New GSA IT Schedule 70 hacs SIN

Explore how Blackfyre, a leading GSA Federal Schedule Consulting firm, can help your business navigate the changes and implications of the new GSA IT Schedule 70 HACS SIN consolidation.

New GSA IT Schedule 70 HACS SIN

As Blackfyre, a premier GSA Federal Schedule Consulting firm, we are dedicated to updating our clients on major alterations within GSA Schedules. One such change is the consolidation of the Highly Adaptive Cybersecurity Services (HACS) Special Item Numbers (SINs) under the GSA IT Schedule 70 Contract. This consolidation aims to simplify the procurement of vital cybersecurity services while expanding the scope of services available. Let's delve into this consolidation and its implications for contractors.

Overview of HACS SIN Consolidation

Here is a snapshot of what the consolidation involves:

  1. Single HACS SIN 132-45: The existing four HACS SINs (132-45A, 132-45B, 132-45C, and 132-45D) have been merged into a single SIN, 132-45. This amendment simplifies the contracting and acquiring processes for cybersecurity services.
  2. Inclusion of High Value Asset (HVA) Assessments: The HACS SIN's scope has been broadened with the introduction of the HVA Assessments subcategory, providing agencies with a more wide-ranging assortment of cybersecurity services.

Contractor Implications

The consolidation has several implications for contractors, particularly those currently holding one or more of the existing HACS SINs. Here's what you need to know:

  1. Migration of Existing HACS SIN Holders: Contractors will be migrated to the new consolidated SIN and corresponding subcategories. This change is initiated through a modification process by their GSA contracting officer.
  2. Addition of HVA Subcategory: Contractors who hold all four HACS SINs can add the HVA subcategory by submitting a letter of attestation when the single SIN is released. There's no need for additional oral evaluations.
  3. Oral Evaluations for Future Additions: Contractors who wish to add the HACS SIN or specific subcategories in future must undergo oral evaluations, tailored to the relevant subcategories.
