The General Services Administration can still name more companies to its massive human capital and training services vehicle but cannot proceed yet on performance for one block of awards.
In an award notice Tuesday, GSA said it awarded the SB-SBI joint venture a seat on Pool 1 of the on-ramp for the $5.75 billion vehicle known as HCaTS and RB Management Consultants was added to Pool 2.
GSA has so far named 43 awards across both pools to join the group of 46 small businesses that already hold prime positions on HCaTS, which was awarded in 2016 to 72 companies in total.
The waiting game for GSA zeroes in on the Pool 2 awards, which are the subject of a lawsuit by INALAB Consulting at the U.S. Court of Federal Claims.
INALAB’s protest over its exclusion from an award was denied at the Government Accountability Office in October, then the company went to court one month later. All details regarding the case are still sealed, but the docket indicates oral arguments are set for Feb. 18 via videoconference.
