The OASIS contract addresses the government's need for a hybrid, government-wide acquisition vehicle. It offers a streamlined solution for both commercial and non-commercial requirements for professional services. The contract helps to improve efficiency levels across all agencies and departments of the federal government by driving down costs and reducing duplication of contracting efforts with comprehensive, integrated contract options.

The company presently has employee strength of approximately 13,000, serving customers in the U.S. government civil agencies and selected commercial markets.
