FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA, May 27, 2024 – Just announced, the State of New Mexico’s Department of Finance & Administration has finalized a contract with Federal Engineering, Inc. (FE) to support the State’s implementation and transition to Next Generation 9-1-1 (NG9-1-1).

Mr. Joseph Baros, Chief Information Officer for the State, provided an overview: “We are very pleased to onboard Federal Engineering to provide the state with comprehensive and thorough Independent Verification and Validation (IV&V) services as we roll out a NG9-1-1 system. This project will include, but is not limited to, the evaluation and assessment of the implementation of a standards-compliant Emergency Services IP Network (ESInet) and Next Generation Core Services (NGCS) transition from the current legacy E911 environment to a statewide, interoperable Next Generation 9-1-1 solution based on the vendor contract deliverables. The completion of services provided by FE is set for June 2026.”
