Air Force Opts for GSA’s OASIS Professional Services Vehicle; Randall Culpepper Comments

ContractSigningThe U.S. Air Force and the General Services Administration have inked a memorandum of understanding for the Air Force to apply GSA’s approach to procuring professional services.

GSA’s One Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services and OASIS small business contracts are meant to help agencies address requirements for professional service disciplines and professional services with information technology and additional components, GSA said Thursday.

Randall Culpepper, program executive officer for combat and mission support at Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Acquisition, said the OASIS approach is intended to help the GSA fulfill business goals and workforce requirements for complex acquisitions.

The Air Force seeks to eliminate extra costs for contracts, purchase complex professional services, view labor types and costs, negotiate task order pricing, enhance task order proposal comparison processes and remove requirements for task order contracting officers.

GSA stopped accepting proposals for OASIS and OASIS-small business in November and contract awards are scheduled to start in 2014.

OASIS covers services in areas such as program management, management consulting, logistics, engineering, science and finance.

Constant contact with the enemy in terms of cybersecurity, being able to operate within the [electromagnetic spectrum], all of those. We consider ourselves in contact with the adversary now,” Kohler said.
