Office Hours: SOWs, PWS, SOOs: Finding the Best Fit

1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET (10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. PT)

Do you know the difference between a Statement of Work (SOW), a Performance Work Statement (PWS) and a Statement of Objectives (SOO)? How do you decide which to use, especially as it relates to professional services acquisitions? Join our experts to learn about the pros and cons of each, along with some examples and lessons learned from using each option. Earn 1 CLP!

A SOW is typically used when the task is well-known and can be described in specific terms. Statement of Objective (SOO) and Performance Work Statement (PWS) emphasize performance-based concepts such as desired service outcomes and performance standards. Whereas PWS/SOO's establish high-level outcomes and objectives for performance and PWS' emphasize outcomes, desired results and objectives at a more detailed and measurable level, SOW's provide explicit statements of work direction for the contractor to follow. However, SOW's can also be found to contain references to desired performance outcomes, performance standards, and metrics, which is a preferred approach.

Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) holders are invited to join this session to learn more about the Sales Reporting Portal (SRP). The Federal Acquisition Service (FAS) SRP supports the collection of data required by FAS procurement programs including MAS, non-MAS programs such as the Government-Wide Acquisition Contracts (GWACS) and others. The FAS SRP provides a safe, secure, and user-friendly portal for you, our industry partners, to report both transactional and aggregate level data required by your FAS contracts as well as multiple payment options for remitting the fee required pursuant to your contract. During this session you will learn about the importance of reporting in SRP and get an overview of using the system.

OASIS DPA Training

September 15, 2021

1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET (10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. PT)

Registration Link

Remember, you can sign up for OASIS DPA training at any time through DAU’s Virtual Campus by searching FAC 152.

Delegation of Procurement (DPA) training gives Contracting Officers access to the OASIS Unrestricted and OASIS Small Business contract vehicles and teaches best practices for task order issuance. A single DPA will be issued for both OASIS and OASIS SB. Warranted contracting officers (a contracting officer appointed pursuant to FAR 1.603) can request a DPA, which allows direct access to our Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs). The DPA clearly delineates the roles and responsibilities between the GSA contracting officer and the ordering contracting officer and complies with the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) executive agent designation to GSA.

DPA requestors must have a .gov or .mil email address. Requestors who do not have a .gov or .mil email address must submit a copy of their warrant as a federal contracting officer to oasisdpa@gsa.gov for consideration.

HCaTS DPA Training

September 9 and 16, 2021

1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. ET (10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. PT)

The Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS) Program consists of three indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) governmentwide contract vehicles: HCaTS Unrestricted (HCaTS U), HCaTS Small Business (HCaTS SB), and HCaTS 8(a). These vehicles provide reliable, flexible, fast and efficient ways to obtain best-value, customized solutions for human capital management and training requirements.

Before issuing task orders under HCaTS, Federal Contracting Officers (COs) must complete training and receive a Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA). This training covers: basic contract information, scope, ordering process, roles and responsibilities, and resources for HCaTS.
