Pittsburgh Municipal Id Feasibility Study


We are no longer accepting submissions.

What is it?

The Office of the Mayor is seeking proposals from qualified individuals or firms to conduct a feasibility study to create a Municipal Identification Cards (ID) for the City of Pittsburgh. The study will require one or more firms to provide project management, market research, and technological research. Municipal IDs are useful tools that have been developed in other metro areas worldwide to connect marginalized populations, children, youth, and families with critical services, and to increase the accessibility of public services, spaces, and cultural institutions. The cards unify a population under a single system with multiple benefits and opportunities to participate. The City is seeking planning support to define the program parameters and requirements to create, launch, and manage the dissemination and maintenance of this program. This can be in the form of a single contractor who can manage the project, conduct market research and database/technology feasibility and cost-mapping, or multiple contractors to manage distinct aspects of the proposal.
