The First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) May 14 held its first industry day with interested parties on the special notice and draft request for proposals (RFP) documents released last month.

FirstNet May 15 began accepting requests for one-on-one meetings with vendors. Instructions on how to make requests for one-on-one meetings will be available on the “Doing Business with FirstNet” website and on the Federal Business Opportunities (FBO) site.

More than 425 representatives from federal, state and local jurisdictions, as well as associations and the vendor community participated in industry day in person or via webcast. Held at FirstNet’s headquarters in Virginia, industry day was a key next step in FirstNet’s ongoing efforts to consult with interested parties on acquisition matters regarding the development of a nationwide public-safety broadband network.

“We are pleased with the attendance — both in-person and on the webcast — and the quality of our discussions,” said FirstNet Acting Director TJ Kennedy. “It shows there is a great deal of interest from market participants and the public-safety community in establishing the best possible network for public safety.”

The event was an interactive conversation that included an overview of the special notice and draft RFP documents by FirstNet officials, as well as questions and feedback from participants. Kennedy was joined by officials from FirstNet’s acquisition, finance, technical and state plans teams in delivering presentations and addressing participants’ questions.
