HCaTs Information

    Project Overview

    The Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS) Program is the result of a partnership between the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the General Services Administration (GSA). HCaTS is comprised of three indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) government-wide 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. HCaTS contracts provide solutions to all federal agencies through the effort of bona-fide executive, administrative, and professional employees as defined in Part 541 of Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). HCaTS is a Government-wide, Multiple Award, Indefinite-Delivery, Indefinite-Quantity (MA-IDIQ) task order contract vehicle for customized training and development, human capital strategy, and customized organizational performance improvement services.

    HCaT Contract Benefits

    HCaTS has been designated as a Best-in-Class (BIC) solution for Human Capital and Training Solutions since October 2016. BIC contracts are recognized as being “good-for-government” purchasing solutions and, per OMB Memo M-17-22 [PDF], agencies should consider leveraging providers on best-in-class contracts as part of the category management effort. Additionally, per OMB Memo M-19-13 [PDF] and the President’s Management Agenda, agencies are directed to leverage existing contracts for common goods and services. Generally speaking, using BIC solutions saves time and money. Government buyers can confidently use and recommend BIC solutions knowing that they have undergone thorough vetting processes.
