Under a five-year, $20 million contract, ICF Caliber will oversee a child care clearinghouse that will include a virtual library with a variety of publications.

The company also will furnish technical assistance for state and territory child care and development fund grantees and other early care and education organizations.

In addition, the company is charged with establishing partnerships with other early education programs and developing presentations for conferences.
