Department Of Education, Impact Aid Grants System Award

Manassas, VA – Oct 3, 2023- Zip Zap IT Solutions, a HUBZone certified, ISO 9001:2015 standard company, is pleased to announce that it has once again been awarded a $1.2 million contract by the U.S. Department of Education (ED) to provide critical Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) services for the Impact Aid Program (IAP).

The IAP, administered by the Office of Elementary and Secondary Education (OESE), is a vital federal formula grant program designed to alleviate the financial burdens placed on local education agencies (LEAs).

This significant initiative is one of the largest OESE grant programs in terms of funding.

One of the key components of the IAP is the Impact Aid Grants System (IAGS), which is customized to streamline the grant application process, manage applications, calculate payments, and generate financial transactions for LEAs.

“Zip Zap IT Solutions is honored to be selected to continue applying our expertise to this significant program with the U.S. Department of Education,” said Marwan Abu-Fadel, CEO at Zip Zap. “We are committed to delivering unparalleled IV&V services that support the Impact Aid Program’s goals and mission.
