Osceola County Issues RFQ for Web-Based Permit Notification System

The web-based system will notify subscribed citizens about local developments via text messages, emails and phone calls.

Osceola County has issued a request for quotations (RFQ) from qualified vendors to provide a permit notification system for Osceola County.

A key goal of this project is to upgrade the county's current mobile notification system and address the "301 Foot Challenge." Currently, residents within 300 feet of a development receive mail notifications about public hearings, but those at 301 feet or beyond do not. This creates difficulties for citizens and businesses situated beyond the 300-foot threshold as they may miss important public meetings.

The request states that vendors are responsible for supplying all required materials, hardware and maintenance, including software license fees, installation services, training, support and labor for the permit notification system.

System requirements include:
  • The ability to integrate with the Osceola County Environmental Systems Research Institute Inc. (Esri) platform
  • The ability to automate notifications
  • The ability to access the platform from Apple, Android, and Windows desktop and mobile devices

The submission deadline is 2 p.m. Feb. 16. More information on RFQ-24-14297-DN can be found on the county's solicitation portal. The contact for the solicitation is Damaris Nazario.
