​SFMD seeks vendor for data analytics project

The Minnesota State Fire Marshal Division (SFMD) has published a Request for Proposal (RFP) for a statewide community risk assessment data analytics project.

The SFMD is seeking a qualified vendor that can: 1) compile incident and demographic data acquired from a variety of state resources; 2) provide data analytics services and risk assessment of the data; 3) complete GIS mapping; and 4) provide an information sharing platform. The services, in collaboration with the SFMD and Minnesota fire departments, will support the state’s effort to perform comprehensive analyses that identify relationships and patterns among residential fires, fire fatalities, and causal risk factors of populations affected by fires. Accurate fire assessment is essential for developing fire prevention efforts to mitigate incidents of death, injury and property damage caused by fire and fire-related hazards.

Please see the RFP​ for full details and vendor requirements.

This request will remain open until July 24, 2020, at 4 p.m.
