West’s Safety Services Division, North America’s leading provider of 9-1-1 technology solutions, has been awarded a Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) Direct Contract – DIR-TSO-3468 for public safety software and services, contained within the West Geographic Information Systems (GIS) product suite.

The Texas DIR contract simplifies the process for state and local government agencies in the State of Texas to purchase West’s public safety GIS offerings at an approved discount. This award is significant because it allows agencies to directly acquire products and services through the DIR contract, eliminating the need for a costly RFP process.
