||Please join Mayor Edwin M. Lee, Supervisor Mark Farrell, and other City Leaders, CTC Technology & Energy and IMG Rebel to learn about San Francisco’s vision and plan for a ubiquitous, fiber-to-the-premises citywide fiber network.
The purpose of this market sounding is to hear directly from interested private parties about insights and potential market innovations that can help San Francisco meet its stated objectives, goals, and scope of the Fiber for San Francisco Project.
To close the digital divide, and to provide more choice, competition, and affordable Internet service prices, the City is seeking to develop a citywide network that provides fiber-based Internet service directly to every home and business. This network will be (1) universal throughout the City - available to everybody in San Francisco, regardless of income and (2) open-access – any qualified entity who wants to provide service to residents and businesses should be able to do so.
Additionally, the City anticipates that a subsidy to provide low-income San Franciscans with free or reduced-cost Internet will be necessary. The City has identified multiple ways to meet the stated project goals, including procuring a life-cycle, public-private partnership (P3) contract to design, build, finance, operate and maintain the citywide fiber network. For details, please consult the following report, prepared by CTC Technology & Energy and issued by the City and County of San Francisco: http://sfbos.org/sites/default/files/CTC-Deliverable22-final-20171017.pdf.
Firms interested in participating in the market sounding are asked to indicate their interest at the following Eventbrite link: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/industry-day-fiber-for-sf-tickets-39048329605 AND to register on or before Friday, November 3rd, 2017 by sending an email with the names, affiliation and email addresses of attendees to fiberforSF@sfgov.org. Please provide an accurate email address where the project team can contact your firm. San Francisco will circulate a formal questionnaire via email after the close of the registration period.
The City may elect to arrange individual meetings to receive direct feedback from organizations (firms or consortia) that have the capability of undertaking projects of a comparable size and scale, and / or provide services that meet the scope of this project. Organizations may request a meeting by sending an email with the names of participants, affiliations, and email addresses to fiberforSF@sfgov.org on or before November 3rd.
We look forward to seeing you,
Acting Project Director, Fiber for San Francisco
