Penndot launches telecom P3 project

On 19 May 2014, the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, PennDOT, launched a request for qualification (RFQ) for the Wireless Telecommunication Partnership Program.

The telecom P3 project comes after PennDOT received an unsolicited proposal.

The project includes the design and implementation of a revenue-generating program and managing the usage of property for wireless telecommunications infrastructure. The preferred bidder will be responsible for:

  • Analysis and identification of PennDOT property of potential value to wireless companies;
  • Marketing Commonwealth properties as potential wireless antenna sites, while accounting for future highway construction and maintenance projects that could impact wireless antenna sites;
  • Negotiating and administering lease agreements or other appropriate legal instruments;
  • Securing permits and approvals for the installation of new structures/ facilities;
  • Designing, building, financing, operating and maintaining the towers or other antenna platforms;
  • Payment of all capital, operational, and maintenance costs; and,
  • Program management, accounting, and related services.

The deadline for submission questions and request for clarification is 2 June 20014. Interested parties must submit their statements of qualifications on or before 27 June 2014.

PennDOT supports and is responsible for the construction, restoration, and maintenance of over 40,000 miles of state roads and highways, including city streets that are part of the state highway system, and about 25,000 bridges.
