The U. S. Department of Education, Office of the Under Secretary (OUS) has a requirement for a study involving several analyses of existing data to be conducted as part of a National Assessment of Vocational Education (NAVE). These analyses, using national data sets, involve research on issues at the postsecondary level that are of policy relevance to the Carl Perkins Vocational and Technical Education Act of 1998 (Perkins III). As defined in the law, vocational and technical knowledge and skills the individuals need to prepare for further education and for careers (other than careers requiring a baccalaureate, master´s, or doctoral degree) in current or emerging employment sectors. In defining vocational education, the law specifically focuses on the program of study rather than the type of institution. Therefore, the contractor shall be sensitive to this distinction when defining postsecondary occupational educatiion students. This is a full and open procurement and it is open to all responsiblesources.
