management policies and procedures; and ranging in rank from E-7 to E-9 or O-1 to O-10 for
military personnel and GS-11 to GS-15 or SES-1 to SES-4 for civilian employees. In addition,
auditors employed by the Inspector General and DOD Audit Agencies are included in the overall
target training population. The target audience for the Fiscal Law training component of the ICW
includes not only the Anti-Solicitation Act investigators, but an additional target audience of nearly
60,000 financial managers, accounting clerks, program analysts, management analysts, program
managers, and contract managers who also require training. This additional target population
encompasses grade levels GS-5 and above, as well as military E-5 and above.
General Task Description: DFAC has selected interactive courseware (ICW) via CD-ROM as the
method of delivery. This ICW will be developed to address the specific issues required for
investigating officers of Anti-Solicitation Act violations, and provide a detailed understanding of
the basic principles of Fiscal Law. This training approach establishes the baseline for increased
efficiency and effectiveness of training assets and monies, while concurrently increasing student
retention of required material. In addition, it is anticipated that these core courses will also provide
standardized training that can be moved to an interactive distributive training environment to
reduce overall travel costs incurred by the geographical dispersion of personnel who require not
only the basic training, but also follow-on training.
The contractor shall produce an ICW Electronic Performance Support System (EPSS) via CD-
ROM to be used by Anti-Solicitation Act investigators in investigative techniques and procedures,
six hours of instruction on Fiscal Law, and a Fiscal Law Quiz. In addition, the Contractor shall
provide a written Certificate of Completion for each student who successfully completes the
course, and a hardcopy Courseware Guide (a CD-ROM copy will be provided at a later date and
updated as required). This program will yield several benefits in relation to student performance.
When completed, it will provide for consistency of training between agencies, the increased
availability of training information on demand, standardize training at geographically dispersed
work sites, and provide common techniques for the students in applying proper investigative
procedures throughout the Government.
