    My RSS Feeds are finally updating but unfortunately they are only posting my Twitter favorites (www.twitter.com/gsaosbu).  So now I need to figure out how to get my Feeds to update from postings.  However, I'm glad to add more information to the site and looking forward to learning more ways to access and share information. Check out the RSS Feeds I have posted.  They include events, contract opportunities and other.  Make sure to follow OSBU on Twitter f

    Please suggest business topics that collaboration would help to improve the communication of information between our agency and our stakeholders.

      Link to the case:  http://www.gao.gov/decisions/bidpro/4018762.htm DIGEST (from GAO) 1. Where solicitation established multiple "tiers" with regard to potential shipping volume that could occur, and the record establishes that the agency considered the offerors' proposed prices under each tier, the agency properly focused its price evaluation on offerors' pricing applicable to the shipping volume the agency expected to experience.

    I'm interested to learn YOUR definition of green acquisition. To put the conversation into context, I work for a small, professional services firm that provides CMa (Construction Manager as agent) services for GSA. We don't design or build anything, but we're GSA's eyes and ears on a construction site. We ensure that buildings are built the way GSA expects, and mitigating risk to the Government.

    The original post by Garrett contained very good points. My view of "Green Services" is that there is a high probability that an all-encompassing definition will not be found. Defining a green service will most likely be...Read More

    To all: Please see the below clause found in a new RFQ that was posted on 3-21-11. This seems to be a reasonable way of handling Green (sustainability) for basic services.15. BUYING GREEN PROCUREMENT Affirmative Procurement (also known as “Green...Read More

    At this time, we would like to let the Industry community know that registration for our OASIS and OASIS SB Industry Day Sessions is now CLOSED. We have reached maximum capacity for all events and at this time we do not have a wait list; however, if space becomes available, we will notify everyone via a new blog posting here on this site. Please note: for those who cannot attend Industry Day, both sessions will be video recorded and available the following week for viewing via Interact.

    Please consider having a wait list or even another industry day. I realize we can view it as a video recording, but we don't get the benefit of interacting with the government or our colleagues. Thanks so much.

    The demand from industry for access is manifest through how quickly the session was populated. The absence of a waiting list or a follow up session, the physical contraints of the venue, and the inclusion of two representatives from each attendee places...Read More

    I am sorry for your obvious disappointment but must disagree that we have placed an unfair burden on firms.  We have limited resources and are trying to make the most of what we have.  As stated many times, no information will be presented at...Read More

    Can you verify that White Papers are *not* required for attendance at the Industry day but only for those participating in the one on one sessions afterwards?
    OASIS Blogger
    You are correct.  White Papers are not required to attend the Industry Day.

    Good morning!For those of us who would like to be on the wait list for any open one-on-one sessions, or for additional ones if added, are there any other steps to notify of intent besides submission of the white paper? I looked and verified that the...Read More

    We will assess our capabilities to add additional one-on-one sessions in the context of the demand as represented by submitted white papers. You do not need to do anything at this point beyond submit the white paper as instructed.

    Were the 2 colleagues I registered online for Industry Day supposed to receive confirmations?
