  • Possible Additions to NG9-1-1 Diverse Connection Costs
    Monday, July 1, 2019
    Richmond (ISP) –  ISP has determined there may be additional costs in connecting PSAPs to the ESINet. Each PSAP needs two distinct paths for the two diverse broadband circuits to enter the building. If you do not already have two, a second route needs to be established from the property line into the building. The cost of adding this was not originally considered in the migration proposals because we were not aware of the issue until circuit installation started. To date, we have seen quotes of $30,000 to $40,000 to bring the second connection into the building. The 9-1-1 Service Board is committed to cover these costs for NG9-1-1 implementation. The Approval Process for Diverse Broadband Circuits outlines the simple process for approval of these costs.

This calendar will be updated with 2020 calendar dates when they become available.

PSAPs seeking NG9-1-1 funding need to complete a  Proposal Acceptance Letter (PAL)   The PAL confirms a PSAP's acceptance of the information contained in their NG9-1-1 Migration Proposal (MP) and signals their intent to deploy NG9-1-1.  The funding amount requested in the PAL should not exceed the recurring and non-recurring cost estimates contained in the MP.  Currently all MPs are based on the AT&T solution.  A similar process will be used if a locality selects a different provider.  .    

Once the migration funds are awarded, the PAL requires that you sign a contract vehicle within three months of the award.  The deadline dates are listed in the schedule above.  For the AT&T solution, this is the AT&T Participation Agreement (PA).  Please contact AT&T representative below for the contract, your solution, and network architecture:

Transitional funding for Text-to-9-1-1 is available for PSAPs to implement this service in advance of their NG9-1-1 deployment to meet the legislatively required deadline of July 1, 2020.  This transitional funding replaces any funding identified in a PSAP's MP or included in a PSAP's NG9-1-1 funding award.  PSAPs seeking Text-to-9-1-1 funding need to complete a Text-to-9-1-1 Grant Program Application and could receive up to $50,000 in funding to implement this service.     

Additional information on the NG9-1-1 Migration and Text-to-9-1-1 funding programs can be obtained from the FY21 PSAP Grant Guidelines.
