To issue a task order on OASIS or HCaTS, a warranted contracting officer (appointed according to FAR 1.603) or an official authorized to obligate funds for the agency must get a Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA) for OASIS or HCaTS. The DPA clearly outlines the roles and responsibilities between the GSA OASIS or HCaTS contracting officer and the ordering contracting officer. Fill out the form below to request a DPA. DPA requestors must provide a .gov or .mil email address. If you do not have a .gov or .mil work email address, please contact the OASIS Contracting Officer at OASISDPA@gsa.gov or HCaTS Contracting Officer at HCaTSTraining@gsa.gov for assistance in requesting a DPA.
