Beware the OASIS On-Ramp. It isn’t as easy as it looks

GSA announced they are adding hundreds of contractors to the five OASIS Small Business and Unrestricted Pools

There’s an old adage: Saying it is one thing, but proving it is another. In the world of GSA OASIS On-Ramps, this adage is very fitting. GSA has announced that they are adding hundreds of contractors to the five OASIS Small Business and Unrestricted pools using open season on ramps. The latest schedule posted to the GSA OASIS Interact Community details the plan to move forward. OASIS Pool 1 Small Business proposals are now submitted, and in the first quarter of 2019 GSA plans to on-ramp OASIS SB sub-pools for 8(a) contractors for all pools.

Opportunity Alert: OASIS On-Ramps Begin with Pool 1 Small Business

With announced plans for future on-ramp contractors to OASIS SB Pools 3 and 4

On August 21, the General Services Administration (GSA) issued a pre-solicitation notice to on-ramp contractors to the existing One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services Small Business (OASIS SB) Pool 1. The OASIS on-ramps will follow a phased approach beginning with Pool 1, the most used pool with the smallest size standard ($15 million). Due to the size standard, GSA anticipates that most vendors will not be eligible to compete on task orders by April 2019; therefore, on-ramping is needed. The final solicitation will be released on or about September 9, 2018. OASIS SB is a Multiple Award (MA), Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contract classified as a Tier 3, Best-in-Class (BIC) contract providing solutions for complex professional services requirements. OASIS also helps agencies meet their government-wide spend under management (SUM) goals. SUM is the percentage of an organization’s spend that is actively managed according to category management principles.
