    I believe that OASIS Open and OASIS Reserved are the most descriptive of the choices so that is my vote.

    This blog post describes the reasons Ordering Officers sometimes need to include provision/clauses from the FAR or from their agency's FAR Supplement in Schedule task orders.  When we say that ordering agencies may add "non-conflicting" provisions/clauses to their RFQs, what do we mean?

    It was definitely a long road to get to this point but the BPAs for PM/CPI Services have been awarded and are ready for use by anyone eligible to order from the Multiple Award Schedules.  Our own Brad deMers was the contracting officer and once he gets this program completely launched, you'll be seeing a lot more of him here on the SOS pages.

    Happy Monday - Part of the importance of effective project management within the milieu of Federal contracting consists of proper funds management.  This includes timely (or even streamlining) close out of orders/contracts and return of funds to our clients.  When new leadership came on board, we endeavored to make this a priority.  We had a "wave"/30-challenge back in October 2012, which resulted in almost all old orders being closed out and millions of dollars returned to clients.

    Update:  We had a WebEx this afternoon which lasted nearly two hours which provided a comprehensive overview of the NITCP and the implementation of the Reverse Auction Tool.  My special thanks to Teresa Carrington, Director of the NITCP and her staff for a very insightful meeting and discussion.  We had close to 40 participants representing Financial Management, CAR, AAS, and AOD.  It was even more special because several PBS associates attended the event.  So, it was truly an enterprise-wide discussion.
