GSA’s Office of Professional Services and Human Capital Categories is hosting several webinars for the federal acquisition workforce and industry. Register today to learn more about the contract solutions, resources and digital tools that can help you with your professional services and human capital acquisitions.


HCaTS DPA Training

April 8, 2021 and

April 29, 2021

1:00 p.m. -  2:00 p.m. ET (10:00 - 11:00 a.m. PT)

Registration Link

HCaTS consists of two indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) government-wide contract vehicles: HCaTS and HCaTS SB. These vehicles provide reliable, flexible, fast and efficient ways to obtain the best value customized solutions for human capital management and training requirements.

 Before issuing task orders under HCaTS, Federal Contracting Officers (COs) must complete training and receive a Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA). This training covers: basic contract information, scope, ordering process, roles and responsibilities, and resources for HCaTS.


OASIS DPA Training

April 8, 2021

1:00 p.m. -  2:00 p.m. ET (10:00 - 11:00 a.m. PT)

Registration Link

Remember, you can sign up for OASIS DPA training at any time through DAU’s Virtual Campus by searching FAC 152.

 Delegation of Procurement (DPA) training gives Contracting Officers access to the OASIS Unrestricted and OASIS Small Business contract vehicles and teaches best practices for task order issuance. A single DPA will be issued for both OASIS and OASIS SB. Warranted contracting officers (a contracting officer appointed pursuant to FAR 1.603) can request a DPA, which allows direct access to our Governmentwide Acquisition Contracts (GWACs). The DPA clearly delineates the roles and responsibilities between the GSA contracting officer and the ordering contracting officer, and complies with the Office of Management and Budget's (OMB) executive agent designation to GSA.

 DPA requestors must have a .gov or .mil email address. Requestors who do not have a .gov or .mil email address must submit a copy of their warrant as a federal contracting officer to oasisdpa@gsa.gov for consideration.

Office Hours: Selecting the Right Labor Categories on Schedules
April 13, 2021

11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. ET (8:00 - 9:00 a.m. PT)

Registration link

This month learn how GSA professional services labor categories are established at the Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) contract level and how to evaluate them for task orders. During this session you will learn about:

  • How to ensure that your RFQ establishes clear expectations for the services that need to be performed and that the contractor's proposed labor category descriptions match what they have awarded under their MAS contract
  •  Minimum education and experience requirements and how to ensure that the proposed labor categories meet these requirements 
  • GSA pricing methodology and what it means to an ordering activity 
  • How price escalation works under MAS contracts and orders

Why is this topic important? GSA has negotiated fair and reasonable ceiling prices and established labor categories with clear minimum education and experience requirements and it is imperative that agencies only award services and labor categories that are awarded under the Schedule contract. Buyers must also understand how price escalations work to ensure the GSA ceiling price is never exceeded.  Earn 1 CLP!

About Office Hours:

Our monthly Office Hours webinars are designed to answer your questions about professional-services acquisitions and to help you find the right solution for complex requirements. Each Office Hours webinar is an open-forum session connecting federal Contracting Officers and other federal contracting professionals with GSA experts.
