USSOCOM Enterprise Training Solution Assessment Event
SOFWERX, in collaboration with USSOCOM Program Executive Office-Services (PEO-SV), is hosting a series of ongoing events to identify, collaborate, and find solutions to streamline the acquisition, purchasing, and scheduling of enterprise training. The purpose of this effort is to alleviate the burden on units of ordering and purchasing required training multiple times throughout the year. The next event is scheduled for 30 January – 01 February 2024.
In February of this year, the USSOCOM Commanding General initiated a series of round tables to discover areas of burden being experienced by the USSOCOM Enterprise. Acquiring, purchasing, and scheduling training is one of the top issues. A Government Purchase Card (GPC) can be used for any training requirement under $25K, but if the training occurs multiple times per year, and you make several purchases, it is flagged as a split purchase. If the training is over $25K, you can execute a Purchase Order, which requires multiple quotes before a contract can be let for the requirement. A Request for Proposal (RFP) for an open bid and source selection is also required before the contract can be awarded. This process traditionally takes between six to twelve months.
The goal of this series of events is to identify capabilities for a tool that will enable government stakeholders to sort through a menu of available training options from available companies. The tool should allow customers to rate companies’ past performance and allow units to purchase and schedule training without resoliciting and/or renegotiating a contract or purchase order. Ideally, the tool will also provide firewalls to protect company proprietary data and ITAR information and reside on the unclassified network.
