The General Services Administration is looking to replace its Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) multiple award vehicle. The current OASIS unrestricted vehicle, as well as OASIS Small Business, concludes in 2024. As par for the course, the preferences of federal buyers and industry feedback from Industry Days/RFIs will affect the development of the contract. Prospective firms seeking to provide input can do so via the GSA Interact website, although nothing has been posted yet.
The new replacement for OASIS will be amusingly be called BIC MAC, which stands for Best-in-Class Multi-Agency Contract. Like most agencies focusing on larger and larger vehicles, BIC MAC will strategically be set up to support and grow the GSA’s multiple acquisition contracts, enhance data reporting, and further develop federal purchaser’s means of acquisition. The GSA’s Office of Professional Services and Human Capital Categories will be managing the vehicle.
If you are not already familiar, OASIS is a ten-year multi-agency contract (MAC) with an approximate ceiling value of $60 Billion. It has several pools of IDIQ contracts and has subsets for companies that are small business (SB), 8(a) and unrestricted. It makes available both integrated professional services and products and allows commercial and noncommercial requirements for agencies including: Air Force, Army, Navy Air System Command, Department of Homeland Security, Office of the Secretary of Defense, Defense Information Systems Agency, the Defense Logistics Agency, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
