US Ignite is seeking quotations from vendors to provide occupancy data on commercial and military facilities on Fort Benning sourced from mobile location data aggregators. The objective of procuring this data is to help installations realize energy cost savings by identifying opportunities to conserve energy when facilities show patterns of underutilization.

This pilot project falls under the Fort Benning Smart Installation and Community Dashboard (SICD) Program being managed by US Ignite, which is associated with the Installations of the Future (IoTF) program managed on behalf of the Assistant Secretary of the Army for Installations, Energy and Environment. The pilot project and the IoTF program are part of a broader effort to develop a Common Operating Picture for Garrison Commands across the Army enterprise, and if successful, the project has the opportunity to be scaled across to additional locations on Fort Benning and other Army installations.

Additional details can be found in the RFQ Document below.
