By HR Solutions Public Affairs

HR Solutions Fort Belvoir, Va., Sept. 5, 2018 – The Army’s Program Executive Office Enterprise Information Systems’ (PEO EIS) HR Solutions program office, in conjunction with Army Contracting Command –New Jersey, is pleased to announce its Recruitment-Management & Administrative Support (R-MAS) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) Multiple Award Task Order Contracts (MATOCs). Contracts were awarded to 12 small businesses and consist of a five-year base and five one-year optional ordering periods with a $1.5 billion contract ceiling. HR Solutions’ R-MAS contracts can support enterprise-level Department of Defense human resource services requirements through 2028.

Director of HR Solutions, Brent A. Thomas, offered his thoughts, “Awarding the R-MAS IDIQ contracts is the first step in continuing HR Solutions’ reputation as the Army’s premier source for timely, cost effective and high quality human resource services for the foreseeable future. We anticipate awarding our Personnel Lifecycle Support IDIQ contracts later this year which will expand our capabilities and complete our fifth generation IDIQs.”

Thomas was also quick to recognize the efforts of others, “The amount of time, effort, coordination and expertise that went into awarding these contracts simply cannot be understated.

I’d like to thank all of the people who were involved with this acquisition for their invaluable advice and assistance but I would be remiss if I didn’t specifically recognize my deputy, Ms. Joan Fries, and our procurement contracting officer, Mr. Tony Mauriello of Army Contracting Command – New Jersey. They did most of the heavy-lifting on this acquisition and deserve more credit than I will ever be able to heap upon them. I’m excited for the future of the HR Solutions program office.”

A government team consisting of acquisition, contracting and requirements subject matter experts formed the Source Selection Evaluation Board and evaluated criteria which included each contractor’s corporate experience, past performance, staffing and management approach, and price at the IDIQ level as well as each contractor’s technical solution and staffing approach on three sample task order requirements. This evaluation resulted in a pool of thoroughly vetted small-business contractors who substantially demonstrated their capability of providing high quality services for the Army and Department of Defense across the recruitment and management/administrative spectrum.

HR Solutions’ acquisition processes, cost effectiveness and proven contract management and administration led to the program being designated as the Army’s preferred strategic source for human resource knowledge based services by the Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Army Procurement in May 2015. On average, HR Solutions can award a task order supporting human resource services requirements within 120 days. Customers who have transitioned to HR Solutions to support their requirement have realized, on average, a greater than 25 percent reduction in contract cost for the same service and a reduction in manpower requirements to properly manage and administer the contract with the assistance of HR Solutions.

The HR Solutions program office provides its customers with dedicated professional human resource acquisition services to include requirements development, pre-award documentation and post-award contract administration.
