MiCTA Seeks Proposals For E911 and Next Generation 911 Services

MiCTA seeks vendors to provide E911, next generation 911, E-911 capable MLTS and Emergency Notification System services to its members

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - May 8, 2012 - MiCTA, a national non-profit technology consortium, and Northern Michigan University have issued a Request For Proposals from qualified vendors of Enhanced 911 (E911), Next Generation 911 (NG911) and Emergency Notification Service (ENS) vendors. Vendors that wish to receive a copy of the RFP should contact MiCTA to request one immediately. The deadline to respond is Wednesday, June 6, 2012.

"Many of our members have a growing need for enhanced 911 services," according to Tim von Hoff, Chief Operating Officer of MiCTA. "Our education members must respond to a growing number of state and local regulations regarding the provision of enhanced 911 services, especially as they apply to multi-line telephone services and residential buildings on campus. Many of our municipal members are also looking for ways to improve their ability to respond to incoming emergency assistance calls from a variety of technologically advanced communications devices."

"Our members turn to us for assistance with managing technology demands," says von Hoff. "We have been monitoring the growth in E911 regulations that affect our membership and have been working with our members to help them comply with changes in both legislation and communications technologies." According to von Hoff, MiCTA can negotiate better pricing from vendors than members would be eligible for individually. Von Hoff also says that by issuing an E911/NG 911 and ENS RFP on behalf of its membership, MiCTA can save its members the work and expense involved in issuing their own individual RFPs.
