STAMFORD, CT, April 25, 2023
The Game Agency, the gamification division of ELB Learning, is proud to announce its exclusive partnership with Enterprise Knowledge (“EK”) in support of the USA Learning federal government educational program. “We’re proud to have been selected as the game-based learning experts on the elite team of companies hand-picked by Enterprise Knowledge and delighted when the EK team was chosen to be one of only seven prime contractors on this ground-breaking initiative. We simply can’t wait to begin delivering our unique blend of engaging educational experiences to government employees,” shared Richard J. Lowenthal, Chief Operating Officer of The Game Agency.
In December, 2022, EK was awarded a Prime Contract on the OPM USALearning® (USAL) Training and Education Support Products and Services IDIQ contract. This is a small business set-aside with a ceiling of $1.76B which provides all U.S. Government – Federal agencies, state, and local municipalities with flexible access to customized Formal and Informal Learning Instructional System Design and Support Services, Training Simulation and Virtual Reality Application Solutions, and Organizational Training and Planning from EK’s team of Advanced Learning industry partners.
“We are thrilled to offer federal customers the flexibility, ease-of-use, and innovative training and educational support products and services available from EK’s USALearning team,” said EK’s CEO, Zach Wahl. “Our Enterprise Learning capabilities combine depth in learning experience design and advanced learning technologies with knowledge management, artificial intelligence, and content strategy to deliver world-class capabilities.”
The contract allows government agencies to streamline their acquisition processes and obtain cutting-edge training and education solutions to build customized and continuous Learning Experience Solutions. The scope includes all aspects of analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation for all training and education support services.
USAL Training and Education Support Products and Service IDIQ contract was awarded with an initial five-year base ordering period through December 14, 2027, followed by a five-year optional ordering period which will run until December 14, 2032. As such, the contract provides opportunities for long-term solutions for contracting officers, providing flexibility to accommodate extended periods of performance.
As the world’s largest dedicated Knowledge Management (KM) consultancy, EK is poised to deliver USAL’s goals for the IDIQ and will leverage the company’s global expertise in Enterprise Learning Strategy, Learning Ecosystem Design, and Learning Experience Solutions to achieve agency learning goals.
