The objective of OASIS+ is to provide Government agencies with total integrated solutions for a multitude of services-based requirements on a global basis. These services requirements may call for solutions that cross multiple disciplines, include ancillary support, maybe commercial and/or non-commercial, using a variety of contract types, including fixed price (all types), cost reimbursement (all types), time and materials/labor hour, or a hybrid mix of contract types.
Although considered a follow-up of OASIS, this new contracting vehicle has expanded the its scope to include functional areas from GSA’s other government-wide contract vehicle solutions, such as BMO (Building, Maintenance and Operations) and HCaTS (Human Capital and Training Solutions). It is is available for use by all Federal agencies and other entities as listed in GSA Order ADM 4800.2I, Eligibility to Use GSA Sources of Supply and Service as amended.
The contract scope is organized by Domains (functional groupings of related services spanning multiple NAICS codes). The Domains that are currently within scope of the Master Contract are:
- Management and Advisory
- Technical and Engineering
- Research and Development
- Intelligence Services
- Enterprise Solutions
- Environmental Services
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:
- Qualifying Project Experience: The Offeror may propose using a maximum of 5 Qualifying Projects (QPs). The Offeror is limited to only 5 QPs to achieve QP-based criteria. A number of criteria in the qualifications matrix are derived from these QPs. Relevance: With respect to Relevance of QPs, that criterion is based on Relevance to the specific Domain’s scope.
- Federal Experience: these qualifications do not need to come from the QPs, and can be obtained through other projects if These qualifications will generally apply across OASIS+ Domains.
- Government-approved systems and rates: these qualifications are based on systems and rates approved by a cognizant Federal These qualifications will generally apply across OASIS+ Domains.
- Other certifications: these qualifications are based on certifications issued by third party (i.e., non-Governmental) These qualifications will generally apply across OASIS+ Domains.
