MSG To Work with State Leaders To Build Career Pathways Systems

MSG has been awarded a contract with the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Career, Technical and Adult Education (OCTAE) to build and implement state-wide career pathways systems. MSG will provide subject matter expertise to build the capacity of secondary and postsecondary career and technical education programs, aiding states in the development and expansion of comprehensive career pathways systems.

The award is a task order from a Career and Technical Education (CTE) Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) vehicle, on which MSG has been awarded one of three seats. Through this vehicle, MSG will provide extensive expertise on the development and implementation of national outreach and communication strategies; research and analyses of noteworthy practices, policies, and standards; and data and evaluation compilation. The findings and results form the study will lead to the creation and implementation of resources and tools in both virtual and print format accessible to various audiences. Lastly, MSG will also provide logistical and administrative support for technical assistance projects involving professional development and capacity building.

“We are excited to continually grow our career pathways focused portfolio of work,” said Ms. Chrys Limardo, Project Director. “We will draw from our extensive career pathways work at both the Department of Education and Labor to design effective solutions to the participating states and help advance the field,” Ms. Limardo added.
