Exelis to provide professional services under the General Services Administration's OASIS contract

July 8, 2014



By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Information Technology Newsweekly -- Exelis (NYSE: XLS) has been awarded a contract vehicle by the General Services Administration (GSA) to provide professional services to federal agencies under its One Acquisition Solutions for Integrated Services, or OASIS, program.

Exelis will compete with other contractors for task orders under the multiple-award, indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity vehicle. OASIS enables customers to acquire professional services for integrated solutions efficiently and economically. Although the program has no ceiling value, it is a multibillion dollar vehicle. The contract has a five-year base and one five-year option allowing for long-term planning for complex program requirements.

"GSA has created a dynamic contractor pool for all Department of Defense and federal agencies, including the U.S. Air Force, to provide flexible and innovative solutions to satisfy mission requirements," said Pam Drew, president of Exelis Information Systems. "Exelis looks forward to this new opportunity to sustain and expand our high-end professional engineering, scientific, program management, management consulting, and logistics services support."

The GSA developed six contractor "pools" under OASIS based solely upon size standards for small businesses and larger firms. Exelis received awards in unrestricted Pool 1 and Pool 3 to provide customers with partial or total solutions within the following categories: communication, compliance, defense, disaster, energy, environment, financial, health, intelligence, security and transportation.
