Wanted: GoLearn thoughts

Officials from the Office of Personnel Management are seeking ideas from contractors and academic institutions to develop a task order for online training, products and services for the Government Online Learning Center.

Known as GoLearn, the program provides Web-based human capital performance tools such as academic, technical and organizational courses for federal workers, and is part of the growing e-learning initiative throughout the federal government.

The indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity contracts would be for services such as learning management systems, content management, Web collaboration software, licensing, credentials and online academic degrees. The life of the contracts would be for one base year and four one-year options, according to an OPM announcement released on Jan. 21.

The purpose of the task orders is to obtain online training services, Web-based Human Capital Performance tools, educational instruction, and the supporting technology and services needed to enable government employees to achieve training and educational goals.

The request for proposals will be available electronically in 45 days, and small businesses whose annual revenues are less than $21 million, as well as colleges, universities and professional schools are encouraged to submit a proposal.
