“Our goal is to deliver and discuss state plans that reflect the public-safety priorities of each state and territory for the nationwide public-safety broadband network,” said Dave Buchanan, FirstNet director of consultation, in a blog. “To achieve this, we will build on our consultation efforts through governance body meetings, SPOC team interaction, executive meetings and additional public-safety meetings.”
The blog said the engagements strive for targeted outcomes, including:
• Validate who is important to the state plan process in each state
• Describe the state plan delivery and review process in each state, including access considerations and web portal content
• Affirm states’ priorities, such as business factors and public-safety needs
• FirstNet will also work with its future awardee to refine value propositions and capabilities specific to each state or territory. Consultation with the states will help ensure that each governor receives an accurate, effective proposal that reflects the state’s needs.
