This Request for Information (RFI) is issued by The City of Calgary for the purposes of gathering information on navigation systems on mobile devices for pedestrians using the indoor Plus 15 network which is comprised of a series of bridges and walkways within buildings in downtown Calgary.
The Plus 15 navigation system is preferred to be at no cost to The City for purchase or maintenance of the solution.

The responses received from this RFI will assist The City to gather information in support of the potential creation of a subsequent Request for Proposal (RFP) and may lead to contract award through the evaluation of proposals. This is an opportunity for potential vendors to respond with their solutions and ideas that will help The City understand what types of solutions exists in the industry and determine requirements for a potential RFP.
Note: No commitment exists under this RFI and no award will be granted. This opportunity is published solely for the purpose of collecting market information and obtaining a list of potential bidders for the future RFP.

Information The City is seeking for on the navigation system:

  • What types of technological business model (e.g. mobile application for users to download) is available
  •  If application has ability to locate user and guide them to target destination
  • What data type(s) are required
  •  How frequently does the data need to be updated
  • What is required for the maintenance of the data
  • What physical infrastructure is required
  • What is the maintenance and lifecycle replacement schedule required for the physical infrastructure
  • How often does the navigation system need to be updated to adapt to new technological advances?
  • Are there revenue generation opportunities for service provider or The City?
  • Can the indoor navigation be tied into outdoor navigation?
