GSA Seeks Feedback for new Human Resources Contract Vehicle
The General Services Administration (GSA) is seeking to better leverage its buying power through Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiatives (FSSI). Currently, the agency is looking into replacing the Office of Personnel Management‘s (OPM) existing Training and Management Assistance (TMA) contract vehicle with a newer vehicle incorporating strategic sourcing principles and OPM’s Human Capital Assessment and Accountability Framework (HCAAF).
The goal is to replace OPM’s existing TMA Human Resources contract vehicle with a contract vehicle that focuses on industry best practices in the fields of human resource training and development and human capital management services. The FSSI is committed to making sure that all agencies are getting value for the tax dollars they consistently pay. Some future solutions include JANSEN, which is a janitorial, and sanitation solution, and Building, Maintenance, and Operations (BMO) solutions. These and other solutions are needed to leverage government spending and thereby increase savings, collect the right data at the right time to drive operational efficiencies and allow for better management decisions, and lastly, to increase the adoption of the best business practices to improve efficiency.
The new initiative could have a big impact on businesses and that is why they are reaching out to the industry for feedback. The information and feedback given to the GSA will be used for preliminary planning and execution. The objective of this feedback is to increase engagement and interaction with GSA’s Industry Partners, OMB, OPM, Army and FSSI HRST Commodity Team stakeholders as they prepare for Phase One in replacing OPM’s Training and Management Assistance (TMA) contract and move to award the FSSI HRST vehicle. The FSSI HRST team is looking for assistance from industry partners throughout the process.
