Federal Engineering to Help Florida County Implement New Radio System
Tuesday, November 03, 2020 | Comments

Lee County, Florida, retained the services of Federal Engineering to support the implementation of the county’s new public-safety mobile radio system.

“Building upon prior work done by Federal Engineering, Lee County has come to FE to provide subject matter experts and program support services during the implementation of its new interoperable Project 25 (P25) standards- based radio system,” said Federal Engineering Director Brad Barber. “FE implementation support services take a project from the initiation, planning, and design review phases through installation, testing and final cutover.”

Federal Engineering will review the equipment vendor’s project plans before the county makes major commitments. The company will determine if the equipment vendor remains compliant with the contract regarding system requirements, schedule and cost milestones, Barber said.

To accomplish these goals, Federal Engineering will provide the following services:
• Attend project status meetings to review project goals, objectives, tasks, schedule and deliverables;
• Review the vendor’s design documents and identify areas of deficiency, if there are any;
• Inspect each site to assess whether the equipment installations are in accordance with the specifications, meet good workmanship practices and are within equipment standards;
• Witness coverage tests to assess methodology and data collection compliance;
• Attend final system testing and observe test results;
• Provide a memorandum to the county that identifies coverage and system testing results and any recommendations for the vendor to correct deficiencies; and
• Review the punch lists and assess retesting results to confirm that the deficiencies have been corrected.
