Evaluation Criteria

To receive a Domain award, the offer must meet or exceed a specified qualification threshold. The Offeror has the discretion to use any combination of qualifications detailed in the qualification matrix to achieve the threshold. The qualifications matrix includes both project experience and other relevant qualifications (e.g., corporate level qualifications, applicable certifications).

Ultimately, the Offeror is responsible for clearly demonstrating that the claimed criteria are met. GSA will remove from consideration any proposal element where the Offeror does not clearly demonstrate that the claimed criteria is met, based on being non-responsive (non-compliant) to the solicitation requirements.

Criteria in the Qualifications Matrix fall into the following categories:

OASIS+ Enrollment & Awards

According to GSA, OASIS Plus (OASIS+) will be an open enrollment opportunity, with the intention of enrolling more contractors. GSA intends to award separate IDIQ contracts under each of the following categories:

  • 8(a) small business
  • HUBZone small business
  • Service-disabled veteran-owned small business
  • Total small business
  • Women-owned small business
  • Unrestricted

Qualification standards for each IDIQ will be designed to achieve targeted socioeconomic representation. Unrestricted solicitations may require a higher qualifying threshold and additional qualifying criteria, such as: past performance exceeding subcontracting goals, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions disclosures, experience performing IAW applicable labor laws (e.g., Service Contract Labor Standards, Collective Bargaining Agreements), experience with and/or plan to support other priorities (e.g., AbilityOne and minority-owned SBs).

Proposal Preparation

GSA OASIS Plus (OASIS+) is a Self-Scoring solicitation, meaning bidders score themselves on one or more factors according to the evaluation criteria (or evaluation matrix) and provide documentation to support their assertions. To succeed in this endeavored:

  1. a bidder must understand the qualification requirements and evaluation criteria
  2. recognize its qualifications that best match the requirements and achieve the highest score
  3. gather and provide documentation and evidence to substantiate those qualifications

Compared to other solicitations, in self-scoring solicitations each bidder must do the work of both a bidder and a contracting officer at the same time.

Oasis+ Articles

  • In this comprehensive article, we explore the benefits of partnering for the OASIS program, finding the right partner, and developing a successful partnership. If you’re a small business seeking to participate in the OASIS program, read on to learn more about how partnering can help you succeed. Large companies can also use this article to streamline their partnering process to expand into other domains in OASIS+.

  • This article discusses why you should care about these tasks, what they entail, and why you should not wait until the Full RFP drops to start your proposal preparation process. Also, note that we are nearing summer when many company staff and resources might be on vacation. You don’t want to face a situation where the RFP drops and you don’t have your best people available. And worst is that you would have to start from scratch with minimum staff.

  • Tools you need for OASIS Plus Submission

    This article discusses the tools needed for each phase of the OASIS Plus program. We assume that the reader has a firm grasp of the requirements, the scoring system, the Qualifying Projects (QPs), the Federal Experience Projects (FEPs), and the Systems and Certifications factors and how they play into making up the final score. (For further reading on the scoring system, refer to my webinars on the scoring system on our GDI Consulting website).

  • OASIS+ is considered a great opportunity for businesses, especially small businesses, to provide services for the Federal government. For starters, OASIS+ will support all contract pricing types at the task order level, which means that a business does not need to provide pricing with a proposal. GSA’s goal is to provide agencies with easier access to innovative professional services from businesses that are qualified.
