The United States Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) office has posted a request-for-information (RFI). While emphasizing that the post is not a request for proposal (RFP), the office did include a scope of work that calls for "all necessary management, supervision, materials, services, support, maintenance, identification and performance of cabling activities required for approximately 500 ICE locations." Specific tasks that would be carried out include "site surveys, installation, testing, documentation, problem resolution and maintenance of video, wireless, data and voice communications cabling and related equipment."
ICE estimates the work would begin in January at an estimated value of $30 million to $50 million. The office expects interested parties to act quickly, requiring responses by noon EST on Friday, November 19.
