911 Program Issues RFI on 911 Data Systems

July 5, 2016–The National 911 Program has solicited comments on the establishment of a “nationally uniform data system, to document PSAP 911 call data and the data related to the operation of 911 systems at all levels of government within the 911 community.” A request for information notes that such a data system “was identified as a need by the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC’s) Task Force on Optimal PSAP Architecture (TFOPA)” in a final report approved earlier this year (TRDaily, Jan. 29). “The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments and ideas on all aspects of the development, implementation and operation of a nationally uniform 911 data system from the broad 911 stakeholder community, including CAD vendors, CAD interface developers, PSAP managers, local and State 911 authorities and agencies, national professional 911 associations, other Federal agencies, academia, public interest groups, and any other interested parties; and to request responses to specific questions provided below.” Comments are due Sept. 28 in docket no. NHTSA-2016-0069.
