State law requires the audit of the 911 system to determine: (1) the status of 911 service implementation (note: at this time there is at most one Public Safety Answering Points (PSAP) who is not on the system); (2) whether the moneys received by PSAPs pursuant to this act are being used appropriately; and (3) whether the amount of moneys collected pursuant to the act is adequate. These requirements are addressed in sections 4.3.1, 4.3.2, and 4.3.3 of the IFB.

Copies of the full IFB, project specifications, and prior audits on this topic can be accessed at

Legislative Division of Post Audit will evaluate the bids based on the evaluation as described in the IFB. The current evaluation requires several mandatory items and three scale-evaluated items.
