The OASIS follow-on: BIC MAC — The Conversation Continues!
Over the last three months, the General Services Administration has been engaging stakeholders across the procurement community, sharing its initial thoughts on the potential acquisition strategy for the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) follow-on, which GSA has named the Best-in-Class Multi-Agency Contract, or “BIC MAC.”
Coalition members appreciate the opportunity to engage with GSA, and they appreciate the agency’s commitment to stakeholder engagement. The three meetings GSA has held with Coalition members have been helpful in clarifying the agency’s thought process and outlook regarding this critical follow-on procurement. To this end, the conversation continues. Next week GSA will be hosting a virtual industry day focusing on BIC MAC. The public announcement of the meeting can be found here.
In 2013, GSA launched the OASIS program with small and other-than-small business contracts for complex, integrated services. Since that time, the program has been transformational. After contract performance began in 2014, both OASIS and OASIS SB quickly became strategic acquisition vehicles for GSA’s customers, including DoD. Over the last five-and-a-half years, the contracts accounted for $30 billion in customer agency mission support, with over $10 billion of acquisitions in 2020 alone. Given the strategic role OASIS has played and will continue to play in support agency missions, GSA’s outreach to customer agencies and industry partners is timely and vital in assessing the way forward for BIC MAC, as this program will be a critical channel within the overall services marketplace managed by GSA.
