Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s (ESE) Office of Education Licensure Awards Docufide Teacher Credentialing e-Transcript Project

Los Angeles, CA, August 20th, 2008: Through a competitive RFR bid process, Docufide was awarded a contract to provide the Office of Education Licensure with an end-to-end pilot demonstrating the capture and secure electronic delivery of Massachusetts teacher transcripts from the state university system. The project’s key tasks focused on the rapid implementation of transcript capture technology at participating sending institutions, the uploading of teacher transcripts, and their electronic delivery through Docufide’s secure network, either downloaded as a standardized PDF or using the Postsecondary Electronics Standards Council (PESC) XML data format.

 

Within a week of contract signing, Docufide successfully completed the installation, capture and delivery of transcripts from University of Massachusetts, Lowell and from Springfield College to the Office of Education Licensure. “We hope to take the momentum of this pilot project with Docufide and move forward with the concept of electronic transcripts that can benefit the Department, institutions of higher education, and applicants,” said ESE spokesman JC Considine.

 

Docufide’s CEO John Reese states, “With more and more progressive state agencies like Massachusetts DESE now pursuing e-Transcript exchange projects, we are witnessing a rapid conversion from historically arduous labor and time intensive processes to ones providing real-time data interchange and facilitating performance analysis, with obvious benefits for all educational stakeholders.”
