If you have any interest or would like to participate in this program, TNRIS is here to help! TNRIS can offer partnership guidance as well as assistance with the pre-proposal/proposal process. We have substantial experience coordinating and managing regional acquisitions in Texas spanning several agencies/entities at a time through our Strategic Mapping program. We can also offer a competitive, established contract and method of acquisition through the High Priority Imagery and Data Sets Contract (HPIDS). The HPIDS contract comprised of pre-qualified vendors with technical experience and expertise. The contract has a proven track record of saving money and time, and can satisfy all technical and specification related evaluation criteria for this program.
