The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) announced February 26, 2014 that Whitney, Bradley & Brown (WBB) has won an award under the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) Small Business track contract. This contract vehicle and subsequent task orders – valued at as much as $10 billion over 15 years – will provide government customers with a variety of management consulting, program management, financial, logistics, engineering, and scientific services.
“WBB is excited to be a part of the GSA OASIS-SB contract,” Mike Perez, WBB’s Chief Development Officer, said. “It gives us another way to provide our customers across the federal government with high quality consulting, program management, financial, logistics, engineering and scientific services.”
The OASIS contract has two parts: a full and open, unrestricted procurement; and a separate small-business set-aside known as OASIS-SB. WBB has won a place under the OASIS-SB track, under which agencies may release task orders to obtain services and credit on their small business contracting goals. While agencies still may use the GSA’s Multiple Award Schedules Program to meet their support services needs, OASIS allows for standardized labor categories and all contract types at the task-order level, including cost-reimbursement and cost plus contracts.
The OASIS-SB contract already has become the go-to contract for several agencies, including the U.S. Air Force, which has pledged to use OASIS-SB in place of its former Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contracts.
