The General Services Administration has informed federal agencies that they can begin using the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services Small Business contract vehicle to acquire professional services.
GSA issued the notice to proceed on OASIS SB after both the Court of Federal Claims and Government Accountability Office dismissed a set of protests filed on the vehicle, GSA said Tuesday.
GSA awarded position on the vehicle to small businesses in February for commercial, non-commercial, multidisciplinary and complex professional services.
Tom Sharpe, commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service, said goals for the OASIS SB program include “minimizing contract duplication and improving efficiency, while also delivering solid benefits to the selected OASIS SB industry partners and maximizing opportunities for small businesses.”
OASIS SB is a 100-percent small business set-aside program that was designed to function as a hybrid, government-wide acquisition vehicle for complex professional services requirements.
