Pre-solicitation - Broadband Serviceable Location Fabric Database Project 3
The Federal Communications Commission has a requirement to establish the Broadband Serviceable Location Fabric Database as part of the broadband mapping effort required as part of the Broadband Deployment Accuracy and Technological Availability Act (Broadband DATA Act), 47 U.S.C. 641 et. seq.
The Fabric consists of a database of all locations in the United States where fixed broadband Internet access service has been or could be installed, and incorporate the Fabric into the availability collection. Fixed broadband providers must report their service area in the form of either a polygon shapefile or a list of addresses or locations, and the Fabric will form the foundation for the location- or address-based reporting.
The resulting contract will be a firm-fixed price contract. The period of performance will be a base year with four 1-year option periods.
