Lee County Calls Upon Federal Engineering for Radio System Implementation Support
FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA, November 2, 2020 — Lee County, Florida has retained the services of Federal Engineering, Inc. (FE) to support the implementation of the County’s new public safety mobile radio system.
“Building upon prior work done by Federal Engineering, Lee County has come to FE to provide subject matter experts and program support services during the implementation of its new interoperable Project 25 standards-based radio system,” stated Brad Barber, Federal Engineering Director. “FE implementation support services take a project from the initiation, planning, and design review phases through installation, testing, and final cutover. FE will review the equipment vendor’s project plans before the County makes major commitments. We will determine if the equipment vendor remains compliant with the contract regarding system requirements, schedule, and cost milestones. To accomplish these goals, FE will provide the following services:
- Attend project status meetings to review project goals, objectives, tasks, schedule, and deliverables
- Review the vendor’s design documents and identify areas of deficiency if any
- Inspect each site to assess whether the equipment installations are in accordance with the specifications, meet good workmanship practices, and are within equipment standards.
- Witness coverage tests to assess methodology and data collection compliance
- Attend final system testing and observe test results
- Provide a memorandum to the County that identifies coverage and system testing results and any recommendations for the vendor to correct deficiencies
- Review the punch lists and assess retesting results to confirm that the deficiencies have been corrected”
