The N.C. Department of Information Technology’s Division of Broadband and Digital Equity posted a draft request for proposals today for public review and comment. This draft signals the Division’s intent to identify one or more vendors to provide risk management services and strategic advisory services as the Division implements Governor Roy Cooper’s $1 billion plan to build digital equity and ensure that every North Carolinian has access to an affordable, high-speed internet connection.
“The public review process will help us collect diverse feedback from a broad range of stakeholders, including unserved communities across North Carolina, internet providers, and vendors,” said Deputy Secretary for Broadband and Digital Equity Nate Denny. “This coordination is key to maximizing the impact of these funds and helping us plan for additional federal investments under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.”
The draft request for proposals will be available on the Division’s website at https://www.ncbroadband.gov/documents/general/broadband-implementation-partner-draft-rfp for two weeks until July 28. Feedback may be emailed to NCDITpartnerfeedback@nc.gov. All comments will be reviewed prior to issuance of the request for proposals.
