This bill requires each executive agency to take into account a contractor's training programs in evaluating offers for any contract in an amount greater than $25 million. Contracting officers must give consideration to a contractor that provides comprehensive training and education programs to develop its workforce, consistent with the agency's needs. In assessing past performance, contracting officers must consider the manner in which an incumbent contractor is educating, investing, and retaining the contractor's workforce.

Each agency shall develop workforce development investment incentives for contractors.
