

  • Management and Advisory
  • Technical and Engineering
  • Research and Development
  • Intelligence Services
  • Enterprise Solutions
  • Environmental Services
  • Facilities
  • Logistics

Additional Domains will be prioritized and introduced by GSA “in close coordination with stakeholders and supported by market research,” according to an agency update in December 2021.

Bidders can view a draft Statement of Work/Section C at the Services Multi-Agency Contract (MAC) Community of Interest at GSA Interact. Additional draft sections of the Request for Proposals (RFP) will be issued in the coming months as GSA seeks feedback from industry on how to shape the RFP.

To prepare for BIC MAC to replace OASIS, companies should stay informed of any updates by receiving SAM.gov notices of any draft RFPs. This new IDIQ will likely require companies to have a Cyber Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) at the task order level, so it would be prudent for firms to obtain that certification now in case it is required for a BIC MAC award.
