The city of Texas City (pop. 46,000) has released a Request for Information (RFI) for professional services in connection with the design and deployment of a municipal wireless network.
The RFI seeks a Consultant to help build a public Wi-Fi network in certain areas in the city. The Consultant will provide all professional design, build, oversight and related services necessary to complete the scope of work. The Consultant will develop the necessary design documents and provide full project administrative duties as necessary for the installation of the Texas City public wireless network.
The preferred network model would be a privately owned Wi-Fi network operated, maintained, supported and upgraded at reasonable cost to the City of Texas City. The City envisions being able to sell advertising on the landing page where users are initially logged on and/or asked to agree to terms of service.
Responses to the RFI are due no later than 5:00 PM, Central Standard Time, Monday, March 18, 2013. Details of the RFI, including technical requirements, coverage, project schedule, pre-conference date and address for sending your response are set forth in the Texas City RFI.
