Human Capital and Training Solutions Small Business Pool One (HCaTS SB)


GSA’s Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS) is a government-wide IDIQ contract for the next generation of training, human capital, and organizational improvement as well as related technology solutions.

The Human Capital and Training Solution (HCaTS) contract is the result of a partnership between The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the General Services Administration (GSA). The initiative creates the joint management of a new strategically-sourced, indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) government-wide contract to support OPM’s Training and Management Assistance (TMA) program and provides customized human capital management and training services to all agencies. The HCaTS contracts provide federal agencies with a reliable, flexible, fast and efficient way to obtain best value solutions for their complex human capital and training service requirements.
