General Dynamics Corp. will expand access to distributed learning resources and increase the number of course offerings under a new contract from the Army National Guard that could be worth as much as $26.1 million over five years.
General Dynamics Information Technology, a business unit of General Dynamics, was awarded the contract by the General Services Administration's Assisted Acquisitions Service to support the Army National Guard's distributed learning IT program.
The company will provide IT technical support and professional services for the Army Training Division's Distributed Learning Branch. The support services include strategic planning, assessment and management solutions to expand distributed learning training opportunities for Army National Guard soldiers and units throughout the 54 states and territories and deployed internationally.
General Dynamics will work with the Army National Guard to synchronize distributed learning with other Army National Guard training methods.
The Distributed Learning Program gives soldiers access to professional development and training anywhere there is a connection to the Internet.
Support services for the project include courseware quality assurance evaluations and IT infrastructure support. General Dynamics will also provide training database services to support the Army National Guard Learning Management System, implementation of the Army Digital Training Management System and participation in the Army Training Requirements and Resources System.
General Dynamics, of Falls Church, Va., ranks No. 6
on Washington Technology's 2008 Top 100 list
of the largest federal government prime contractors.
