GETTING STARTED: OASIS One-on-One Feedback Sessions

Hello Industry! As mentioned in a blog posting last week about one-on-one feedback sessions, we are in the process of developing a methodology for conducting these sessions between Industry and the OASIS team.

In order to get things started, the team has created a list of ground rules for the one-on-one sessions as well as a framework and cover sheet for submitting white papers, which you can find immediately below this message.  We view this activity as an important market research component of the OASIS development process.  As a reminder, these one-on-one meetings are intended to contribute to the content of the draft Request for Proposal (RFP), which will be released summer 2012.

Please take a close look at the ground rules and send us your agreement at oasis@gsa.gov. We look forward to reading your papers!

Mr. Ghiloni,

Can you please clarify if July 12th is the deadline for Step 1 (as outlined above) of the one-on-one meeting request process? In other words, do we need to have our completed ground rules form and meeting request in by that date?  Thank you very much for the clarification.

Hi Jason, thank you for visiting the OASIS Industry Community on GSA Interact. Yes, July 12, 2012 is the deadline to complete the white paper and agree to the ground rules re: GSA Oasis One-on-One feedback sessions. Please submit your white paper and acceptance of the ground rules to oasis@gsa.gov No Later Than July 12, 2012. I hope this helps to clarify. Thank you!

Have you contemplated issuing a sample task order as part of the evaluation criteria?  This approach would, I think, permit offerors an opportunity to respond to a sample task order as opposed to an overall SOW.  It would permit offerors the ability to focus on a solution to a hypothetical problem rather than an abstract RFP.

Hi Stephen, and thank you for your feedback regarding sample task orders. We are currently leaning toward not issuing a sample task order as part of the evaluation criteria. However, we will take your suggestion into consideration as we continue refining the evaluation process.

OASIS Acquisition Team,

 

I have read over and over that the OASIS contract will be for professional services.  Is it being  contemplated, that if for example a federal customer needs a Laboratory renovated, that this contract will allow for the management/design of the lab, and purchase and installation/checkout of equipment?  It would be an advantage if the OASIS contract could be a one stop/ one award contract to get a complete and usable facility.  As a former federal customer of GSA contracts and services, I would have loved to use such a GSA “services contract”  Maybe this is  the plan and I am missing it.

Thanks

Hello, John. Thanks for your feedback. OASIS is intended to provide a total solution for professional service requirements. The scope is professional services, therefore the primary objective of  the requirement must be professional services. However,  OASIS will allow for non-professional services and products as lesser components as necessary to deliver the total solution. The draft RFP is expected to be released at the end of this summer which will provide additional clarification on the scope of OASIS.

Hello Jim,

Regarding the White Paper Questions; Scope (item #2), If possible, please provide links to detailed information regarding a) DoD Taxonomy of Services for Knowledge Based Services, and b) Federal Enterprise Architecture (FEA).

Thank you.

Good afternoon Jim,

According to the OASIS One-On-One Ground Rule #12, The window to schedule a One-on-One session begins June 11, 2012 and ends July 12, 2012.  Can GSA please clarify, is this window of time available for requesting a one-on-one or is the window in which the meetings will be actually held (i.e., no one-on-one meetings after July 12, 2012)?

Could you also please clarify what you mean by "send us your agreement" at oasis@gsa.gov?  Does the email requesting a one-on-one meeting serve as the 'agreement'?

Thank you.

Hello Joe, thank you for your interest. The time frame between June 11, 2012 and July 12, 2012 marks the beginning of the window to schedule a one-on-one feedback session with the OASIS team. It does not mean that all one-on-one meetings need to take place before July 12, 2012.
 
Scheduling the one-on-one feedback sessions is a 2 Step Process:
 
Step 1: Fill out responses to questions asked in the document below (oasis_one-on-one_ground-rules.docx). The white paper shall be marked proprietary and sent via email to oasis@gsa.gov.
Step 2:  For those industry partners who have completed step one, you must agree to the Ground Rules detailed in the document and schedule a one-on-one meeting with the OASIS team. The meeting request and agreement to the Ground Rules should be sent via email to oasis@gsa.gov.
 
Hope this helps!
 
Jim
