OASIS on-ramp awards face new challenges
As we expected, the OASIS Small Business on-ramp process continues to hit snags due to bid protests but it looks like a larger number of challenges may not come.
So far, three companies have filed with the Government Accountability Office saying that GSA made a mistake in not including them among the on-ramp winners.
Last month, GSA named 84 companies to Pool 1, 163 for Pool 3 and 64 for Pool 4. That brought the total number of new companies joining the OASIS SB vehicle to 311.
Not making that list were Immersive Concepts, Systemic Management Services and LCGI-SSAI Joint Venture. Their protests were filed between June 1 and June 15. Decisions are due in September.
It is possible that more protests may be in the works, but the window for filing those to GAO is rapidly closing.
GSA also has to finalize the list after giving time for those who want to challenge the size status of the on-ramp winners. But that window also is closely rapidly.
More on-ramp awards are coming as well. GSA is expected to name 8(a) winners this month, then the on-ramp process begins for the unrestricted portion.
