GSA Releases OASIS SB Pool 1, 3, 4 and OASIS 8(a) On-Ramp Solicitations

GSA’s Office of Professional Services and Human Capital Categories is pleased to announce that:


  • The OASIS Small Business (SB) Pool 1, 3 and 4 solicitation has been released on beta.SAM.gov
  • The OASIS SB 8(a) Subpools solicitation has also been released on beta.SAM.gov


The due date for receipt of proposals and submission process is outlined in the solicitation.


About the OASIS SB Pool 1, 3, 4 On-Ramp


As a result of a recent GAO protest and other program and business considerations, GSA has consolidated the OASIS SB on-ramp opportunity for Pools 1, 3, & 4 to create an easier and more efficient on-ramp opportunity for industry and fill the pools based on need as quickly as possible.  


About the OASIS 8(a) On-Ramp


GSA and the Small Business Administration (SBA) collaborated on a strategy that will allow for 8(a) sole source and competitive set-aside availability. OASIS SB will establish 8(a) sub-pools under each pool. These sub-pool contractors will go through the SBA offer and acceptance process to achieve this additional flexibility on OASIS SB. GSA and the SBA are excited to expand access of a Tier 3 BIC contract to the 8(a) community while creating more options for federal agencies to meet their socio-economic goals.


GSA plans to add up to 82 8(a) companies to the contract program in total. It is expected that companies independently awarded SB Pools 1, 3, and 4 -- who are also 8(a) program certified and whose CTAs include only 8(a) participants -- could automatically qualify for these sub-pools.


Virtual Industry Day


GSA will host a virtual Industry Day on May 7, 2019 to review the solicitations, provide a demonstration of the Symphony system that will be used to submit proposals, and address common questions. The webinar is open to all industry partners interested in the OASIS Small  Business Pool 1, 3, and 4 and OASIS 8(a) on-ramps.


Date: May 7, 2019

Time: 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. ET

The OASIS SB and OASIS family of contracts have proven to be a significant step forward in supporting federal agencies, and improving acquisition efficiency and effectiveness in the Federal government. OASIS has helped agencies streamline their complex professional services acquisition needs, ultimately helping agencies buy smarter and more efficiently, thus saving taxpayer dollars. As a Tier 3, Best-in-Class (BIC) contract providing solutions for complex professional services requirements, OASIS also helps agencies meet their government-wide Spend Under Management goals.

Further information on all the OASIS on-ramps will continued to be shared in this OASIS Interact community. In addition, a comprehensive set of Frequently Asked Questions is available on GSA.gov Questions? Please follow the process for submitting questions outlined in the solicitation.
