As a major step in its work to combat illegal robocalling, the STI-GA has issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) to select a Secure Telephone Identity Policy Administrator (STI-PA). The STI-PA applies and enforces the rules as defined by the STI-GA to put the SHAKEN protocol into action. This solution will help to authenticate calls and let consumers know the information displayed on their caller ID can be trusted — or when that is not the case.

The RFP and associated documents are posted below. Respondents must notify the STI-GA of their interest in bidding by e-mailing Interested parties will be provided with credentials and instructions for bidding. E-mail, facsimile, or hard-copy responses will not be considered. Responses are due by February 4, 2019.
