Specifications include, but are not limited to: The Town of North Kingstown Rhode Island is requesting bids to make upgrades to the structure and
systems within its public safety communications center. This RFP is part of a larger project that includes
the removal of an existing wall between Police and Fire dispatch to create efficiency and allow both
dispatchers to work together in the case of an emergency. The existing dispatch center was placed into
service in 2009, since that time several computer-based systems have been added to the center to manage
the complex tasks untaken by our dispatch professionals. As part of this project the Town of North
Kingstown would like to re-organize the systems in its dispatch center to increase functionality,
organization and resiliency of operations.
The Town of North Kingstown is seeking proposals to provide three critical components to re-creating a
collaborative dispatch center. First, modern sit/stand console furniture is being requested to allow for
ergonomic operation and organization of electronic equipment within the center. Next, an audio visual
management system is being requested to organize several systems within the dispatch center and make
them usable from all three operator positions when needed and displayed on a video wall.
Timing for this project must be closely coordinated with the Town of North Kingstown and is expected to
be completed during a ten (10) day work period where the dispatch center will be relocated during the
