OASIS+ will provide federal customers a comprehensive suite of services-based solutions with enhanced competition at the task-order level. The focus will be on professional services including engineering and consulting services. It is positioned to succeed OASIS when its ordering period ends in 2024.
OASIS+ will be a Tier 3 Best-in-Class (BIC) Contract, meaning the contract exhibits certain preferred characteristics on the tiered ratings scale the Office of Management and Budget uses to evaluate agency spend. Multiple contract types (e.g., Fixed Price, Cost Plus Fixed Fee, Cost Plus Award Fee, Cost Reimbursement, Time & Materials and Labor Hour) are included in this contract vehicle across both commercial and non-commercial items.
The vehicle type will be a Multiple Award Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) and while the duration is “TBD”, it will likely be ~10 years of performance.
All contractors can bid, but a contractor must meet/exceed a qualification threshold as described below to receive an award. The OASIS+ family of contract programs includes the following contract vehicles:
1) Unrestricted (UR) Contract,
2) 100 percent Small Business (SB) Set-aside Contract
3) 100 percent Woman Owned Small Business (WOSB) Set-aside Contract
4) 100 percent 8(a) Contract
5) 100 percent Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) Set-aside Contract, and
6) 100 percent Historically Underutilized Business Zone (HUBZone) Small Business Set-aside Contract.
Offerors must bid using a self-scoring methodology (through a “credit” based approach) to win a seat on OASIS+. Under OASIS+ there are eight (8) Domains that offerors can apply for:
1) Technical & Engineering
2) Management & Advisory
6) Research and Development
8) Enterprise Solutions (Only available to vendors on OASIS+ Unrestricted)
OASIS+ requires the completion of a “qualification matrix” specific to each domain with a minimum credit threshold to win award. Offerors must meet or exceed the designated qualification threshold which encompasses credits related to project experience, applicable business systems and certifications. For example, under the OASIS+ unrestricted solicitation, there is a 42 out of 50 credit minimum necessary to qualify for the Technical & Engineering Domain.
Relevant experience is given credit for several factors including:
Contractor business systems
From an approved business systems perspective, offerors under the unrestricted solicitation can claim credits for:
