NG9-1-1 Sustainable Funding Committee

ISP staff established the NG9-1-1 Sustainable Funding Committee in response to concerns expressed by the Virginia 9-1-1 community over the amount of recurring costs contained in the NG9-1-1 Migration Proposals (MPs) provided by staff to Virginia PSAPs. For many PSAPs, the amount of recurring costs included in their MP represents a two or three fold increase in the amount of recurring costs currently paid to their 9-1-1 service provider.

PSAPs will become responsible for these increased costs 24 months after NG9-1-1 deployment. The NG9-1-1 Sustainable Funding Committee will focus on developing a report that contains recommendations on how to mitigate the financial burden of recurring NG9-1-1 costs on localities. This report will be provided to the 9-1-1 Services Board at a future meeting.

Committee membership consists of 3 PSAP representatives, a Virginia sheriff, a NG9-1-1 industry representative, a VACo representative, and a VML representative. Here are the current committee members:

  • Christian Collier (Small PSAP)
  • J.R. Powell (Medium PSAP)
  • Eddie Reyes (Large PSAP)
  • Sheriff Brian Hieatt
  • Jolena Young (Board member)
  • Joe Lerch (VACo)
  • Terry Hall (VML)

Individuals representing the NG9-1-1 industry, VACo, and VML will be added shortly. The committee will report to Dorothy Spears-Dean. Additional information pertaining to this committee will be available from the ISP website shortly.
