The US Army Contracting Agency, Contracting Center of Excellence (CCE) at the Pentagon, on behalf of the Office of the Inspector General intends to contractually procure a contractor that shall provide recruiting and hiring services while providing operational recruitment and staffing support to the Human Capital Advisory Services Directorate (HCASD) and provide tactical planning and implementation to support short-term and long-term recruitment and retention strategies as identified in Performance Work Statement (PWS).

Each of the following key areas or tasks must be addressed. 1.) Redesign OIGs vacancy announcement template to accomplish the following: (1) market OIG as an employer of choice, (2) convey clear and concise duty statements and qualifications criteria that are easily understood by the general public, (3) describe evaluation process and required documentation in a way that increases the probability that applicants will submit all required documentation. 2.) Assist OIG Human Resource Specialists in staffing a variety of positions by performing job evaluations (evaluating the proper band placement in accordance with NSPS criteria), developing vacancy announcements, verifying qualifications and eligibility, adjudicating veterans preference, clearing priority placement lists, setting pay and making job offers. 3.) Analyze labor market conditions and identify potential sourcing strategies to fill a wide range of OIG positions. 4.) Analyze Civilian Labor Force (CLF) data and determine availability of potential candidates by gender, and race and national origin (RNO) to support strategic workforce planning efforts and to support the Federal Equal Opportunity Recruitment Plan (FEORP) and Hispanic Hiring Program. These are federally mandated programs. 5.) Develop potential sourcing strategies and implementation strategies to meet requirements under the federally mandated Disabled Veterans Affirmative Action Program (DVAAP). 6.) Develop potential sourcing and implementation strategies to support hiring of the disabled. 7.) Support workforce planning efforts by developing statistical templates to support the analysis of retention, competency gaps, time-to-hire and diversity. 8.) Write recruitment advertisements for journals and publications. 9.) Accompany OIG staff to job fairs and recruiting events, and market OIG as an employer of choice. 10.) Provide tactical support to HCAS staff in the development of recruitment materials including brochures and displays under a Branding approach. If at least two responsible small business concerns are determined by the Government to be capable of performing this requirement based on an evaluation of the capability packages submitted by 10:00 am EST, 06 June 2008, the requirement will be solicited as a 100% set-aside for small business concerns.
