HCaTS Contracts



HCaTS Overview

The Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS) Contracts are new strategically sourced, indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) government-wide contracts that provide complex, customized human capital and training services to all federal agencies.

The HCaTS Contracts provide federal agencies with a reliable, flexible, fast, and efficient way to obtain best value solutions for complex human capital and training services. The contracts give federal agencies more human capital and training options than ever before—and many new small businesses the chance to work alongside them.

The dynamic HCaTS contracts are the first major solution for the human capital and training category and are supported by the Category Management Leadership Council chaired by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). HCaTS is composed of three contract vehicles:

  • HCaTS – private enterprises of any size
  • HCaTS SB – small business providers
  • HCaTS 8(a) – socially and economically disadvantaged small businesses

HCaTS Commercial Partners

The HCaTS providers were selected through a rigorous, open competition in compliance with Federal Acquisition Regulations. Successful firms have demonstrated their expertise and current experience in delivering high-quality, customized training, human capital, and organizational performance improvement solutions.

HCaTS Solutions

Our HCIS Program consultants can align your human capital plan with your agency’s requirements—and provide the metrics to measure progress against your goals and objectives.

Greater flexibility in contracting approaches

You have options with HCaTS. Your task orders can be firm-fixed-price, cost reimbursement, labor hours, time and materials—or a combination of these.

HCaTS also features two alternative choices for customers:

  • Full-service assisted acquisition services for HCaTS Contracts from startup—including help refining your requirements and cost estimates; selecting competitive contractors; awarding task orders; reviewing projects periodically; and invoicing providers—through contract close out.
  • Access contracts directly through your own contracting office. Duly warranted Ordering Contracting Officers (OCO) can obtain Delegated Procurement Authority (DPA) after completing required training. GSA manages this process and OPM can consult with you on optimizing the statement of requirements, which ultimately serves as the catalyst for provider proposals.
