Businesses will have 10 to 14 days after the government shutdown ends to submit proposals for the General Services Administration’s One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS) request for proposals, according to an Oct. 7 notice on Fed Biz Opps.
GSA said in the notice that while it has not determined the precise date, it released the time frame to help “assist companies with managing resources during the government shutdown.”
The General Services Administration already is indefinitely extending the deadline for submissions to its OASIS RFP from Oct. 10 because of the ongoing shutdown, according to the agency.
GSA had extended the deadline from Sept. 17 to Oct. 10 in response to feedback it received from the industry.
The agency also had modified the 10-year indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity RFP to make it easier for small businesses to compete for contract spots without having had significant past work with federal agencies, according to the agency.
The OASIS contract will include professional services such as financial management and engineering, scientific and logistics, and has separate sections for small businesses and larger firms.
