GSA Draft RFP: GSA’s OASIS+ MAC Draft Request for Proposal

Notice ID 47QRCA21N0001

GSA’s Office of Professional Services and Human Capital (PSHC) is pleased to announce the release of the draft Request for Proposal (RFP) for the OASIS+ Program, bringing the agency one step closer to standing up the next generation Best-in-Class Multi-Agency Contracts for complex non-IT services.

The draft RFP, posted on SAM.gov, contains all sections of the solicitation and qualification matrices for the Unrestricted and Total Small Business vehicles. The qualification matrices for all proposed socioeconomic vehicles that will be included in the final RFP will mirror the Total Small Business qualification matrices.

Since December 2021, PSHC has released program updates and sections of the draft RFP to foster open and continuous communication with industry partners and customer agencies. The agency has carefully considered feedback received and key acquisition considerations in developing the draft RFP. Feedback is sought on all areas of the draft RFP; however, specific areas highlighted include significant updates where input is requested. A survey link is provided to obtain industry feedback on the areas highlighted below:

NAICS codes: A change to FAR 19.102(b)(2) on September 23, 2022 will require GSA to utilize

a different acquisition strategy with respect to NAICS codes.

  • Prior to the FAR change, the original OASIS+ strategy required GSA to assign multiple NAICS codes to each OASIS+ IDIQ and Domain. Each NAICS code within a particular Domain would have represented a separate fair opportunity pool.
  • The FAR change delayed the ability of Contracting Officers to assign multiple NAICS codes to multiple award contracts. Therefore, GSA adjusted its strategy to award the master contract under one NAICS code that represents each awardee’s primary industry.
  • While GSA is unable to to assign multiple NAICS codes to OASIS+ in FPDS, the scope of each OASIS+ Domain will identify a NAICS code (and in some cases, it’s related exceptions) that best describes the principal purpose of the services available through said Domain in order to establish a small business size standard. Fair opportunity pools will now be established at the Domain level, including separate pools for exceptions where applicable
  • The small business size standard associated with each principal purpose NAICS code will determine an Offeror’s eligibility to compete for Domains under the small business IDIQs.
