Request an OASIS Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA)

DPA training is mandatory for Ordering Contracting Officers (OCO). DPA training is provided to 1102 (contracting) personnel only. Only warranted Contracting Officers, holding a warrant with dollar limitations above the simplified acquisition threshold, are eligible to receive a DPA.

Other training is available for Program Managers, Contracting Officers Representatives (CORs), and other program personnel. However, they will not be eligible for a DPA.

To get started, use the OASIS Training Request Form (a single DPA will be issued for both OASIS and OASIS SB).

After requesting a DPA

  • GSA will review your training request, and if approved, will schedule training
  • Once training is complete and you respond to our follow up email requesting you self-certify completion of training and provide data regarding warrant level and contracting office locations, GSA will issue your DPA,
  • You should receive the training certificate and DPA MOU within two to five business days after we receive your valid response, and
  • After receiving your DPA MOU, you will be able to issue task orders. The DPA will clearly define the roles and responsibilities between the GSA CO and the OCO.
To view the listing of departments and agencies who’s warranted Contracting Officers have received the OASIS Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA) and who have trained Contract Specialists, see this OASIS DPA Location by Dept Agency [XLSX - 30 KB] with department name, agencies within that department, and location.
