The General Services Administration (GSA) has recently begun two proposals to cut contracting costs for professional services. These two bids combine under a master contract vehicle calledOne Acquisition Solution for Integrated Services (OASIS). One of the plans under OASIS will administer contracts to large businesses, while the other will serve smaller businesses.

The GSA believes this split will diminish duplicate contracts for a wide range of professional services, such as management, consulting, professional engineering, logistics and finance. Additionally, the GSA believes that this plan will decrease unnecessary spending and cut down rising acquisition costs, which has become one of the federal government’s largest enemies in its fight to cut spending.

To combat decreased government spending for contractors, companies must focus on executing a focused government sales strategy so they are not classified as a duplicate contract or extraneous expense and result in being cut. A successful government sales strategy can be achieved through the help and advice from a professional consultant, which specializes in GSA contract management, consultation, and government sales. The guidance that a professional service can provide will help direct any company, large or small through the specificities of OASIS and enable them to eliminate the fear of losing government contract sales.
