Grants to New York State County governments to improve emergency response communications and performance. Applicants must be members of, or demonstrate that they are committed to join, at least one regional communications consortium. Funding is intended for communications technology purchases in order to improve system operability and interoperability statewide.
The SICG-Formula Program concentrates on improving interoperability and operability of communication systems in New York State. The SICG-Formula Program focuses on minimizing gaps in interoperable communications by aligning technology acquisitions with its operational use by first responders, providing the foundation necessary to accomplish a high level of interoperability.
OIEC seeks to ensure progress towards the goals and milestones described in the New York State Statewide Communications Interoperability Plan (SCIP) and toward communication priorities identified by the Federal government (i.e., SAFECOM Guidance). The SICG-Formula Program focuses on providing stability, sustainment, and further development of LMR systems and regional solutions implemented to date.
The SICG-Formula Program intends to aid county, local, and municipal public safety organizations by enhancing emergency response; improving capability, governance structures, operating procedures, and infrastructure development; and addressing SAFECOM guidance from OEC.
The main concepts, chief criteria, program and technical requirements of this grant program continue to expand and strengthen OIEC’s commitment to regional partnerships, formalizing governance, and implementing operating procedures between counties and agencies. Applicants for the 2019 SICG-Formula Program must utilize non-proprietary, open standards-based technologies and equipment.
