How to Get on OASIS

How do I get on OASIS

  • OASIS is not a GSA Schedule contract, meaning there is not a continuously open application process
  • Getting on OASIS is a competitive process called on-ramping. On-ramps can be conducted as necessary at GSA's discretion
  • OASIS and OASIS SB on-ramps will likely be targeted to a single pool and/or subpool at a time

More about On-Ramping

  • The primary reasons to on-ramp would revolve around inadequate competition levels at the task order level, mergers and acquisitions that shrink the number of vendors, customer driven request for a more focused sub-pool, and/or OASIS small businesses outgrowing their small business size standard after the first option period.
  • All on-ramping notices will be widely advertised including announcements on this page and FBO.gov.
  • Learn more about types of on-ramps

For Lateral Pool Ramping OASIS SB section H.15.1, you must have a proposal score equal to or higher than the awarded lowest scoring Contractor within the Pool being applied for.

For Vertical Contract On-Ramping OASIS U/OASIS SB Section H.15.2, you must have a proposal score equal to or higher than the awarded lowest scoring Contractor within the Pool being applied for.

For Open Season On-ramping OASIS U/OASIS SB Section H.15.3, a number of contracts to be awarded will be announced and the highest technically rated Offerors will receive those awards regardless of how their score compared to the original awardees.

For Focused On-Ramping (SubPool Creation) OASIS U/OASIS SB section H.15.4 a number of contracts to be awarded will be announced and the highest technically rated Offerors will receive those awards regardless of how their score compared to the original awardees.

The 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. (N/A means the Pool was not filled and therefore the lowest scoring is yet to be established.)

OASIS Small Business OASIS (Unrestricted)
Pool 1: 5925 Pool 1: 7825
Pool 2: 2250 Pool 2: N/A
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: N/A

Other Ways To Participate in OASIS

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 OASIS Contractors page.

  • The best way to do this is to examine and understand the original OASIS and OASIS SB solicitations. All on-ramp solicitations will be almost identical to the original solicitations.
  • Familiarize yourself with the structure of OASIS, the Pools, the point system, relevant experience projects, pool qualification projects, etc.
  • The better you understand the solicitations, the more you can do now to strengthen your potential score when the right on-ramp opportunity becomes available.
