The General Services Administration has begun to restructure its multiple-award procurement vehicle for human resource services in an effort to address contract redundancy and simplify the acquisition process for such service offerings.
GSA said Wednesday its Human Resources and Equal Employment Opportunity Multiple Award Schedule 738 X has been renamed Human Capital Management and Administrative Support Services Schedule 738 X and will be fully implemented by the end of April.
The agency updated its MAS 738 X schedule to align with the Office of Personnel Management‘s Federal Human Capital Business Reference Model and added 10 new special item numbers that define specific HR service sub-categories.
Schedule 738 X will offer “less complex and more routine” HR requirements to complement GSA’s new Human Capital and Training Solutions acquisition vehicle, the agency added.
The MAS 738 X schedule is structured as an indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract vehicle with a five-year base period and three five-year option periods.
GSA said small businesses account for 60 percent of the contract’s vendor pool.
