DOT NHTSA RFP: Geographic Information System (GIS) Standardization Project

Notice ID 693JJ921R000012

Related Notice 693JJ921R000012

“The Strategic Plan for 911 Data and Information Sharing, also published in early 2019, developed a collaborative effort between the National 911 Program and 911 stakeholders from both the public and private sectors.  This document was produced in response to a formal recommendation made by the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Task Force on Optimal PSAP [Public Safety Answering Point] Architecture (TFOPA), in its report which recommended the “establishment of a national system that would enable the collection and analysis of standardized 911 administrative, operational, cost and computer-aided dispatch (CAD) data.”  Data uniformity, including [Geographic Information System (GIS)] data uniformity, are mentioned several times as an essential element of a truly interoperable, seamlessly connected national 911 system.

GIS is one of the basic building blocks of NG911 and many jurisdictions are replacing their [Master Street Address Guide (MSAG)] databases with GIS.  As the U.S. looks forward to a nationally interconnected, seamless 911 system of systems, what are some of the issues that will have to be overcome, in order for 911 calls and data to be successfully transferred among different jurisdictions?  While standards for 911 GIS exist, how has their actual implementation resulted in variances that could cause problems when location data is transferred?  A number of companies currently provide services to support 911 systems, and more than one national GIS organization exists, with differing perspectives on GIS deployment.  How should these differences be addressed?  Is data uniformity advisable, or are data exchange and data interface mechanisms a better solution?  In order to achieve to a nationally interconnected, seamless 911 system of systems, these questions should be answered…”

“C.2 OBJECTIVE

The objective of this contract is to produce a document containing the current status of GIS utilized by all stakeholders within the national 911 community; the benefits of and challenges to national GIS uniformity and 911 GIS data sharing, the resources that will be necessary and strategies that will facilitate the execution of a plan to achieve truly interoperable GIS data sharing nationwide.

C.3 GENERAL REQUIREMENT

The contractor shall provide NHTSA with assistance in support of the National 911 Programs to produce a document that includes the current status of GIS within the national 911 community, challenges to national uniformity and 911 GIS data sharing, and strategies to achieve truly interoperable GIS data sharing nationwide. The final document should identify and describe:

  • The current status of technologies enabling the development, transmission, receipt, utilization, processing, sharing, maintenance, and storage of GIS data among GIS data sharing entities, and any technological issues that must be addressed to achieve true GIS data sharing;
  • The current status of required entities (i.e., standards bodies, private sector companies, national GIS organizations, and 911 agencies) as organizations and entities, and the governance, administrative and technological issues that must be addressed to achieve true GIS data sharing
  • The resources, budget, and partner agencies/organizations needed and optimal resource utilization strategies;
  • Scientific research requirements and metrics that identify the value and/or accuracy of 911 GIS data;
  • Strategies for addressing all identified challenges and cost issues;
  • Strategies for utilization of the completed document to facilitate the execution of a plan to achieve truly interoperable 911 GIS data nationwide…”

“C.5.3 Written Report on The Current Status Of GIS

Within four (4) months of award, in collaboration with the NHTSA COR, the Contractor shall use all available sources of information and all available points of contact, to complete a written report providing an assessment of the current status of technologies enabling the development, transmission, receipt, utilization, processing, sharing, maintenance, and storage of GIS data among GIS data sharing entities. This information will serve as the basis for a gap analysis, to identify technological issues that must be addressed, to achieve true GIS data sharing among multiple 911 agencies nationwide, using NG911 technologies.

The NHTSA COR will review and provides comments to the Contractor NHTSA within one (1) week of receipt of the written report.

C.5.4 Written Report on The Current Status of Required Entities and Issues

Within seven (7) months of award, in collaboration with the NHTSA COR, the Contractor shall use all available sources of information and all available points of contact, complete a written report providing an assessment of the current status of the multiple entities currently actively involved in 911 GIS technologies and service; enabling the development, transmission, receipt, utilization, processing, sharing, maintenance, and storage of GIS data among all GIS data sharing entities within the 911 stakeholder community. This information will serve as the basis for a gap analysis, to identify governance, administrative, financial, and operational issues that must be addressed, to achieve true GIS data sharing among multiple 911 agencies nationwide, using NG911 technologies.

The NHTSA COR will review and provides comments to the Contractor NHTSA within one week of receipt of the written report…”
