A contract to continue work on training courseware has been granted to CSC by the General services Administration’s Federal Systems Integration and Management Center (FEDSIM). The Blanked Purchase Agreement (BPA), which is for one-year with four one-year options, replaces a previous Army National Guard award for training services from 2003.
The contract calls for CSC to implement distributed learning educational products which will allow for virtual learning and will eliminate the need for students, instructors, and content to be in the same location. The company will also create new courses, update existing content, and convert traditional courses into a virtual format.
The CSC will carry out these services at both the National Guard Professional Education Center at Camp Robinson, North Little Rock, Ark. and the Distributed Learning Development Center at Camp dodge, Des Moines, Iowa.
Austin Yerks, president of CSC’s North American Public Sector Defense Group said, “CSC proudly continues its service to the Army National Guard by providing quality distributed learning training and educational products…CSC’s balanced application of live, virtual and constructive training solutions significantly enhances end-user readiness and performance in support of the Army’s mission.”
