GSA Releases Draft Solicitation for Massive Professional Services Contract Vehicle

The General Services Administration moved one step closer to launching an overarching contract vehicle for professional services Thursday by releasing two draft requests for proposals.

The agency is inviting comments on the draft RFPs and through its GSA Interact system.

The contract vehicle, known as One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services, or OASIS, would include contracts for accounting, communication, security and transportation, among other services.

OASIS would be an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract that would last 10 years in its first incarnation, according to the draft RFPs. GSA's two draft solicitions were a general RFP and another focused on small businesses.

Once GSA chooses companies to participate in OASIS, those companies can compete to provide services to government agencies, including the Defense Department, on an ongoing basis.

GSA hasn’t yet determined the price ceiling for all services provided under OASIS, according to the draft RFP.

“OASIS will complement GSA’s Multiple Award Schedules program and provide agencies with more flexible full-service options,” GSA said in a statement. “OASIS will also drive better outcomes for the federal government around reducing costs and expenses, improving operating efficiency and increasing focus on socioeconomic contracting goals.”

The team developing OASIS sought input from the contracting community and the public earlier this year and met with over 60 people interested in the project in one-on-one sessions, according to the statement.

Correction: The original version of this story mischaracterized how services will be purchased under OASIS. Companies selected to participate will be able to compete for federal contracts with agencies including the Defense Department.
