Statewide Communications Interoperability Coordinator (SWIC)

 

SWIC Roles and Responsibilities: 

The SWIC is responsible for the daily operations of the State's interoperability efforts.  Primarily, the SWIC's implementation efforts will be guided by the initiatives outlined in the National Emergency Communications Plan (NECP) and the Statewide Communications Interoperability Plan (SCIP).  As implementation proceeds, the SWIC will seek guidance, input, and recommendations from the joint efforts of the Statewide Interoperability Governing Body (SIGB), State agencies, and regional governance entities.  The SWIC's roles and responsibilities as the central coordination point for the state play a critical role in the statewide interoperability effort.

SWICs formally serve as members of the National Council of Statewide Interoperability Coordinators (NCSWIC), a national governance body established to assist State and territory interoperability coordinates with promoting the critical importance of interoperable communications and best practice within their States and nationally.  SWICs often help develop and deliver reports to legislators and Governor's offices to help build relationships and an understanding of communication challenges with those involved in the State's interoperability efforts.  

The SWIC's role will be key in the Broadband Outreach initiative.  The SWIC will assist with the development of quality resources for educating stakeholders on the impact of public safety broadband, incorporate feedback from key public safety forum of stakeholders, and support stakeholders in securing, managing, and sustaining grant funding opportunities.  The SWIC will also assist with the State's outreach and education program on the broadband plan.
