The City of New Orleans has launched an open call for ideas on how to connect its most vulnerable residents to economic, social, and cultural opportunities through technology. New Orleans seeks ideas to harness the City’s diverse culture to introduce the target population to technology in a non-threatening manner, so they can use it to advance professionally and economically. This Request for Information (RFI) is an alternative to a city procurement, in which the City first seeks information about available solutions to a problem. In a second phase, the City might procure and implement a best-fit solution(s) submitted to this RFI.
The deadline for submissions is Friday, April 7, 2017 at 4:00 P.M. CST.
