Human Capital and Training Solutions

The Human Capital and Training Solutions (HCaTS) Program is comprised of two strategically sourced, indefinite-delivery indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) governmentwide contract vehicles. These vehicles provide reliable, flexible, fast and efficient ways to obtain best value customized solutions for human capital management and training requirements:

  • HCaTS (full and open) (HCaTS Unrestricted)
  • HCaTS Small Business (small business set-aside) (HCaTS SB). 

The HCaTS Program Contracts provide human capital and training solutions through the effort of bona-fide executive, administrative, and professional employees as defined in Part 541 of Title 29, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR)

Each contract is composed of two pools that are solely defined by the NAICS Codes that comprise them. The scope of all HCaTS Program Contracts are identical and defined by three (3) Key Service Areas:

  1. Customized Training and Development Services
  2. Customized Human Capital Strategy Services
  3. Customized Organizational Performance Improvement

HCaTS Program is the result of a partnership between the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the General Services Administration (GSA). Through this partnership, GSA is principally responsible for contract administration, while OPM is responsible for policy oversight and customer services.

Why Use HCaTS? 

The HCaTS Program is flexible, easy-to-use, and allows agencies to: 

  • Do longer-term planning for complex program requirements due to the possible 16 year task order period of performance and program ceiling of $11.5 Billion; 
  • Access through self-service (via DPA) or Assisted Acquisition Services (via OPM);
  • Design comprehensive customized solutions to complex requirements, rather than contracting separately for each requirement type; 
  • Use any contract type or any hybrid mixtures of contract type; 
  • Task order work within CONUS and outside CONUS;     
  • Meet or exceed small business goals in all categories;
  • Include ancillary services and other direct costs (ODCs) at the task order level as needed; and 
  • Collect transactional and analytics data for spend analysis and market research.
