wireless communicationsThe First Responder Network Authority has extended the deadline for interested vendors to submit their final bids on the agency’s national public-safety broadband network project from April 29 to May 13.

FirstNet said Friday it also released a batch of responses to the more than 400 questions that the agency has received from industry since it published a request for proposal document on FedBizOpps.

“This is a vital next step in the iterative process as potential offerors work to craft their proposed solutions to deploy the first-of-its-kind wireless network dedicated to first responders, and FirstNet staff are diligently working to answer each question, ” said FirstNet CEO Mike Poth.

The agency indicated it has also pushed back a submission deadline for “optional” capability statements on technology and service offerings for the planned emergency communications infrastructure by two weeks, until March 31.
