Canadian City Selects Federal Engineering to Help with Dispatch Requirements Study
Monday, October 18, 2021 | Comments

The city of Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada, chose Federal Engineering (FE) to develop a dispatch systems requirements study encompassing CAD, records management system (RMS) and radio networking.

The city’s request for proposal (RFP) provided an overview of its requirements. Iqaluit is the capital of the Nunavut Territory and is located at the south end of Baffin Island. The city is the newest capital city in Canada and has experienced a period of rapid development and growth. Iqaluit is the seat of government for the territory of Nunavut and is the home base for many federal and territorial government departments. The city is a regional center for the territory with many northern businesses in Inuit organizations making it their base of operations.

To continue to meet the public-safety needs of the growing city, Iqaluit sought a consulting firm to investigate, provide an options analysis and design new CAD, RMS and radio systems. These new systems will support the city’s fire, ambulance, municipal enforcement, after-hours public works, alarm monitoring and contracted government of Nunavut (GN) after-hours dispatch.

The city seeks to transition to a highly reliable, integrated CAD/RMS that will improve users’ overall access to information and benefit from advanced functionality with a modern system architecture. Additionally, the city seeks to implement a new radio system that will be compatible with the new CAD and RMS systems.

“Few consulting firms have the breadth of experience in all the requisite technologies,” said FE President and CEO Ronald R. Bosco. “Even fewer understand operations in arctic climates. The combined background of our Canadian and U.S. subject matter experts fulfils Iqaluit requirements. We will deliver solutions that are both particle and affordable with a minimum of risks. In addition, FE can support procurement and implementations efforts when the city is ready to move forward with this project.”
