Since 2018, the Department of Administrative Services (DAS) has been working with the OCIO to identify
a learning management system (LMS) for required state-wide certification of training delivered through
DAS and your agency. The ultimate decision, based upon feedback from departments, was to select the
system procured by the Iowa DOT known as LearnSoft. Accordingly, our Performance & Development
Solutions (PDS) team is excited to announce a new training and development initiative through our
partnership with LearnSoft. Our goal is to expand the focus on excellence in learning through
implementation of a new Learning Management System (LMS).
DAS has started implementation calls with LearnSoft and we anticipate a go-live date of early 2020. The
new LMS will provide an engaging, learning-rich environment where training and reference materials
can be stored in a centralized area. This will help ensure employees have the information and tools they
need at their fingertips to better support their individual professional development endeavors.
DAS is working with agency Training Liaisons to implement the program in interested State agencies.
