佛罗里达州官员说,与L3Harris的续航可能会推迟到春季

佛罗里达州管理服务部的一位官员今天说,佛罗里达州公共安全实体可能不知道与L3Harris续签合同的条款,以便明年春天之前继续运营全州执法无线电系统

佛罗里达州管理服务部(DMS)的一位官员今天说,佛罗里达州公共安全实体可能不知道与L3Harris续签合同的条款,以便明年春天之前继续运营全州执法无线电系统(SLERS)

“我们将继续与L3Harris进行对话,”Gillespie今早的联合特遣部队会议上说。“我们每隔一周开一次会,继续讨论与系统继续运行相关的几个不同场景。我确实认为,鉴于预算的不确定性,这些对话将持续到(佛罗里达州议会)会议

斯波丁联合特遣部队会议上说:“我只想回到记录中,重申这对各机构来说有多大的担忧。”。“这是一个执法和公民安全问题,有有效的沟通,时间非常紧迫

“我们必须和地方检察官一道,共同发出我们的声音,并与地方检察官共同努力。”

一月份,DMS宣布https://urgentcom.com/2020/01/10/florida-ends-talks-with-motorola-solutions-on-p25-contract-will-seek-next-generation-system/据一位政府官员称,LMR巨头拒绝根据竞购条款签署合同后,“>结束了与摩托罗拉解决方案的谈判。当时,佛罗里达州DMS秘书长乔纳森·萨特(Jonathan Satter)致摩托罗拉解决方案公司(Motorola Solutions)的一封信中写道,佛罗里达州DMS公司将“朝着新一代系统采购的方向前进”——DMS公司今天的声明中重申了这一点

佛罗里达州预算中有一个240万美元的项目为该州目前对SLERS II的愿景提供了一些指导

根据预算项目,“(DMS)必须发布竞争性采购,并此后颁发更换全州执法无线电系统的裁决书。”。“未来的服务至少必须采用行业标准的项目25第二阶段交付方法。采购还必须考虑新兴技术,以增强互操作性、促进公共安全、提高覆盖率和增强音频清晰度。”

咨询公司联邦工程预计将10月底提交第二次SLERS II采购的商业案例,但该文件尚未准备好今天的联合特遣部队会议上提交

Gillespie说:“我们仍研究我们的商业案例,最后时刻对其进行调整。”。“这应该很快结束,一旦最终确定,我们将能够与成员们分享。”

Florida public-safety entities may not know the terms of a contract extension with L3Harris to continue operation of the Statewide Law Enforcement Radio System (SLERS) until next spring, an official with the Florida Department of Management Services (DMS) said today.

“We’re continuing to have conversations with L3Harris,” Gillespie said during the JTF meeting this morning. “We’re meeting every other week and continuing to talk through a couple of different scenarios related to continuing operations of the system moving forward. I do think these will be conversations that continue into [the Florida Legislature] session, just given the uncertainty of the budget.

Gillespie did not provide any details about the budget “uncertainty,” but the Florida economy—particularly the portion dependent upon the tourism industry—has been impacted negatively by the COVID-19 pandemic. Florida reportedly could be facing a $2 billion budget shortfall next year, depending on its access to federal funding.

“I just want to go back on record and reiterate how big of a concern this is for the agencies,” Spaulding said during the JTF meeting. “This is a law-enforcement and citizen-safety issue—having effective communications—and the timelines are running really, really short.

Speaking on behalf of the Florida Highway Patrol, Spaulding said that the tight timelines associated with SLERS mean that the organization has less flexibility than it might have otherwise.

“We have got to stand together as agencies and with DMS to go forward and pursue this collectively and make sure that our voices are heard at the Legislature and the governor’s office.”

“When you’re dealing with your legislators and out supporting your LBRs, … please put that on their radar, as well,” Spaulding said. “I think that’s a critical issue that could negatively impact [SLERS], if it doesn’t get renewed.”

In January, DMS announced that it ended talks with Motorola Solutions after the LMR giant declined to sign a contract based on the terms of its bid, according to a state official. At the time, Florida DMS Secretary Jonathan Satter wrote in a letter to Motorola Solutions that Florida DMS would “move toward the new procurement of a next-generation system”—language reiterated in today’s statement from DMS.

“[DMS] must release a competitive procurement and, thereafter, issue an award for the replacement of the Statewide Law Enforcement Radio System,” according to the budget item. “At a minimum, future services must utilize the industry-standard Project 25 Phase II delivery methodology. The procurement must also consider emerging technologies to enhance interoperability, promote public safety, improve coverage and enhance audio clarity.”

“We’re still working through our business case, kind of making last-minute tweaks to it,” Gillespie said. “That should be wrapped up very shortly, and we’ll be able to share that with the members once that’s finalized.”
