These guidelines are intended to serve as a jumping off point for government agencies and partners as we design, install and roll-out new IoT systems using public space or assets.
In some cases, these guidelines may be able to be implemented fairly easily out-of-the-gate. In other cases, new policies, procedures, and resources will need to be developed and may take time. Special circumstances and concerns may also exist for IoT systems and/or data related to public safety, security and law enforcement. As new tools – for example, operational checklists, contract templates, inventories, and sample agreements – are developed, they will be added to this site on a semi-annual basis.
The IoT guidelines are a living document and exist in perpetual “beta” – as such, we will continually collect feedback and monitor their use, making adjustments and additions as necessary so that the guidelines remain as valuable and useful as possible for city government and other stakeholders.
