Sandpoint Broadband Feasibility Study and Business Plan

  • Category:Solicitations
  • RFP Number:BroadbandFeasibilityStudy
  • Start Date:05/20/2016 12:08 PM
  • Close Date:06/16/2016

The City of Sandpoint seeks qualified vendors to conduct a broadband feasibility study and develop a comprehensive economic development and community telecommunications strategy.  The City reserves the option to include additional related services in the resulting vendor contract after reviewing vendor proposals.  A more detailed description of the desired deliverables is provided in the linked document below.

The City will consider proposals from single vendors or from multiple vendors working as a team, though a prime contractor is highly desired in the case of the latter.  The ideal vendor will have excellent technical and analytic depth in areas of interest to the City under this RFP, and must be highly-effective communicators, particularly in translating technical concepts to non-technical audiences.  The City prefers firms with experience working with public sector organizations, and particularly municipalities and rural communities like Sandpoint.

The City is employing this procurement method to both explore the costs and logistics of procuring the described services, while also evaluating alternative mixes of additional service offerings from a diverse vendor community.  As such, the City reserves the right to reject any and all proposals or any part thereof, to waive any formalities or informalities, to award the contract to the most responsive and responsible respondent(s) as deemed in the best interest of the City, or to suspend the procurement if the desired outcomes are not achieved.
