Dec 2- RFI 13-03, Services, Operations, and Maintenance Support for Oconee FOCUS (Fiber Optics Creating Unified Solutions)

All documents are available on our web site at:  http://www.oconeesc.com/Departments/KZ/Procurement.aspx  

This Request for Information (RFI) has been initiated to enable the County to identify private-sector partners who will provide network services to end-users leveraging the middle-mile fiber.  We seek input from potential partners regarding the terms and conditions under which partners would provide Internet and other last-mile network services to homes and businesses.  We would like to identify partners that would lease and manage dark fiber or wavelength services. In addition we also seek partners who will take on the Oconee FOCUS operation and maintenance and operation responsibilities. This may either be done by the network service provider or by a separate partner.

The main goal of this RFI is to obtain private sector input on an operations model and partnership that would:  (1) provide operations and maintenance services to the County for Oconee FOCUS;  (2) maximize revenues in the aggregate through last-mile services that leverage Oconee FOCUS assets; and (3) support a relationship that is mutually beneficial between the private partner and the County while enhancing overall economic development objectives.
