The list of Air Force operations eyeing the General Services Administration’s One Acquisition Solutions for Integrated Services contracts is growing.
The Air Force Space and Missile Command, according to an Aug. 22 GSA blog post, has officially said it wants to use the dedicated Small Business OASIS contact (OASIS SB) instead of its own SMC Technical Support program. GSA estimated the value of this commitment, which will encompass virtually all Systems Engineering and Technical Assistance (SETA) activities at Los Angeles Air Force Base, at $472 million over five years.
On July 31, GSA released two OASIS requests for proposals. One is an unrestricted contract that includes a 50-percent small business subcontracting goal. OASIS SB is a 100-percent small business set-aside.
Two other Air Force groups — the Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio and the Air Force Test and Evaluation Center at Eglin Air Force Base in Florida — have publicly announced their decision to use OASIS SB, according to a GSA spokeswoman. Those commitments and the latest announcement combine to represent an estimated value of $1.3 billion per year for the OASIS small business community.
