The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) Board approved the Request for Proposal (RFP) to deploy the nationwide public safety broadband network (NPSBN). The Board’s approval advances FirstNet's Strategic Program Roadmap and moves FirstNet a step closer to establishing a public-private partnership to build, operate, and maintain the NPSBN. The FirstNet RFP is objectives based and incorporates public safety’s needs for a nationwide broadband network.
The RFP is available now and applications are due by May 13, 2016. The award is anticipated by the end of the year.
