The Veterans Affairs Department is gathering insights on the support and installation for a Global Positioning System (GPS) tracker and automobile tracking services.
The work would include providing the hardware, installation, training and monthly wireless GPS vehicle tracking and fleet management. The VA is looking for a Web-based solution and software capable of viewing all the vehicles equipped with GPS.
The VA wants a feature that allows for real-time tracking of vehicles and on-demand and scheduled reports. It also is seeking real-time location pinging, on-board vehicle diagnostics, and the capability of recording position-velocity-time data every 1 to 8 seconds.
The VA released the RFI Aug. 22. Responses are due by Aug. 26.
