Yesterday APCO released a “Sample RFP Template for NG9-1-1 Capabilities” to assist 9-1-1 directors and authorities with their procurement activities, with a particular focus on achieving interoperability, cybersecurity, innovation and cost transparency. The template offers recommendations, guidance, and specific operational requirements, and is designed so agencies can customize their own RFP documents for all or portions of a complete NG9-1-1 deployment.
APCO’s hope is that wide use of this RFP template will serve to update and modernize the procurement process and place 9-1-1 professionals on the path to comprehensive, end-to-end NG9‑1-1 solutions.
