Breaking Down PACTSII

Government Business Development | GWAC Series | 3 Min Read


This is the eighth installment of our ten-part Government Wide Acquisition Contract (GWAC) series written by Winvale’s Government Analysis team of experts. Every other week, we take a look at a different GWAC to keep you up to speed on changes, tips and any pertinent information. Today, we will cover everything you need to know about the Program Management, Administrative, Clerical and Technical Services ii (PACTS II) GWAC.

What is PACTS II?

The Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) PACTS II is a Department-wide service contract for acquiring non-IT service solutions. PACTS II strives to offer 100% set-asides for Service-Disabled Veteran Owned Small Businesses (SDVOSB).

The current DHS PACTS contract ran from FY 2009 - FY 2015.  DHS PACTS will provide a wide range of services for DHS through four comprehensive functional categories. These categories are in the graphic below and are non-IT related.

  • resource management

The current DHS PACTS contract has generated over $494,143,589 since 2012, across five NAICS codes. 69% of the total spend has been generated on NAICS Code 561110 - Office Administrative Services. A complete analysis of the five NAICS code can be seen below in the chart.
