OASIS provides support for Commercial and Non-Commercial requirements, which means any contract type may be utilized.
North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) Pools
Services under OASIS span 28 NAICS codes and 6 exceptions or 34 codes - exceptions in all. These 34 codes/exceptions are allocated among 7 NAICS code pools. All codes/exceptions in a pool share a common small business (SB) size standard. Agencies can solicit task order proposals from contractors holding awards in the pool with the NAICS code that matches the agency’s requirement.
Standardized Labor Categories
The labor categories are aligned with occupations, as outlined in the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system.
OASIS offers more meaningful proposed rate comparisons at the task order level – apples to apples, and 104 OASIS LCATs (individual and groups and priced at the master contract level) cover 127 OMB SOC occupations and over 1,000 typical industry job titles.
The remainder of the 840 SOC occupations can be added and priced at the task order level as ancillary labor.
