OPM plans E-Learning procurement

OPM plans E-Learning procurement

The Office of Personnel Management will give agencies more choice when it comes to online learning. The agency by December will award new E-Learning contracts for the services on the www.golearn.gov site.

The multiyear contracts will be indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity agreements, said Norm Enger, OPM’s e-government director. OPM will ask vendors to bid on one or more of four contract areas, which likely will include learning management systems, course development and course content.

Enger and other OPM officials today testified about the agency’s five Quicksilver projects at a hearing of the House Government Reform Subcommittee on Technology, Information Policy, Intergovernmental Relations and the Census.

OPM also is deciding whether to hire a new project manager for the E-Clearance initiative. John Crandell, the former project manager, moved to the IRS earlier this month. Mark White has taken over as project manager on an interim basis, Enger said. OPM’s White is leading an OMB-sponsored effort to find areas where agencies can collaborate on human resources.

“The question we are trying to answer is whether we need a new project manager or whether we should just move it” to White’s area, Enger said.
