INL Takes Bids for INL Training Academy

The US State Department's Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs is taking bids for na INL Training Center.  It appears that they have a place already in mind as the location of this academy is somewhat restricted.    You can see the specifications for the academy.

What this seems to translate into is that  INL is trying to centralize all training for INL contracts at one facility.  I can see why they may want to do this as opposed to traveling to different training sites across the country  for different missions.  This will simplify things for the State Department.  How the facility will manage to provide mission specific training is yet to be seen.  It can be done, but it seems training for all missions will be more generic than it is now.

I am not sure if this is a good or bad thing - it may be a burden on different companies, as either their trainers or evaluators will need to travel to the training center to prepare for the missions.  Of course, this is likely a first step in making all State Department Contracts direct with the State Department vs going through contract companies.  Whatever the case - change is on the horizon.
