Happy Birthday OASIS!

Today, GSA, our customers, and our industry partners have much to celebrate -- two years ago, GSA awarded OASIS and OASIS SB to provide federal agencies a flexible and innovative solution for their complex professional services requirements. So, join us in saying Happy Birthday OASIS! 

Over 1,300 Delegation of Procurement Authorities (DPA) awarded to date

In those two years, the OASIS Program Office has given 168 delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA) training sessions to more than 4,800 Federal employees. It has delegated Ordering Contracting Officer (OCO) authority to over 1,400 qualified Contracting Officers in over 300 Contracting Offices across 34 Federal agencies, worldwide. DPA trainings give Contracting Officers access to the vehicles and teach best practices for task order issuance. A full listing of DPA locations can be found here. For more information, including how to request DPA training, visit our website.

Approximately $5.1 billion dollars in complex professional services awarded 

Over the last two years, an estimated $5.1 billion dollars in complex professional services have been awarded against the OASIS contracts.  As of the end of April 2016, 213 task orders with an estimated value of $2.98 billion over their term have been awarded against the OASIS SB contracts, with 71 task orders with an estimated value of $2.17 billion awarded against the OASIS Unrestricted contracts. We expects these numbers to increase exponentially as agencies experience the success of acquiring quality professional services through the flexible, easy-to-use OASIS acquisition platform.

Memoranda of Understanding (MOU) signed with the Air Force, Army, DHS and NAVAIR

In the past two years, GSA has signed MOUs with the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Army, the Department of Homeland Security, and NAVAIR. OASIS and OASIS SB streamline the professional services acquisition process, while also eliminating costly, duplicative contracts.  OASIS and OASIS SB provide the tools they need to more effectively meet their missions, while also saving time and money.  Each MOU can be viewed here.

Labor Estimating Tool & Discovery Market Research Tool launched

We launched two powerful tools to support agencies with acquisition planning and market research. The labor estimating tool provides access to specific performance location wage data for more than 800 occupations in the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Standard Occupational Classification system at 640 geographic locations across the United States and its territories. Customers can generate a task order labor cost estimate by manipulating the data with the lowest, average, and highest offered markup rates. Plans are underway to update the estimating tool so users can adjust direct wage data to other pricing applications, including the Fixed-Price and Cost Reimbursement task orders. 

The Discovery Market Research Toollets customers generate an appropriate list of active sources for fair opportunity competition in the appropriate OASIS Pool based on the OASIS vehicle and projected primary NAICS code for the requirement. It also lets users identify the viability of task order socio-economic set-asides and capture detailed integrated information for each potential competitor.

Thank you to all our federal agency customers and industry partners for your invaluable contributions to the OASIS program. We look forward to many more successes in the coming years.For more information on OASIS and OASIS SB, visit GSA’sOASIS website

<p>I realize this is an old post, but I am not sure where a more appropriate place would be to ask a question on this.&nbsp; In reviewing the MOU between GSA and the Air Force (effective 19 DEC 2013), section 2 of the MOU states that the &quot;CAF shall be 0.10% for the first CAF computation period that ends on 30 DEC 2015&quot;.&nbsp; The MOU goes on to further describe the computation and CAF calculation process stating: &quot;[a]t the conclusion of the first term as described in the previous paragraph, the OASIS Program Office will sum all obligations from DoDAACs beginning with &#39;FA&#39; to set the fee for orders in the following year.&nbsp; The client [USAF] shall be notified no later than Jan 2016 of the appropriate CAF to be assigned for orders issued in that year.&quot;&nbsp; While I don&#39;t doubt that the AF has met its obligations to consititue a continued reduced CAF of 0.10%, does an amendment need to be issued to the MOU to confirm the appropriate CAF for subsequent CAF computation periods?&nbsp; If this has been addressed in another manner, is it posted somewhere on the OASIS Dashboard so that OASIS U and OASIS SB contact holders can be sure of the correct CAF to propose for orders let by the AF contracting office?</p>
