May 17, 2016 – Columbia, MD – A P Ventures (APV) has been awarded the Human Capital and Training Solutions Small Business (HCaTS SB) government-wide Multiple Award, Indefinite Delivery, Indefinite Quantity (MA-IDIQ) task order contract vehicle, as announced today by the General Services Administration (GSA). The HCaTS SB IDIQ is the result of a partnership between the US Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and GSA to provide next-generation training and development, human capital, and organizational performance improvement services to federal agencies.
The maximum dollar amount for HCaTS SB is $3.45 billion for Pool 1 and $2.3 billion for Pool 2. Thus the combined ceiling value for HCaTS SB is $5.75 billion, with an ordering period of a base of five year, plus a five-year option, and a six-month option for a total of 10.5 years.
APV was one of only seven small businesses to receive awards in both the HCaTS SB Pool 1, for Professional and Management Development Training, and Pool 2, for Human Resource Consulting Services. APV was awarded the IDIQ after a rigorous proposal effort and vetting process of its demonstrated expertise in a broad spectrum of customized solutions.
Founded in 2007, APV has been known for its custom IT solutions for Maryland State agencies, such as the Maryland State Department of Education and the Maryland Department of Information Technology. With its 8(a) SBA certification, APV began diversifying into the federal sector and this latest award marks the company’s sixth federal contract in just over 12 months.
“Since this contract is aimed at customized solutions for needs that off-the-shelf products can’t adequately meet, it’s a perfect fit for us,” stated Nandita Gududuri, founding partner and president of APV. “It’s truly an exciting time for the company and we are looking forward to providing vital solutions across federal agencies through this new vehicle.”
