    The School is the common learning service provider for the
    Public Service of Canada. It was created to bring a unified
    approach to serving the common learning and development needs of
    public servants and to help ensure that all public service
    employees across Canada have the knowledge and skills they need
    to meet the challenges of the public sector of the 21st century.
    The School supports meeting the learning needs of the Public
    Service of Canada through training and development that enables
    the Public Service community to meet evolving challenges in
    fulfilling their mission of serving Canada and Canadians.  The
    School is committed to promoting a strong corporate culture in
    the Public Service, fostering a culture of learning, and being a
    catalyst and resource for the ongoing development of the Public
    Service as a learning organization.
    The School manages the operations of a learning portal and
    learning management system for federal public servants.  The
    learning portal is the delivery site for all e-learning content
    offered by the School, including e-learning self-paced courses,
    videos, blogs, performance support tools and a wide range of
    e-learning resources.  The e-learning content offered will be a
    mix of products developed internally by the School and
    commercial off-the-shelf content.  The e-learning content will
    be offered by the School at no cost to end users. While there
    are a total of approximately 260,000 public servants, a
    segmented approach to accessing the different types of content
    is expected based on the  needs of the various communities of
    As part of its objective to broaden the range of e-learning
    content available to public servants, the School requires
    commercial off-the-shelf self-paced e-learning and video based
    learning content to add to its learning portal in specific
    subject domains that match the common learning needs of the
    public service.
