The General Services Administration has drafted a set of questions directed at drawing vendor responses as part of market research into sourcing for human resources services and training in federal government.
Agency contracting officer Bjorn Miller, who posted the 16 questions on the GSA Interact website Wednesday, urged industry to take part in the whole process of the strategic sourcing initiative, starting with the acquisition planning phase.
The list of questions includes queries on how industry standards can be combined with the Office of Personnel Management’s Human Capital Assessment and Accounting Framework and the GSA’s Federal Strategic Sourcing Initiative.
GSA also seeks best practices and lessons industry has learned from past solicitations, as well as suggestions on the various aspects of the contract.
Miller said GSA will take all industry feedback into consideration when it starts to draft an acquisition strategy by late July.
