OASIS Would be One-Stop Integrated Services Shop
April 17, 2013
The General Services Administration wants to be the government’s source for complex, integrated services, such as financial management, logistics and program management.
Today, agencies are standing up separate contracts for these services because there isn’t a single contract that easily supports their requirements, Jim Ghiloni, director of GSA’s One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services program management office, said in an interview.
Market research firm Deltek estimates the long-awaited OASIS contract could be worth $12 billion and will be awarded in September, on par with Ghiloni’s expected autumn timeframe for an award. GSA is considering not having a ceiling at all, Ghiloni said.
“We don’t know what the business is going to be on OASIS [because] it’s not replacing anything,” he said. “There is nothing that I can look at and base a ceiling on.”
