    Hello - Thank you for all the information!  I am wondering if there is a closing date to fill out the Industry Contact Form?
    OASIS Blogger
    Thank you for your question. A closing date for accepting submissions to the Industry Contact Form has not been set and will likely stay open throughout the process. Thanks for the question. Jim

    Welcome Back!Thank you for this feedback.  Our firm concurs with this approach; however the draft review will depend on the breadth of the documents.   Allowing 4 weeks for the review process should be sufficient.

    Good Afternoon Jim,I have read through the blogs, but I have not seen a reference to facility clearances. Will a clearance be a requirement for OASIS and OASIS SB? Thanks.

    Is there going to be a Industry Day in 2013?
    OASIS Blogger
    Hi Ray, and thank you for your question. We are currently examining a variety of event possibilities for 2013. Please check with us over the next several weeks for updates. We hope to have some information for our Industry Partners soon. Jim

    Jim,Have you decided on what the past performance limit will be for OASIS (i.e., 3 yrs., 5 yrs. etc.).  Also, is the OASIS team still entertaining visits/one-on-ones with prospective vendors?  Thanks, Scott

    Hi Scott and thanks for the questions.  Right now, we are planning for references to have been performed within the past three years.  The feedback strategy for interacting with Industry after release of the draft RFPs hasn’t been set yet...Read More

    Why is there no pre-soliciation information within FBO?  How will busineeses know when the draft RFP/RFP has been released?  What is the communication mechanism? Thanks in advance.

    Hello and thanks for the questions.  There is no pre-solicitation information to be shared yet.  The draft RFPs will be issued on FBO.  That FBO announcement will direct interested parties to the OASIS email inbox and the OASIS Interact...Read More

    The OASIS Team is always soliciting input on our contracts. Recently, we received feedback from federal agency representatives that OASIS would potentially be an even more attractive contract vehicle if it included a geographic pricing structure.

    Jim,Thanks for your continued outreach!Our recommendation is that OASIS not include regional pricing.  While the concept of different rates for different parts of the country sounds appealing, it quickly becomes very unwieldy and would not deliver...Read More

    The GSA ANSWER Program provided quite a few of us with insights into the effectiveness and complexities of geographical pricing.  The very positive side of the equation is that it seemed to be strongly attractive to the clients in remote areas, who...Read More

    Can you please clarify what the On-Ramp and Off-Ramp means?  I assume it means if you are small-biz and graduate, you would be moved up to the big-business track?

    Posting the names of your team members is to be commended.  All too often government tries to keep things a secret that are not.  As a former member of the GSA team it's gratifying to see you lead.  Keep it up.

    We appreciate the feedback, Bob. The OASIS team believes that transparency is key to the success of this solution.  Jim
