The General Services Administration has given federal agencies the go-ahead to use the unrestricted portion of a contract vehicle to procure human capital strategy, training and development and organizational performance support services.
GSA said Monday that 77 vendors won contracts under the Human Capital and Training Solutions Unrestricted vehicle.
The agency awarded the HCaTS acquisition vehicle in partnership with the Office of Personnel Management as part of OPM’s Training and Management Assistance program.
Denise Turner Roth, GSA administrator and an inductee into Executive Mosaic’s Wash100 for 2016, said HCATS seeks to provide federal agencies a category-specific platform to gain access to human capital and training services.
GSA and OPM will respectively perform contract administration and program management functions for the HCaTS procurement vehicle.
The vehicle’s small business portion is currently under a stay of performance, GSA noted.
GSA awarded 109 contractors in May positions on HCaTS Unrestricted and HCaTS SB contracts worth up to $11.5 billion combined with an ordering period of 10 and a half years and an additional five years to complete task orders.
