OPM awards contract to develop an e-learning site

The Office of Personnel Management last month moved closer to unveiling its new e-learning Web site. It awarded a task order to Geolearning Inc. of West Des Moines, Iowa, to redesign the National Learning Center’s site and provide courses.

Norm Enger, OPM’s e-government director, has said he wants the new site up by the end of July [see www.gcn.com/21_13/news/18836-1.html].

The project is a part of the Office of Management and Budget’s 24 e-government initiatives and is one of five projects OPM is managing. OPM will rename the site www.golearn.gov.

Along with Geolearning, OPM hired Karta Technologies Inc. of San Antonio, NetG of Naperville, Ill., and Skillsoft Corp. of Nashua, N.H., to provide online courses for the site, an OPM spokesman said.
