  • 3.1.r1 - Hire a full-time Manager for Grant Management and Development
    Description

    The Program Review Survey conducted by EDCT of its customers included three open-ended questions. For the question "What new/emerging technologies or high growth areas should EDCT offer training in," majority of them wrote in either "Solar Training" or other types of "Green Technologies" and or "Nanotechnology" training as needed. Therefore, as the respondents identified and consistent with the market trends, there is going to be a growing need for providing short-term job training in emerging technologies like Green Technologies and Nanotechnology.

    Rationale

    EDCT needs to hire a full-time Grant Manager to seek and win grants offered for short-term job-training, especially in emerging technologies such as Green Technologies and Nanotechnology.

    EDCT need only funding for this position the first year. By the second year, the position can be fully-supported with the indirect costs the grantors allow the District to keep from the grants. EDCT anticipate fully supporting this position from the proceeds of the grants.
