GSA Awards Human Capital and Training Solutions Multiple-Award Contracts
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, the General Services Administration (GSA), in partnership with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), awarded the new Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS) contract to 109 vendors. HCaTS will provide tailored training and development, human capital strategy, and organizational performance improvement services to all federal agencies.
The HCaTS contracts are part of a strategic, government-wide movement to “buy-as-one” through Category Management and are an important first step in optimizing spending in the human capital category.
GSA will be responsible for contract administration, while OPM will be responsible for HCaTS program management. OPM will continue to offer high quality human capital program solutions while leveraging GSA’s contracting expertise. HCaTS cuts costs and increases efficiency by maximizing the return on investment in human capital management and training services.
From GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth:
“Partnering with OPM to award this strategically sourced initiative has been an excellent demonstration of interagency collaboration. Together, we’re providing a solid acquisition solution using FAS’s acquisition expertise, married with OPM’s HR and training expertise, to deliver federal workers training and support they need while making sure agencies can save time and money,” said GSA Administrator Denise Turner Roth. “The HCaTs solution is a stellar example of federal agencies working together to provide a best-in-class, category-specific solution that helps deliver mission-critical services and saves valuable agency resources as well as taxpayer dollars.”
From Acting OPM Director Beth Cobert:
“The HCaTS contracts allow Federal agencies to not only take a highly efficient and innovative approach to their human capital and training requirements, but also to lean on OPM’s expertise in human capital and category management,” said Beth Cobert, Acting Director of OPM. “This contract vehicle makes it easier for agencies to procure the high-quality human capital support they need to meet their mission requirements efficiently and
