The General Services Administration is looking for industry input on its plan to craft a contract to provide human resource training and other HR solutions.
GSA and the Office of Personnel Management PM signed a memorandum of understanding on April 28 to partner on a joint strategic sourcing contract to offer agencies looking to train HR professionals. While the exact size and type of contract have not been finalized, the agencies agreed to transition from OPM’s current Training and Management Assistance contract by the second quarter of fiscal 2015. OPM canceled a $2 billion solicitation for a replacement contract on Feb. 7, more than a year into the process.

Now GSA is asking for industry input on how to incorporate strategic sourcing principles into a new contract and whether the agency should craft separate contracts for small and large businesses or combine both into one contract.
“The information provided will be utilized for preliminary planning purposes by the Government to facilitate the decision making process and will not be disclosed outside of Government,” Contracting Officer Bjorn Miller wrote in the post.
GSA also wants to know if contractors would prefer to come up with the labor categories to be included in the contract or should GSA.
The agency asked 18 questions in all, ranging from possible requirements to whether contractors should report greenhouse gas emissions or renewable energy power purchases.
