How to Use HCaTS

There are two ways to access Paltech’s services under HCaTS:
  • Delegated Procurement Authority: After a Contracting Officer attends mandatory Delegation of Procurement Authority (DPA) training, GSA will issue a DPA to the customer agency Ordering Contracting Officer (OCO) who then can award a task order through the contracts. The DPA establishes the OCO’s roles and responsibilities. OPM is available to provide complementary scope reviews for customer agencies.
  • Assisted Acquisition Services: OPM (supported by GSA’s AAS contracting expertise) performs the acquisition on behalf of the customer agency and provides pre- and post-award support, as negotiated with the customer. An inter-agency agreement is required.
