GSA Issues Notice to Proceed on Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS) Unrestricted Multiple-Award Contracts

The U.S. General Services Administration (GSA) issued an official Notice to Proceed (NTP) for the Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS) Unrestricted contract. This means the HCaTS Unrestricted contract is “open for business” and federal agencies government-wide can begin using the innovative solution to address their customized training and development, human capital strategy and organizational performance improvement service needs. The HCaTS Small Business (SB) contract remains under a stay of performance at this time.

The HCaTS solution, awarded in partnership with the Office of Personnel Management’s (OPM) Training and Management Assistance Program (TMA) is part of the strategic, government-wide movement to “buy-as-one” through category management and an important first step in optimizing spending in the human capital category. HCaTS cuts costs and increases efficiency by providing federal agencies access to proven and high quality human capital and training contractors.

The HCaTS Unrestricted contract includes significant small business subcontracting goals, while unique small business opportunities are emphasized through a separate HCaTS Small Business contract. 77 contracts were awarded to qualified vendors under the HCaTS Unrestricted vehicle, providing agencies government-wide with easy access to a reliable, flexible, and efficient means of improving human capital management in accordance with the Human Capital Assessment and Accountability Framework (HCAAF) and OPM governing doctrines. GSA will be responsible for HCaTS contract administration, while OPM will be responsible for HCaTS program management.
