“ICYMI…Professional Services Council held a seminar 2/18 on GSA’s Next Generation IDIQ, which is also known as the successor to the current GSA OASIS multiple award GWAC IDIQ. Jill Akridge, Director of Customer Account Management for GSA’s Professional Services Category Team, presented a preview of what to expect from the contract. Here’s what we can expect:
- The new contract will be more than Professional Services. It could also include other Government needs such as Base Operations, which has been requested by the Air Force.
- They are combining small and OTSB contracts into a single vehicle.
- GSA will be using a scorecard approach. Unlike other scorecards, GSA may provide a minimum score needed for entry into a practice area.
- GSA is considering an ongoing open enrollment approach to the contract. Rather than having on-ramp competitions at a predetermined time, contractors who meet qualifications may be able to submit when they meet thresholds to obtain a contract.”
