Working Groups 

  • GIS Data Stewardship  
    This Working Group will focus on GIS Data Stewardship specific to GIS layers used for Location Validation and Emergency Call Routing Functions in Next Generation 9-1-1. Topics will include: GIS Database Development; Quality Assurance/Quality Control; and GIS Data Maintenance. We are looking for a well-balanced group that will include contributions from those with expertise in any of the following: i3 architecture; GIS; PSAP operations, and especially those who speak PSAP. Calls are Friday's from 1-2:30 pm ET.


  • Policy Routing Rules  
    The NENA PRR WG is reforming to refresh and update the three documents covering this topic. The WG will assess changes in all NENA standards since the initial release of the documents and make required changes. The WG will also evaluate the possibility of collapsing the three documents into two or perhaps a single document going forward. We welcome participation from all stakeholder groups but are especially interested in recruiting 9-1-1 Authorities and vendors that have implemented NG9-1-1 in general and ESRP/PRR in particular and have some operational experience with this functionality. The WG will have a conference call every Friday at 1:00 pm mountain time beginning on June 29, 2018. It is anticipated that given the narrow scope of work, the WG could fulfill its charter by the fall.
