Request for Proposal

Title: Street Address Mapping (SAM)



The New York State Division of Homeland Security and Emergency Services (DHSES), Office of Cyber Security (OCS) is charged with the following responsibilities:

  • Leading and coordinating New York State's (State) efforts regarding cyber readiness and resilience;
  • Leading and coordinating geographic information technologies, including the New York State Statewide Digital Orthoimagery Program (DOP) streets and address mapping, and other framework data layers;
  • Geographic Information System (GIS) support during DHSES event responses;
  • Coordinating the critical infrastructure GIS data throughout the State;
  • Staffing the State's cyber incident response team; and
  • Monitoring the State's networks for malicious cyber activities.

The efforts of OCS are built upon cooperation and input from a variety of entities, and focus on building strong relationships between and among the public (federal, state, and local) and the private sectors to best ensure our State's cyber readiness and GIS coordination.

OCS received grant funding from the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to create address data in support of mapping broadband availability. In order to establish a long-term maintenance strategy for address points, OCS determined that it is critical to engage the 911 community. In an effort to leverage these funds to support the transition to NG911, OCS has conducted outreach to the 911 community. Given that the community recognizes the lack of uniformly good data and that many counties pay local telephone carriers to license address lookup data, the response has been very positive. This project will use the grant funds to contract for assistance in taking data available from OCS (which include State and local data), as well as optional data contributed by the successful Bidder, and establish accurate address points at structures and at the centroids within the parcel of addressed vacant parcels.
