OASIS SB - Pool 1

OASIS UPDATE 10/22/18: Due Date Extended to November 13, 2018.

GSA released OASIS SB Pool 1 Q & A’s on 9/30/18. The Q & A’s state you can bid as a CTA with a first-tier subcontractor and then use that company's projects as pool qualification, primary and secondary projects.

“Relevant experience projects must be as the prime, not as a subcontractor. However, Offerors may propose prime contracts performed by its first tier subcontractors in accordance with Section L.5.1.10.”

Providing a first-tier sub that you partner with (in an official agreement that meets all of their requirements) has prime experience, you may use it.

As we understand it, first-tier would be a subcontractor with whom you already have worked with in the past, which must be outlined in your CTA.

Fedmarket's OASIS SB Proposals Services Reduce Proposal Writing Costs and Ensures Compliance.

Fedmarket offers full-service proposal writing for OASIS SB, or you have the option of purchasing the OASIS SB model proposal and preparing the proposal on your own. The model includes detailed instructions, and model text to assist you in completing your proposal.

Either option will save days of proposal writing time. Not to mention the proposal writer migraines' caused by an overly complex solicitation.

In addition OASIS SB proposal writing is a complex file manipulation effort requiring great care to ensure full compliance. Our experience is that GSA will use any small non-compliance reason to reject your proposal to reduce the enormity of evaluating hundreds of proposal.

Fedmarket's OASIS SB Proposal services give companies a head start in preparing the proposal. Setting up the proposal volumes required by GSA can take several days of an experienced proposal writer's time.

The GSA OASIS Program Office hosted an informational meeting on July 10, 2018. Slides and a "cheatsheet" were presented during the session.
