Emergency Management

Due to the temporary closure to the public of some Cowley County offices due to COVID-19 concerns, the formal bid opening for RFP# 02021310 has been postponed until a later date to be determined. All sealed bids that have not already been received by the County must now be submitted via US Postal Service to the address provided on the cover sheet of the RFP. Bids must be postmarked by March 19th, and received no later than 5pm on March 25th in order to be accepted. Once the bid opening has been rescheduled all bidders will be provided with as much advance notice as possible, and a public notice will be provided on the County’s website. At this time the bid award date has not changed, but we will contact all bidders if there are any other changes to the RFP timeline.

If there are any questions strictly related to the change in submission guidelines, they may be submitted in writing via email to myself at We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience and understanding.


Cowley County has released a Request for Proposals (RFP) to solicit competitive responses for the continued maintenance and support of an existing radio dispatch console system and associated on site infrastructure. This equipment is utilized by two Cowley County departments to serve the needs of area first response agencies. Our current contract expires in 2020, and as a result all qualified vendors are invited to submit a proposal for this request. A copy of the RFP is attached, and it will also be available on our website later today.


A pre-bid meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, February 19th at 10am. The meeting will be held at 321 E. 10th Ave in Winfield, KS. Prospective bidders will have an opportunity to visually inspect the existing console equipment, and to formally ask questions or seek clarification regarding any portion of this RFP. Meeting attendance is encouraged, but not required.


All contact regarding this RFP should be directed to John Stradal via email at, or by phone at (620) 221-0470. For RFP Click Here
