Friday, April 7, 2006 — For the second straight year, Fulcrum IT Services Company* has earned the maximum rating from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) for our work on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, or NAEP effort. Since 2002, Fulcrum IT has served on this Cost-Plus-Award-Fee contract as the web operations manager for this important national education effort.
In this role, Fulcrum IT has been responsible for the development of many innovative solutions to facilitate the conduct of national assessments of over 1 million students. These critical assessments, some of which are mandated under the Federal No Child Left Behind Act, give educators and policymakers the insights they need on the progress of America's children. Fulcrum IT's creation of collaborative workspaces, global task tracking, innovative data reporting, and quality assurance solutions helped support NCES in the 2005 NAEP assessment and data release.
In the assessment, NCES reported that Fulcrum IT's commitment to customer service was evident in our response to customer needs: "Fulcrum IT is proactive in building good relations with NCES staff and other NAEP contractors, proposing new strategies, analyzing and reporting information [e.g., Report of Activities] and collecting and using NCES feedback."
"We are very proud of our efforts to support such an important national priority," said Jeff Handy, President of Fulcrum IT. "We are committed to continuing our excellent support and service to the Department of Education and NAEP."
