Contracts

OASIS Small Business (SB) is a family of seven separate government-wide multiple award, indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity (MA IDIQ) fast order contracts administered under the authority of the U.S. General Services Administration (GSA), by local contracting officer, known as ordering contracting officers (OCO).  OASIS SB contracts are 100 percent SB set-asides (SBSA), designed to provide best value services for complex professional service requirements that:

  • Span multiple professional service disciplines;
  • Contain significant IT components, but are not IT requirements in and of themselves;
  • Contain Ancillary Support components commonly referred to as other direct costs (ODC);
  • Require flexibility for all contract types at the fast order level, including cost reimbursement; and
  • One or a combination of the above.

Agencies can buy professional services, such as management and consulting, engineering, logistics, and financial services.  Cutting across each of the core disciplines are eight lifecycle phases where agencies may need professional services support, such as requirements analysis, concept development, planning, acquisition, research and development, test and evaluation, implementation, and operations and maintenance.  Notable features and benefits of OASIS include:

  • Government-wide use;
  • Access to best-in-class solution providers;
  • On-ramp/off-ramp procedures to ensure a flexible, vibrant vendor pool; and
  • Integrated support for key government initiatives
