UPDATED: Name Choices for OASIS - We Want to Hear from You!

Hello, Industry Partners! Since the development phase of OASIS began, we have made significant progress and are just a few details away from releasing the draft RFPs. To better serve our industry partners and maximize opportunities for Small Businesses (SBs), two OASIS contracts have been established: an unrestricted contract with a very high small business subcontracting goal; and a 100 percent Small Business Set-Aside contract that will allow for set-asides based upon special socio-economic status.

Based on feedback from you, our industry partners and agency stakeholders, there is confusion regarding the naming of these two contracts; in particular, when is the discussion referring to OASIS - the unrestricted contract? And when is the discussion referring to OASIS SB - the Small Business Set-Aside contract? In order to resolve this issue, the OASIS team has decided that the unrestricted contract, currently referred to simply as OASIS, must be branded with an appropriate--and recognizable-- name (i.e. OASIS _______)

We recently held an internal brainstorming session and narrowed down a list of potential names. At this point in the process, we’re inviting you to take a short survey to help us decide which of those names is most practical, catchy and self- descriptive of the two OASIS contracts.

The top ranks are:

OASIS Enterprise / OASIS Small Business

OASIS AB / OASIS SB (AB = All Business; SB = Small Business)

OASIS Open / OASIS Reserved

The OASIS team looks forward to your responses.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us via this Interact community; if you prefer, you can also write to the OASIS team at oasis@gsa.gov.

Jim

UPDATE: Note that we have added a survey for your convenience since the blog was originally posted. Please feel free to respond directly to the survey, even if you have previously provided a response either to this blog or via the OASIS inbox. We also want to welcome any alternative names and thoughts- send us your ideas!

<p>MY vote would be &nbsp;for OASIS &nbsp;Open and OASIS Rserved are clear about who can prime the opportunity.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>OASIS Enterprise could imply that &nbsp;is for enterprise work &nbsp;and makes OASIS Small Business appear to hae a subset of the business opportunities.-- it appears to create a distinction that I don&#39;t beleive you would want.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Mary Ellen Condon</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Condon Associates, LLC</p>
