Reston, Va. -- VCampus Corporation, a provider of end-to-end, web-based e-Learning solutions, has received notification from the General Services Administration (GSA) that the GSA has exercised its option to extend the VCampus Federal Supply Schedule Contract through June 27, 2009.
VCampus currently offers courses on the GSA Schedule covering topics such as Accounting, Finance, Office Skills, Certification, Information Technology and Human Resources. VCampus plans to add courses from its Select Partner Program addressing high demand subjects such as Information Security, Project Management and Financial Management and Accountability. As a result of legislation passed last summer, state governments can now also take advantage of the GSA Schedule to make purchases of online training directly from the VCampus GSA Schedule.
Separately, VCampus has also announced that it has been awarded a contract renewal with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to support online training initiatives throughout the entire Department. The initial value of the renewal contract is approximately $1.2 million in the first year.
"To implement our e-Learning portal, the VA partnered with VCampus to design, deploy, and host VA Learning Online (VALO), which makes courses readily available to nearly a quarter of a million VA employees worldwide,” says Seldon Todd, Senior e-Learning Specialist, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. "Plus, VCampus has gone the extra mile to ensure that the e-Learning platform and courses are in compliance with Section 508 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act, as well as with AICC and SCORM guidelines."
The Social Security Administration, Department of Homeland Security and GSA are among the agencies that have used the VCampus GSA Schedule to purchase online training to support their human capital management initiatives. VCampus e-Learning solutions also enable agencies to comply with the Clinger-Cohen Act requiring Chief Information Officers to develop and implement strategies for training and professional development of agency personnel in information technology management.
