Nevada approves $2M contract for education data system

CARSON CITY, NV — The Nevada Board of Examiners on Tuesday, September 12th, has given an approval on a $1.78 million contract deal to support the statewide long-term software system.

The contract deal, which was granted through the Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval’s Office of Workforce Innovation (OWINN), goes to Eduloka Limited — a Reno-based company that does operate as inDatum. The contract agreement is set to expire on June 30, 2021.

The system, Nevada P20 to Workforce Reporting, provides data to the State of Nevada’s educators and policymakers.

The operation is tied to a federal funds that the Nevada Department of Education awarded four years ago to append a higher education and workforce data tracking to the statewide longitudinal data system.

The details will be used as an economic forecasting and agencies that use it comprise the State of Nevada Department of Education, Nevada System of Higher Education as well as Department of Rehabilitation.

Meanwhile, the Board of Examiners approved an increase to another contract deal for the student accountability system and statewide extensive data system. The contract deal’s maximum funding increases from $561,000 to $1.3 million because of the demand for continued hardware and maintenance services from Otis Educational Systems.

It’s the Nevada State’s third increase to the 2014 contract deal, which kicked off as a $187,000 agreement three years ago. The seven-year contract agreement expires June 30, 2021.
