Washington County Selects Federal Engineering for 9-1-1 Modernization Project
Monday, March 09, 2020 | Comments

King County, Washington, awarded Federal Engineering a contract to assist in the procurement and implementation phases of its 9-1-1 modernization.

“King County is pleased to have Federal Engineering on our team as we advance 9-1-1 services for our citizens,” said Ben Brier, King County 9-1-1 director. “The county and its regional E9-1-1 partners recently completed a 10-year technology strategic plan. In the plan, it was identified that the county would replace the currently distributed E9-1-1 system with a single-system architecture platform. King County requested proposals from experienced 9-1-1 consultants to assist in this process, and we decided Federal Engineering was the best choice.”

Federal Engineering will provide life cycle support for the project including:
• Supporting the county’s E9-1-1 program office and individual public-safety answering points (PSAPs) in developing and documenting the requirements for the new platform
• Working with the county to select the platform RFP evaluation team
• Facilitating the evaluation of the platform RFP proposals and resulting platform vendor selection
• Acting as a liaison to the selected platform vendor during the contracting phase
• Helping oversee the platform vendor’s initial design phase to ensure that it meets project requirements
• Assisting the program office staff with preparing materials and acting as the subject matter expert for internal project review gates, specifically project planning and architecture reviews
• Working with the county’s IT business analysts to gather King County IT requirements
• Helping with the county’s IT managers to develop tasks to hit their deadline
