Industry Guidance and Resources
OASIS industry partners are integral to the helping agencies meet their complex professional services requirements. Below are resources to support OASIS vendors with contract maintenance, contract reporting, research tools and staying connected.
Proper contract maintenance is vital to ensuring OASIS vendors can respond to buying opportunities.
We have designated two email addresses that must be used when contacting OASIS:
Modification- When requesting modifications (e.g., novations, address changes), submitting contract compliance deliverable documentation, or submitting changes or any other updates to your contract information (eg., email, phone, contact information), please use firstname.lastname@example.org.
General Questions- The email address that is set up to field all general OASIS questions that are not related to contract compliance or contract changes, is:
The OASIS Systems Tools and Registration [PDF - 99 KB] document provides guides to the various registrations and tools required to manage your contract and help your company maintain compliance with the OASIS program requirements.
This welcome letter [PDF - 211 KB] provides additional guidance to newly awarded contractors.
This novation checklist [DOCX - 19 KB]provides guidance on requesting a novation under your OASIS contract.
The OASIS contract requires vendors to properly report new task orders awarded against their contract in CPRM.
Failure to ensure the CAF is appropriately included in all task order solicitation responses and subsequent task order awards, on a separate line item, may lead to contract non-compliance. It is critical to ensure CAF is paid to you by ordering contracting offices, so that you may in turn remit payment to GSA. Your OASIS contract requires you to report new task orders awarded against your contract within 30 days in CPRM, and to report invoices each quarter after that. Remittance of CAF billed to, and collected from, your customers in a timely manner through CPRM reporting is required by the contract in Section G.3.1., Contract Access Fee. You may contact email@example.com with any questions you have about CPRM or reporting.

Below is a list of agencies that have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to use the OASIS contracts and the related reduced Contract Assessment Fee (CAF) rate percentages.
|Receiving Agency||Negotiated CAF Rate Percentage|
|DOD Defense Procurement and Acquisition Policy (DPAP) [PDF - 1 MB]||0.10%|
|US Air Force [PDF - 83 KB]||0.10%|
|US Navy [PDF - 96 KB]||0.10%|
|Department of Homeland Security [PDF - 70 KB]||0.25%|
|Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services [PDF - 227 KB]||0.50%|
Getting on OASIS
OASIS is not a GSA Schedule contract, meaning there is not a continuously open application process; therefore, applications will not be accepted.
Getting on OASIS is a competitive process called on-ramping. On-ramps can be conducted as necessary at GSA's discretion. GSA does not plan conduct additional on-ramps.
The immediate opportunity is to become a subcontractor with an existing OASIS Unrestricted or OASIS SB prime contractor. Determine what core competencies and value your company brings to potential solutions, network with the OASIS primes, and figure out the best ways to work together. Reminder: It is strictly prohibited to send emails by way of the following Pool Links if you are not an authorized government official. Non-authorized personnel may contact the Prime Contract holders individually through links found the Buyers Guidance and Resources page
OASIS Shared Interest Groups
The OASIS Shared Interest Group (OSIG) supports an open channel of communication between awarded contractors and the OASIS program.
The OASIS industry partners have established an OASIS Shared Interest Group (OSIG) to support an open channel of communication between awarded contractors and the OASIS program and to collaborate on topics including business development, small business concerns, and special projects.
OASIS Contractor Capability Statements pulled together by the OSIG.
These tools are designed to help buyers make better program and business decisions.
The OASIS Program created a tool that takes its data to the next level. OASIS stakeholders can now view and segment OASIS information to make better program and business decisions.
With the OASIS Dashboard, you have the ability to:
- Explore OASIS and OASIS SB data by federal agency and industry partner; and
- Build customized reports and download them to your computer.
Notice to Users: GSA strives to comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Some of the dashboard content presented through .swf files may not be completely accessible to users of assisted technology. If you experience technical issues, please contact BIEDW Support.
For content questions, please email OASIS Customer Support.

Discovery is a market research tool for GSA contracts including OASIS and OASIS Small Business (SB). Discovery streamlines the process for developing scenarios for set-asides on various contract vehicles to reduce, replace or support Requests for Information (RFI), saving time and cost for the federal government and contractors.
Discovery allows federal users to:
- Generate a listing of awarded contractors based on a primary North American Industry Classification;
- System (NAICS) code and filter for fair opportunity from a list of socioeconomic classifications;
- Find contractor administrative information such as points of contact, as well as, lists of current and completed contract actions from the Federal Procurement Data System (FPDS); and
- Download contractor details as a Comma Separated Values (CSV) file for offline use and analysis.
How Discovery Works
Discovery pulls information from FPDS to provide context-rich contract history on awarded contractors based on primary NAICS codes. Each contract is separated into Unrestricted and SB to make it easy to reserve task orders for small business categories.
With Discovery, users can research contracts by first selecting the contract vehicle of interest and then selecting a NAICS code/description matching the requirement. This will display all of the awarded contractors in that contract pool. A pool is a separate contract with one or more NAICS assigned and a single small business size standard. Each pool has unique qualifications tied to a specific scope identified by an assigned NAICS code.
On the vendor results page, users select a primary NAICS Code to view the vendor contract history, as well as up to date System for Award Management (SAM) registration data. Discovery also loads data from the FPDS to automatically provide you with a context-rich contract history for each contractor, including the amount of the contract, the primary NAICS code and the pricing type.
The Contract-Awarded Labor Category (CALC) tool helps federal contracting officers and others find awarded prices to use in negotiations for labor contracts. It offers ceiling prices, fully burdened costs, services data, and worldwide rates.
The OASIS Price Estimating Tool is designed to assist you in preparing the labor portion of your Independent Government Cost Estimate (IGCE).
The OASIS Price Estimating Tool User Guide [PDF - 1 MB], in combination with the OASIS Labor Categories Crosswalk [XLSX - 81 KB] companion document, provides detailed step-by-step instructions. For best results, the user must be familiar with the OASIS and OASIS Small Business contracts through self-study or by attending the Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA) training. It is especially important to have an understanding of the Standardized Labor Categories and how they are priced.
The Government-Wide Category Management (CM) Reporting and Analytics site contains a series of dashboards and tools to support stakeholders in the full CM lifecycle.

The original solicitation is self-scored and then verified by the OASIS PMO. The same evaluation criteria and scoring table of the original solicitation will be used for any on-ramping procurement. The lowest scoring contractor was based on the lowest evaluated numerical score, within a given Pool in accordance with the scoring table in Section M of the solicitation (see links above), at the time of the original awards.
Below are the lowest evaluated numerical scores per Pool per vehicle.
|OASIS Small Business||OASIS (Unrestricted)|
|Pool 1: 5925||Pool 1: 7825|
|Pool 2: 2250||Pool 2: 5100|
|Pool 3: 5875||Pool 3: 7575|
|Pool 4: 6575||Pool 4: 7550|
|Pool 5A: 6625||Pool 5A: 7950|
|Pool 5B: 6975||Pool 5B: 8325|
|Pool 6: 5450||Pool 6: 5125|
OASIS contractors are encouraged to join the OASIS Interact community and reach out to the Vendor Support with questions about the FAS Sales Reporting portal, TDR training, user manuals and general vendor inquiries.
