General Description of Requirement
The City of Vancouver (the “City”) is seeking quotations to determine if it enter into one or more contracts in respect of consulting services for moving towards zero hackathon.
In 2017, City Council approved the “Congestion Management Strategy” to build on the Transportation 2040 plan to enhance mobility in the City through the improvement of travel monitoring, road safety, smart and efficient transportation system, coordination of street use, and prioritizing the movement of people and goods. The Congestion Management Strategy recognizes that emerging technologies in software and data collection will play a vital role in the success of the Congestion Management Strategy, and of the resilience and reliability of the City’s Transportation Network. City of Vancouver is planning to hold a 2.5 day long congestion management themed hackathon scheduled from November 1 to 3, 2019 for approximately 100-150 participants.
The goal of the event is to bring together diverse groups of talented residents to work on new and innovative ideas for solving specific congestion related challenges. It will be a venue to exchange ideas, showcase data visualization tools, develop apps, and create maps or other digital solutions that can help City of Vancouver make informed decisions regarding our transportation present and future.
The event builds on past transportation safety themed hackathons previously hosted by the City of Vancouver, City of Toronto, and City of Calgary.
Vendors should carefully review Appendix 1 – Requirements for a detailed description of the City’s requirements.
