Built by GSA, the Acquisition Gateway helps federal buyers from all agencies to act as one acquisition community. Inside the Acquisition Gateway, you can:

  • Find government-wide solution comparisons
  • Connect with other acquisition professionals
  • Explore product and service category hallways that feature category-curated articles, templates, market-research tools, prices-paid data, and more to succeed at each step of the acquisition life-cycle

Join this demo to take a tour of the latest front-and-center resources, such as the dynamic Solutions Finder and the Project Center that allows you to personalize your work-space; get a real-world example of how the tools and resources in a hallway help during each step of the acquisition life cycle; and learn how you can contribute your expertise to help us continue to build what you see on the Acquisition Gateway

The HCaTS contracts provide federal agencies with a reliable, flexible, fast and efficient way to obtain best value solutions for their complex human capital and training service requirements. HCaTS Unrestricted and HCaTS Small Business offer the flexibility to use all contract types and provide pricing at the task order level (i.e., Fixed-Price (all types), Cost-Reimbursement (all types), Time-and-Materials, and Labor-Hour). There are two ways to access HCaTS:

  • Direct Acquisition: GSA issues a Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA) to the customer agency Ordering Contracting Officer (OCO) who performs the acquisition; or
  • Assisted Acquisition: OPM performs the acquisition on behalf of the customer agency and provides post-award support, as negotiated with the customer. An Inter-Agency Agreement is required.


This session will provide the required DPA training. For information on HCaTS see GSA.gov/hcats
