The U.S. Department of Education, Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), proposes to enter into multiple, one year contracts for the purpose of increasing the capacity of comprehensive school reform model developers. Congress has provided funds (see House Report 825, October 19, 1998) to increase the capacity of comprehensive school reform model developers. This competition will be open to both large and small businesses, but the Department anticipates that a minimum of two awards will be set aside for small businesses. Successful offerors will be required to increase the number of qualified staff to provide technical assistance to low-achieving schools, rural schools and schools participating in the Comprehensive School Reform Demonstration (CSRD) program. Successful offerors will also be required to improve materials to implement CSRD strategies, develop strategies for technical assistance using technology, and attend meetings in the Washington, DC area.
