Reminder to all schedule 738 X contract holder and potential schedule holders that the HR schedule will implement new SINS this month.  We wrote regarding GSA’s announcement to modernize GSA Schedule 738 X on a previous post.

Reflecting OPM/OMB government-wide Resources Category Management Strategy, GSA is reorganizing the SIN classification of 595-21 human resources services into 11 categories. GSA’s goal is to increase business by targeting specializations and reduce redundancies government-wide by encouraging broader use of the schedule potentially increasing government business for GSA Schedule vendors.

If you have been to eLibrary recently, you will see that these subcategories are currently listed under SIN 595-21.

New SINS for Schedule 738X include:

595-21   AGENCY HUMAN CAPITAL STRATEGY, POLICY, and OPERATIONAL PLANNING—

What 738X Schedule Holders Can Expect:

All schedule holders will receive a form from your GSA Procurement Contracting Officer. If you do not receive the form, contact your PCO immediately and identify which new SINS you currently support.

Your PCO will then unilaterally modify the schedule to reflect relevant SIN categorizations.  Once a modification is awarded, a new GSA pricelist will need to be developed and submitted to eLibrary/GSAAdvantage.

If you miss the opportunity to have your PCO unilaterally update your schedule, you will be required to add new SIN through the traditional modification process.

If 595-21 Agency Human Capital Strategy, Policy, and Operational Planning is all you do, then no action is needed.

If you have any questions regarding the proposed changes, please contact us.  Additionally, if you perform these functions and do not have a GSA Schedule, we would encourage you to contact us to discuss the possibilities of obtaining a 738X schedule.
