Alliance issues RFP for emergency directory

The ComCARE Alliance has issued a request for proposals for the development of the next phase of the Emergency Provider Access Directory.

The procurement, partly funded by a Justice Department grant, calls for continued development of a geographic information system-enabled electronic directory that will hold emergency and administrative contact information for more than 100,000 public and private emergency response agencies nationwide.

A prototype of the directory has been developed and used in several demonstrations and trials. The directory allows vital information about a mass emergency or daily emergency event to be routed quickly and securely to appropriate authorities and organizations.

The ComCARE Alliance of Washington is a non-profit organization of more than 95 public and private organizations focusing on development and deployment of communications and information technologies for emergency capabilities.

A bidder's conference will be held July 22. Responses are due by Aug. 13.
The RFP is available for vendors to download on the ComCARE Web site at
