Public Safety Communications Research (PSCR) Program Public Safety Broadband Stakeholder Meeting, San Antonio, TX, June 12, 2017
—As prepared for delivery—
Good morning everyone – I am honored to be here today kicking off the Public Safety Broadband Stakeholder Meeting for 2017.
I appreciate Dereck Orr’s invitation to come back and deliver the opening remarks for the 4th year in a row. We’ve all come a long way since my 1st session in Westminster, CO in 2014. Thanks to a lot of folks in this room we’ve gone from laying out a strategic roadmap that took us through extensive outreach to all public safety stakeholders, issuing an RFP, conducting a thorough review of the proposals from the bidders, achieving a successful outcome from a protest, and finally awarding a contract to AT&T.
