Exhibit 300: Capital Asset Plan and Business Case Summary
Part I: Summary Information And Justification

Section A: Overview

  1. Date of submission: Sep 10, 2007
  2. Agency: 018
  3. Bureau: 24
  4. Name of this Capital Asset: Combined Office Automation (EDUCATE) : Education Department Utility for Communications, Applications and Technical Environment (EDUCATE) formerly known as EDNet.
  5. Unique Project (Investment) Identifier: 018-24-02-00-01-1020-00
  6. What kind of investment will this be in FY2010? Operations and Maintenance
  7. What was the first budget year this investment was submitted to OMB? FY2001 or earlier
  8. Provide a brief summary and justification for this investment, including a brief description of how this closes in part or in whole an identified agency performance gap: The EDUCATE contract replaces the pre-existing EDNet Support Services contract which migrates from a Government-Owned Contract-Operated (GOCO) IT environment to a Contractor-Owned Contractor-Operated (COCO) Managed Services IT environment. As such, the contractor, Perot Systems, will provide the total Information Technology platform and infrastructure to support ED employees in meeting the Departments mission. The contractor will provide all personnel, materials, services, and facilities necessary to provide COCO managed services for EDs IT operations, including desktop services, helpdesk support services, data center operations and services, e-mail, records management, network services, disaster recovery services, special services, and printer services. The benefit to the government under a COCO managed services performance-based contract is that Perot Systems owns, maintains, upgrades and refreshes all of the IT infrastructure assets and provides services to achieve defined Service Level Agreements which are designed to ensure effective and efficient mission support across the Department. There are also significant cost savings to the Department under this model. Estimated savings over 3 years 08-10 are anticipated to be between $20-$25 million. The COCO Managed IT Infrastructure service model will provide the following Operational Services: 1. Security & Privacy Operations (SP); 2. Desktop Services (DS); 3. Helpdesk Support (HS); 4. Systems/Data Center Operations (SD); 5. E-Mail (EM); 6. Network Services / Telecommunications / Multimedia Services (NS) ; 7. Disaster Recovery (DR); 8. Special Services (SS); 9. Printer Services (PS) The EDUCATE scope encompasses the IT infrastructure optimization initiatives as defined by OMB's E-Gov Infrastructure Optimization Line of Business and fully supports the goals established by the President's Management Agenda (PMA) and the Federal Enterprise Architecture.

Previously ED telecommunication expenses were funded under another allocation and not reported to the PIRWG. For 2009 and beyond, the new contractor has provided accurate cost estimates based on past performance. NOTE: The table reflects 10 years of EDUCATE funding.
