The General Services Administration has declared its OASIS professional services contract vehicle as ready for business after both the Government Accountability Office and the Court of Federal Claims have denied all protests related to the program.

Federal agencies now have access to commercial and non-commercial professional services through OASIS, which GSA awarded positions on through a full-and-open competition, GSA said Wednesday.

Seventy-four firms will compete to provide professional services to agencies under OASIS (click here to see a full list of winners in our previous coverage).

“OASIS and OASIS SB have already become the solutions of choice for some of our customers, ” said Tom Sharpe, commissioner of GSA’s Federal Acquisition Service.

The Air Force announced in December that it would acquire systems engineering, research and development and other services through OASIS and its small business counterpart, OASIS SB.

Sharpe said GSA will carry out OASIS with the goal of “minimizing contract duplication and improving efficiency, while also delivering solid benefits to the selected OASIS and OASIS SB industry partners and maximizing opportunities for small businesses.”
