Combined Expertise Will Shape New Strategically Sourced Contract Vehicle

Washington, DC - Today, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the General Services Administration (GSA) announced a new partnership to jointly manage the solicitation and award of a new strategically sourced, multiple award contract vehicle to support OPM’s Training and Management Assistance (TMA) program, which provides customized human capital and training services to all agencies.  In collaboration with the Strategic Sourcing Leadership Council, this new partnership will support the largest government-wide strategically sourced solution for human capital and training services and will allow OPM to continue to offer high quality products while taking advantage of GSA’s ability to provide government-wide cost savings and efficiencies through its federal strategic sourcing expertise.  It also leverages the GSA’s acquisition expertise in combination with OPM’s skills in human capital and training programs, to form a more powerful government solutions team.

“This partnership is a great example of the results that collaboration can bring to government,” said OPM Director Katherine Archuleta. “We will continue to bring excellent services to the agencies while also strategically ensuring that the process is as cost-effective and efficient as possible. OPM will continue to provide excellent service and help agencies find the human capital and training solutions they need.

At a time when every agency is facing tightening budgets while also dealing with increasing demands for government services, a skilled, trained workforce is more important than ever before,” said GSA Administrator Dan Tangherlini. “This program will help the entire government get the HR support and training services they need and save valuable taxpayer dollars.”

“Improving the effectiveness and efficiency of government is a key component of the President’s Management Agenda and a core principle of our strategic sourcing initiative,” said OMB Deputy Director for Management Beth Cobert. “Today’s announcement of the GSA and OPM partnership to improve how we buy human resources services and training is great news for the taxpayer.  By leveraging the core competencies of these agencies, we will reduce redundancy, increase administrative efficiencies, and realize cost savings.”

OPM ensures that the quality of human capital services and training products to agencies is high and aligned with the Federal Human Capital Assessment and Accountability Framework. While the new procurement is being finalized, OPM will continue to provide human capital and training solutions to agencies through its existing TMA contract. OPM and GSA plan to have the new contract solution in place in FY 2015.
