NTIA Releases Instructions for State Notices to Opt Out
Thursday, October 26, 2017 | Comments

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) provided instructions for states that plan to opt out of the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet).

An opt-out notice must be made by the governor or the governors’ duly authorized designee, and if made by the latter, evidence of such delegation must be provided to NTIA with the notice. An opt-out notice should also certify concurrent notification of the opt-out decision to FirstNet and the FCC.

All opt-out notices must be filed via the dedicated email address: sapp@ntia.doc.gov or via certified mail. Carolyn Dunn is the contact for questions at cdunn@ntia.doc.gov.

Governors must make opt-out decisions by Dec. 28. The full notice is here.
