Two Central US Interoperability Region (CUSIOP) members, the North Texas Tollway Authority (NTTA) and the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority (OTA), have issued a request for information (RFI) addressed to interested suppliers of RFID transponder products. They are seeking information about products that support and promote interoperability among all CUSIOP Agreement parties for purposes of provisioning new toll road users and/or replacing existing RFID transponders issued and in use as the lifecycle of those transponders ends. The information gathered will be used by the CUSIOP Agreement agencies to refine their approach(es) and assist in the development of any RFQ or RFP that may subsequently be issued. Interested vendors are encouraged to respond to the RFI, but response is not a prerequisite for participation in any future procurement process that may take place. Responses are due no later than 2:00 pm (CT), December 3, 2021. The RFI is being issued to obtain information only, and it does not constitute a Request for Qualification or Request for Proposal, and does not guarantee the issuance of such solicitations in the future.
The CUSIOP Agreement agencies are NTTA; OTA; the Texas Department of Transportation; Harris County, Texas; the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority; the Fort Bend Grand Parkway Toll Road Authority; and the Kansas Turnpike Authority.
