TSA Issues RFI on AI-Based Human Capital Management Platforms

The Department of Homeland Security’s Transportation Security Administration has asked vendors for information on platforms that use automation, cloud-based software and artificial intelligence and could help TSA hire, retain and manage employees, Bloomberg Government reported Wednesday.

A request for information posted Monday says TSA will use the responses to inform its acquisition strategy to advance the modernization of its human capital management platforms for its 67K personnel.

The proposed procurement’s scope includes hiring, recruitment, applicant assessment, onboarding, payroll, employee benefits, performance management, separation, background checks and retirement planning.

The agency plans to consolidate three professional services and information technology contracts that have obligated $388M in funds to support human resources functions. Accenture, Deloitte and PSI Services are the incumbents on those contracts.

Responses to the RFI are due June 29.
