The General Services Administration moved one step closer to launching an overarching contract vehicle for professional services Thursday by releasing two draft requests for proposals.
The agency is inviting comments on the draft RFPs and through its GSA Interact system.
The contract vehicle, known as One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services, or OASIS, would include contracts for accounting, communication, security and transportation, among other services.
OASIS would be an indefinite delivery, indefinite quantity contract that would last 10 years in its first incarnation, according to the draft RFPs. GSA’s two draft solicitions were a general RFP and another focused on small businesses.

The General Services Administration is leaning toward splitting its next major multiple award IT contract into two parts: one that would be unrestricted and one for small businesses.
Jim Ghiloni, the program manager for the One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) contract, wrote in a blog postthat this is GSA’s “current thinking.”
“GSA believes this approach affords the opportunity for the broadest participation by all small businesses in the industry and will provide a vehicle that will facilitate agencies’ ability to comply with the small business set-aside procedures and manage their small business program goals,” Ghiloni wrote in the blog.
The small business set-aside would be for firms who qualify as 8(a), service- disabled veteran owned, Historically Underutilized Business Zone and women-owned. The unrestricted contract would be open to all vendors.
