There are lots of questions surrounding the GSA OASIS SB Open Season On-Ramp. How many points do you need to consider bidding? How do you know if you’re compliant? If you’re asking yourself these questions, we’ve got the team to answer them. Meet Charlie Shafer, one of our all-star consultants who knows the ins and outs of GSA OASIS.
Charlie has a wealth of experience working on GSA point-system GWAC competitions. He’s been working on these unique procurements for almost five years. Charlie began with HCaTS, which was the first post-OASIS GSA RFP to use the point scoring system format reflected in OASIS, where he provided scoring and compliance analysis through multiple iterations. Charlie had four clients, and all received awards. He also had an Alliant 2 client who won a spot.
We consider Charlie a true proposal strategist. Whether performing as a capture or proposal manager, or even as a color reviewer and writer, Charlie is always thinking strategically. He brings a unique ability to hone in on the evaluation criteria and makes each proposal decision and recommendation – across any position – based on how it works within the intricacies of these criteria. It is a distinctive approach, and one that has garnered him our most sought-after consultant during his seven-year tenure with Red Team.
