SI International, Inc. has won an $8 million contract to lead a team that will provide a technology-based approach to evaluate Army Defense Ammunition Center training courses, create Web-Based training development processes and other tasks.
The Reston, Va., company will support the Defense Ammunition Center, located at McAlester, Okla., with knowledge management and electronic performance system integration.
Knowledge management comprises a number of practices that organizations use to identify, create and distribute knowledge for reuse by others or to educate their staffs. Such programs are tied to organizational objectives and target specific results, such as shared intelligence, better performance, and so forth.
The contract, which was awarded under the Millennia Lite Functional Area 2 GSA contract vehicle, has a base of one year with four one-year options.
The Defense Ammunition Center (DAC) provides ammunition training, explosives safety instruction and logistics support to Department of Defense military and civilian organizations and personnel.
SI International's team will establish the Professional Development Institutes for DAC instructors, create a DAC Community of Excellence, develop a long-term training plan, implement a Learning Management System/Learning Content Management System and deliver help desk support.
SI International has been providing knowledge management and electronic performance support services to DAC since 2004. The company ranks No. 42
on Washington Technology's 2007 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
