Get Ready for OASIS On-Ramps: Webinar Thursday Oct. 20

When the General Services Administration created the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) contract vehicle several years ago, it was clear the Air Force would be a major buyer. Since then, OASIS has gained traction with buyers from the Army to the Navy to Homeland Security, who are set to use the vehicle for hundreds of millions of dollars in professional services spending.

Companies that missed out on OASIS the first time around will have a chance to get on starting this fall. GSA will release an on-ramp for the financial services segment of the contract in early November. In subsequent months, we can expect on-ramps to other segments of OASIS from engineering services and management consulting to R&D.

It’s imperative for any professional services contractor not already on OASIS to start getting ready for the on-ramps now. One way to start is by joining Nation Analytics and our partners RASA and Set-Aside Alert for a webinar on Thursday, Oct. 20. We’ll cover the basics of the OASIS contract vehicle, the on-ramping process and the scorecard evaluation methodology GSA will use to pick winners.

The scorecard evaluation approach is heavily data-driven. Using our expertise in federal procurement data, Nation Analytics has developed estimated cut scores and competitive intelligence models for Alliant 2, VETS 2 and OASIS. We can help you make bid/no-bid decisions, assess your odds of winning and help identify ways you can maximize your score.

Please join us on the 20th. Registration and details are at the link below:
