Requirements & Responsibilities

There are several areas requiring proponent consideration before submitting a nomination for the development of new distributed learning content.


Memorandum of Understanding - Contracting Officer Representative

All Army requiring activities (RAs) that wish to utilize the Combined Arms Products Distributed Learning Contract (CAPDL) must complete the attached CAPDL COR Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) by following all applicable policies and procedures specified in the MOU.

The focus of this memorandum is to ensure the effective oversight of contract requirements when contract support cannot be directly monitored by a TCM TADLP/CAPDL Contracting Officer Representative located at Fort Eustis, VA.

Memorandum of Understanding - Personally Identifiable Information (PII) in Products Developed Under the CAPDL Contract

This memorandum provides the policy for PII use in products developed under the CAPDL contract. This written permission must be provided to the TADLP for inclusion in the contract file.

Government Furnished Information (GFI)

The CAPDL contract requires the compilation of GFI resources before the completion of a Performance Work Statement for new content. GFI will need to be complete, current, and readily accessible before a contract is awarded.

Migration Of DL Content and Courseware

DL content and courseware has been delivered on a variety of learning management systems, portals, and other virtual environments. In July 2010, an all Army activities message was sent to TRADOC centers and schools advising them of a requirement to migrate all such content to the Army Learning Content and Management Capability for delivery.
