     THE FINAL "Invitation to Federal Agencies & Federal
     Organizations to Submit Proposals to Develop Internet-Based
     Learning Modules & Communities" is now available online.  It
     is anticipated that 2 applicants will be selected for

     As mentioned in the message last week, this Invitation is
     much the same as the previous one (March 1998), with one
     major difference:

     The method of payment is more clearly defined.
     Specifically, in order to be selected, an agency must be
     able to pay teachers up front out of its own funds & then be
     reimbursed by GSA.

     If your agency is interesting in applying, you can find the
     Invitation & application form on the FREE site:

     Please feel free to forward this message to any colleague
     who may be interested.

     Questions are welcome.  Have great holidays!
