Mark Your Calendar for these Valuable December 2021 Webinars

GSA’s Office of Professional Services and Human Capital (PSHC) Categories is hosting several webinars for the federal acquisition workforce and industry throughout the next month. 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.


OASIS DPA Training

December 1, 2021

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


HCaTS DPA Training

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

The Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS) Program consists of three indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) governmentwide contract vehicles: HCaTS Unrestricted (HCaTS U), HCaTS Small Business (HCaTS SB), and HCaTS 8(a). These vehicles provide reliable, flexible, fast and efficient ways to obtain best-value, customized solutions for human capital management and training requirements.
