Solicitation/Project#: 6100043131 Solicitation/Project Title: Commonwealth Public Safety Broadband Ntwrk (CPSBN)
Description: The Commonwealth invites qualified entities to submit a proposal for the design, installation, and operation of a statewide broadband wireless system to serve Pennsylvania public safety entities.  It is the intent of this RFP to provide an alternative to the offer from the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) in the event the Governor decides to Opt-Out of the FirstNet offering.  If the Governor does not Opt-Out, a contract will not be issued as a result of this RFP.  The Commonwealth Public Safety Broadband Network (CPSBN) shall be fully interoperable with the FirstNet National Public Safety Broadband Network (NPSBN).

No funds have been appropriated by the Pennsylvania Legislature to enter into an agreement with a supplier of goods and services described in this RFP.  The CPSBN will need to be financially self-sustaining for the anticipated lifespan of the network.  If the Commonwealth moves forward with this project as a result of this RFP, the Offeror will be required to develop a self-sustaining business model leveraging the licensed 20 MHz of Band 14 spectrum within Pennsylvania to build, deploy, operate, and maintain the Pennsylvania portion of the NPSBN to serve public safety and may elect to monetize the excess capacity to provide commercial service to end users.
