NKAPC seeking new land management software system

The Northern Kentucky Area Planning Commission (NKAPC) has issued a request for proposals for a new land management software system, which it plans to implement in January.

The NKAPC currently shares an off-site system with the Kenton County Fiscal Court to manage its permit applications and tracking, as well as data management.

The costs of using the service and its ongoing maintenance have led the organization to pursue an in-house option for approximately three dozen planning and zoning, building codes, GIS, and infrastructure engineering staff.

Prospective bidders must declare an intent to respond by 3 P.M. on July 30 and submit a full proposal by 3 P.M. on August 16.

The winning vendor will be selected on September 20 and will be chosen based upon its specialized experience and technical competence, project organization and management, estimated costs, scope of understanding, and organizational capacity.

The NKAPC has allotted $200,000 in its current budget for the new system.
