GSA anticipates awarding OASIS contracts to firms that primarily provide knowledge-based services through the knowledge and skills of their professional employees in a manner that delivers a total solution to agency requirements. The primary professional service disciplines covered by OASIS include program management and consulting, professional engineering, logistics, and financial.
GSA believes that the general scope of services to be provided through OASIS are those professional services generally defined within the North American Industrial Classification System (NAICS) as provided in industry Sector 54, Professional, Scientific, and Technical Services, except those services that may be elsewhere specifically excluded.
Our preliminary market research suggests that the specific NAICS code, 541611, would best represent the primary services to be provided under task orders. Therefore, GSA is considering using this NAICS code as the primary code for the OASIS master contract solicitation.
When selecting an appropriate NAICS code for OASIS, our team considered these factors:
1. Covers the scope of OASIS
2. Dollar amount contract size standard of $14 million.
3. NAICS covers a business objective not IT objective
4. Broad enough NAICS that provides for the complex integrated services outlined in the scope
Our preliminary market research suggests that the specific NAICS code, 541611 would best represent the primary services to be provided under task orders. The Census definition for NAICS 541611 is Administrative Management and General Management Consulting Services. Moving forward, GSA is now considering using this NAICS code as the primary code for the OASIS master contract solicitation.
I’d like to get your feedback on this decision. Do you feel that NAICS 541611 is appropriate for OASIS? If not, which code would be more appropriate, and why?
I look forward to reading your responses.
