GSA Issues Proposal Request for $4B Consulting, Engineering and Logistics Services

GSA_logoThe U.S. General Services Administration has released draft request for proposals for a $4 billion enterprise program combined to fulfill the federal agency’s needs for consulting, engineering, finance and logistics services, according to FedScoop.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity one acquisition solution for integrated services (OASIS) covers an open portion with 50 percent small business subcontracting goals, and a small business set-aside contract, David Stegon writes.

OASIS will help the federal government reduce costs, boost efficiency and increase focus toward socioeconomic contracts, said the Federal Acquisition Service, which issued the draft RFPs.

The GSA said the program rounds out its multiple award schedules to give agencies flexibility in choosing which services to purchase.

“OASIS is a great example of how FAS makes agencies more effective at what they do by providing expertise, management and optimal acquisition solutions,” said FAS Commissioner Tom Sharpe.

The draft RFPs stemmed from the industry’s feedback after the GSA had spoken with 60 responders earlier this year in sessions intended to provide federal partners with extensive contracting options.

“Ensuring full participation from our industry and agency partners in the development of this new acquisition is a priority for GSA’s OASIS team,” said Sharpe.
