The task order has a total potential value of $10.8 million over five years if all options are exercised.
Under the award, General Dynamics will provide a wide range of information technology, managerial, production and general administrative services to support the Naval Postgraduate School’s Distributed Learning Initiative.

In addition, the company will provide guidance and training on current educational technologies, assist in the design and production of instructional materials, provide Instructional Systems Design (ISD) supervision and project management, and assist NPS personnel in the design and execution of faculty development events that promote the benefits of distributed learning and best practices.
“The Naval Postgraduate School’s Distributed Learning Initiative ensures that members of the U.S. armed forces, civilian employees and officers from other countries have access to vital educational resources regardless of their deployment,” said Ken Slaght, vice president and general manager of Navy/Air Force Systems Maritime Systems for General Dynamics Information Technology. “General Dynamics is pleased to continue our support of distributed learning at the Naval Postgraduate School.”
The Office of Continuous Learning (OCL) is chartered to develop, coordinate and deliver focused, relevant, quality learning opportunities to those Naval and defense customers who are not able to attend NPS on a full-time residential basis. Methods to deliver graduate level courses include: visiting NPS faculty (MET), video tele-education (VTE) systems, streaming video and web-based education.
