General Services Administration officials met with federal contractors Thursday at an industry forum to preview an upcoming professional services contract that could be worth up to $10 billion, Washington Technology reports.
Mark Hoover writes the Professional Services Council, the Coalition for Government Procurement, TechAmerica and ACT/IAC sponsored the event, which focused on the government’s use of strategic sourcing contracts.
Jim Ghiloni, a director of business operations at GSA, said he believes the OASIS vehicle will help small businesses winners get name recognition throughout the government and potentially win more business.
Those that do not win in bidding have the opportunity to become stronger in their second bids, Ghiloni said, according to the report.
Jeff Koses, director of GSA’s ofice of acquisition operations, told the audience the government is attempting to form a consistent vocabulary and common language for acquisitions.
