Homeland Security issues RFI for Safecom

The Homeland Security Department released a request for information this week for Project Safecom, the initiative to connect wireless first-responder systems across federal, state and local agencies.

By Nov. 14, the department wants vendors to submit five- to seven-page white papers describing technologies, services or concepts for the project.

Safecom, one of the Office of Management and Budget's 25 Quicksilver e-government projects, is intended to help more than 44,000 local, tribal, state and federal public safety agencies improve the efficiency and interoperability of their wireless communications systems.

According to the RFI, available at FedBizOpps.gov, a broad agency announcement under which Safecom could fund demonstration projects is likely to follow.
