A stakeholder entity list and the user population projection for OFIP through the development of targeted surveys, phone conversations
and informal Requests For Information. The ultimate objective of this task is to develop a reasonably and reliable projection of all potential NPSBN subscribers in Ohio at or near launch of the service, assuming that the State of Ohio’s launch requirements are met by the service, along with a statement of their respective broadband network requirements.
ATST will develop targeted surveys designed to develop an empirical basis and stakeholder statement for the State’s requirements. These surveys will gather information on topics such as devices, applications, and services required by the State’s stakeholders, specific barriers to adoption, required timetables for major features, and other issues of interest to the State and the SIEC.
Point of Contact (POC) Survey
The purpose of the POC survey is to develop a database of NPSBN contacts for all eligible user agencies throughout the State of Ohio.
User Population Projection
The purpose of the User Population survey is provide the actual, quantifiable metrics for OFIP including user population, specific barriers to adoption, adoption rates based on availability of “value-added” features, and adoption rates over time. The survey is to be completed by the POC identified in the POC survey.
The contents of User Population Survey will be vetted by OFIP workgroups.
