    A: OASIS can be used for Professional, SETA, A&AS work; NETCENTS is only for IT work (although OASIS has been seeing some IT work bundled with non-IT work); OASIS Pool 1 has a very large scope (large enough to “drive a truck through it” :)); NETCENTS SB Apps has recently had a ceiling increase and a POP extension
