One thought on “Request for Proposals (RFP) – Emergency Notification Systems

  1. The suggested school sites listed in your RFP as wanting services are all higher education universities/colleges. My company provides notification/emergency response services for K-12 school districts and I am wondering if responding to this inquiry would be valuable to you for that K-12 subset of your K-20 OETC cooperative. Since the product offerings for emergency notification services differ so greatly between K-12 and higher ed, our services would not be applicable to the higher education subgroup.

    Would our services be considered as an option for your K-12 school districts? Or, should I wait to respond to an RFP that is set specifically for the K-12 systems?
