GSA HACS SIN Requirements
As with all IT Large Category Services SINs, to add the HACS SIN to your GSA MAS Contract, you are required to submit a technical proposal with two relevant project experiences.
Beyond the standard requirements, the GSA HACS SIN is one of just a few SINs that require companies to pass a special evaluation. To be awarded the HACS SIN, a company must pass an oral technical evaluation conducted by a Technical Evaluation Board (TEB). The evaluation involves responding to specific scenarios and general questions that are designed to assess your expertise.
Companies pursuing the GSA HACS SIN may also be subject to additional laws and standards depending on the specific task order. These may include certain National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) guidelines.
