GSA, OPM Reduce Contract Access Fee for Human Capital & Training Solutions Program

The General Services Administration and the Office of Personnel Management have reduced the contract access fee of the Human Capital and Training Solutions initiative by at least 60 percent.

GSA Administrator Emily Murphy said in a statement published Wednesday the move to lower CAF from 2 percent to 0.75 percent aims to make the HCaTS program more competitive and deliver additional value to client agencies through the administration’s government reform efforts.

Federal agencies can acquire customized human capital strategy support, organizational performance improvement and training and development services through the HCaTS program.

HCaTS is part of GSA’s category management initiative and has been considered a “best-in-class” platform since fiscal 2017.

“The HCaTS contracts were envisioned to support agencies in meeting complex people management challenges, including agency restructuring and reshaping,” said OPM Director Jeff Pon.

Pon added that the reduced CAF aims to eliminate a cost barrier for the HCaTS contracts that work to help agencies gain access to GSA’s acquisition expertise, OPM’s human capital experience and industry partners.
