Assessment of Project Plans

It will also aid the Executive Director of the Commonwealth Office of Technology in making a determination of whether state agencies’ project plans meet the architecture and standards for primary wireless public safety voice or data communications systems.

KWIEC Project Review Checklist
- Get a quote that lists the make and models of all of the equipment or of the services desired.
- Completely fill out the 2016 KWIEC Assessment form. Note major end items only (Radios, Computer) on the Assessment Form by make and model. It is understood that power supplies, mics, and antennas are needed so they do not need to be listed on this form.
- 2020 Federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency / Emergency Communications Division (ECD) guidance requires standards based radios. If you are asking for approval of proprietary digital (non-P25) or hybrid (proprietary + P-25) radio systems you must include a written justification with a project plan stating how you will eventually upgrade to a standards based P-25 system. This must be included with your KWIEC Project Assessment review request.
- Rename the KWIEC Assessment Excel file to your agency's name and then email the documents to Chuck Miller at email@example.com
- Place a printed copy of these items as described above (Vendor Quote, KWIEC Assessment Form, request for waiver and project plan (if applicable), and a copy of the email sent to Chuck Miller) into your Grant Packets when you submit them. This will show the granting agency that you have requested KWIEC review.
The KWIEC Assessment form must be returned as an excel file. A KWIEC Tracking number will be added to the form once received. PDF, Faxes, JPG, or other files cannot be processed and will be rejected.
