July 30, 2009 – Broadband advisors to Washington state’s governor have issued a request for proposals on the state’s broadband mapping project.

The Broadband Advisory Council said applicants should have an experienced track record, proven technology and a business model that addresses proven demand.

Under rules overseen by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, each state can choose only one grantee to construct its broadband coverage map.

Washington State has issued five recommendations for data applicants: Encourage public-private partnering in the development of grant applications; support proposals increasing funding for anchor institutions; support proposals that target unserved and underserved areas; leverage advances in science, healthcare, smart grid and energy efficiency, innovation in education and improved transportation infrastructure; and encourage proposals increasing access and adoption.

The council says it is hoping that Gov. Christine Gregoire will sign into effect policy enabling the Washington State Department of Information Services to proceed with mapping efforts immediately, in oversight of the statewide project.

The notice of funds availability for the Broadband Data Information Act was released July 1 and applications became available July 14. The council recommends that applicants partner and ensure their proposals are received no later than Aug. 14.
