    Hello, Industry! The next blog you hear from me, hopefully very soon, will announce the release of the final RFPs.  In fact, that blog has already been written.  So, much like “Let It Be” was recorded before “Abbey Road” but released afterwards, I will post these final thoughts in a not-final blog.  (Yes, I did just implicitly compare this blog to the Beatles oeuvre.  I apologize to the Fab Four!)

    I was under the impression that the OASIS Large and OASIS SB would come out under different timeframes instead of both on the same day.  Is the still the case or will both come out together?

    The contracts will be issued and awarded together.  We have maintained this from the beginning.

    A few days ago we posted the revised RFPs which we promised at our Industry Day in mid-May.  I hope by now that you’ve had time to review the documents and look forward to your comments and feedback.  In this blog entry I’d like to discuss some of the major changes we made.

    We’ve been receiving feedback on the revised OASIS draft solicitations and we want to thank everyone for their diligence in helping us make the solicitations clearer, better, and stronger.  We feel, and we have heard your feedback, that releasing the draft solicitations and collaborating on ideas has been beneficial to everyone involved in the process.

    We are past Memorial Day, almost into summer, and have moved even closer to release of the Final RFPs for OASIS and OASIS SB.  I wanted to provide a quick update to everyone on where we are in the process.

    We here on the OASIS Team put a lot of thought into the Highest Technically Rated with Acceptable Pricing approach, as well as our objective, quantitative scoring methodology.

    Jim- At industry day, your presentation mentioned that "You know GSA's view on teaming?" Is the GSA encouraging teaming for OASIS, or would they rather see individual companies have the breadth of experience to cover all the areas? I know...Read More

    Thanks for the question.  As apparent in the questions and answers, we encourage teaming at the task order level, but see very limited value in teaming at the contract level.  Jim

      Hello, Industry Community! As promised, we are posting the latest version of the questions and answers about the OASIS draft solicitations.  We have grouped the questions/feedback as General, Clarifications, or Recommendations.  Please read all three files. Thanks so much to everyone who has participated in this process.  We feel the solicitations will be much better products as a result. We look forward to further feedback from you via our inbox at oasis@gsa.gov.

    It has been quite a while since we conducted our OASIS Naming Survey. I’d like to thank everyone who responded here on Interact as well as all of the GSA employees who helped us brainstorm the initial selection of names.
