FE chosen for Idaho NG9-1-1 project

Federal Engineering (FE) has been chosen by the State of Idaho Division of Purchasing (DOP) for its statewide NG9-1-1 project.

The agreement will see Federal Engineering provide NG9-1-1 consultation, evaluation and development services to support the state’s migration to the new system.

“This multiyear project will have a major impact on how we provide emergency services to the citizens of Idaho,” said A. Craig Logan, Project Manager for Idaho.

“We want to leverage the latest technologies and implement a standards-based system. Federal Engineering was selected because they have a great deal of NG9-1-1 experience, having completed similar projects for the states of Ohio, Utah, Montana, North Carolina and South Dakota as well as numerous local jurisdictions. Their team of experts will provide technical, financial, regulatory and operational advice, including assistance in planning, implementation, operation, maintenance, support, evolution and enhancement of NG9-1-1 across the state.”

According to Ronald F. Bosco, FE’s President and CEO, Federal Engineering’s scope of work for this important project includes the following tasks:

  • Stakeholder interviews, business process reviews and focus groups
  • High-level requirements definition
  • Comparison to national standards
  • NG9-1-1 deployment options
  • Request for Proposal development
  • Proposal evaluation criteria development and vendor evaluation
  • Implementation oversight
  • Ongoing project management throughout the transition

“The state will benefit from our experts’ participation in industry organisations to develop and promote NG9-1-1 standards and experience putting them into practice in real-world systems,” said Bosco.

“Our consultants regularly speak at NENA, APCO and IWCE conferences. We are respected members of the public safety community, chair national committees, and have had papers published by many professional organisations. FE’s Chief Consultant serves on the board of directors of the NG9-1-1 Institute.”

Federal Engineering develops voice, data and video networks for numerous organisations in the aerospace, energy, finance, education, publishing and computer services fields. In addition to its private-sector work, FE has completed thousands of communications projects for 46 state governments, as well as numerous local and federal government clients.
