Federal Engineering Selected by the City of Bartlett for Public Radio System Communications Consulting
FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA, September 14, 2015 — The City of Bartlett, TN has awarded Federal Engineering, Inc. (FE) a contract to review and evaluate its current radio system, recommend potential upgrades or replacements, assist in writing and reviewing vendor proposals, and provide project management during the implementation.
Inspector Dennis Canon of the Bartlett Police Department said: “The City of Bartlett seeks a public safety radio strategic plan that will meet the communications requirements of Police, Fire, EMS, Public Works and other City departments. In addition, the system must support interoperability among the surrounding jurisdictions including: Shelby County, City of Memphis, City of Germantown, City of Collierville, City of Millington, DeSoto County Public Safety, Marshall County Public Safety, and Fayette County Public Safety as well as the State of Tennessee. We want a proven firm to serve as our trusted advisors; a firm with at least five years of experience specializing in mobile radio communications systems for public safety. Federal Engineering was selected based upon the firm’s extensive radio consulting background which includes over 20 years of projects here in Tennessee. FE’s proposal was superior and the clear choice for Bartlett.”
Mr. Ronald F. Bosco, FE’s President, described the project: “The City has structured the project into two phases:
- Phase I – analysis of the existing infrastructure and recommendations for improvement, design and bidding of project. This phase will include a budget cost analysis of the system design and detailed technical specifications ready for competitive bidding.
- Phase II – project administration, oversight and management during the construction of the system which will include the following site visits, inspection, and validation and verification services.
FE will apply its proven methodologies refined over 1,000 successful projects to ensure Bartlett’s success.”
