Today, GSA, our customers, and our industry partners have much to celebrate — two years ago, GSA awarded One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) and OASIS Small Business to provide federal agencies a flexible and innovative solution for their complex professional services requirements. So, join us in saying Happy Birthday OASIS!
Over 1,300 Delegation of Procurement Authorities (DPA) awarded to date
In those two years, the OASIS Program Office has given 168 delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA) training sessions to more than 4,800 federal employees. It has delegated Ordering Contracting Officer (OCO) authority to over 1,400 qualified Contracting Officers in over 300 Contracting Offices across 34 Federal agencies, worldwide. DPA trainings give Contracting Officers access to the vehicles and teach best practices for task order issuance. A full listing of DPA locations can be found here. For more information, including how to request DPA training, visit our website.
Approximately $5.1 billion dollars in complex professional services awarded
Over the last two years, an estimated $5.1 billion dollars in complex professional services have been awarded against the OASIS contracts. As of the end of April 2016, 213 task orders with an estimated value of $2.98 billion over their term have been awarded against the OASIS SB contracts, with 71 task orders with an estimated value of $2.17 billion awarded against the OASIS Unrestricted contracts. We expects these numbers to increase exponentially as agencies experience the success of acquiring quality professional services through the flexible, easy-to-use OASIS acquisition platform.
Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) signed with the Air Force, Army, DHS and NAVAIR
In the past two years, GSA has signed MOUs with the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Army, the Department of Homeland Security, and NAVAIR. OASIS and OASIS SB streamline the professional services acquisition process, while also eliminating costly, duplicative contracts. OASIS and OASIS SB provide the tools they need to more effectively meet their missions, while also saving time and money. Each MOU can be viewed here.
Labor Estimating Tool & Discovery Market Research Tool launched
We launched two powerful tools to support agencies with acquisition planning and market research. The labor estimating tool provides access to specific performance location wage data for more than 800 occupations in the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Standard Occupational Classification system at 640 geographic locations across the United States and its territories. Customers can generate a task order labor cost estimate by manipulating the data with the lowest, average, and highest offered markup rates. Plans are underway to update the estimating tool so users can adjust direct wage data to other pricing applications, including the Fixed-Price and Cost Reimbursement task orders.
The Discovery Market Research Tool lets customers generate an appropriate list of active sources for fair opportunity competition in the appropriate OASIS Pool based on the OASIS vehicle and projected primary NAICS code for the requirement. It also lets users identify the viability of task order socio-economic set-asides and capture detailed integrated information for each potential competitor.
Thank you to all our federal agency customers and industry partners for your invaluable contributions to the OASIS program. We look forward to many more successes in the coming years. For more information on OASIS and OASIS SB, visit GSA’s OASIS website.
