THW PE Certification

Professional Engineering Certification Service
Ensuring Federal Grant Compliance

Professional Engineer (PE) Certification Service

The Broadband, Equity, Access & Deployment Program (BEAD) provides federal funding to make grants to Eligible Entities for broadband planning, deployment, mapping, equity, and adoption projects and activities. The BEAD Subgrantee Qualifications Evaluation Guide specifies that prospective subgrantees must provide a network design and diagram certified by a Professional Engineer (PE) stating that the proposed network can deliver broadband service that meets the requisite performance requirements to all locations served by the project. Technical reviewers can analyze network designs, and infrastructure diagrams, and confirm the feasibility of the technical proposals.

Key Elements of the THW PE Network Design Certification

Submission Requirement – Applicants are required to submit comprehensive network designs and diagrams as part of their proposal for broadband infrastructure deployment.

Professional Engineer Oversight – The NTIA BEAD program mandates that a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) must review and certify their submitted network designs. The PE should have expertise in telecommunications infrastructure and possess a thorough understanding of the proposed deployment.

Structural and Regulatory Compliance – The PE will assess the network designs to ensure compliance with structural integrity standards and relevant regulatory requirements. This includes adherence to safety codes, industry best practices, and any specific guidelines outlined by the NTIA.

Quality Assurance – The certification process aims to guarantee the quality and reliability of the proposed broadband network. The PE will assess factors such as scalability, redundancy, and resilience to potential challenges.

Documentation of Certification – Following a successful review, the PE will provide a formal certification document. This document should clearly state that the network designs and diagrams meet the necessary engineering standards and are suitable for the proposed broadband infrastructure deployment.

KEY Benefits of Professional Engineer Certification

Credibility and Reliability – Certification by a Professional Engineer enhances the credibility and reliability of the proposed broadband network, assuring stakeholders and regulatory bodies of its sound engineering principles.

Compliance Assurance – Ensures that the network design aligns with established engineering and regulatory standards, mitigating potential risks and ensuring long-term compliance.

Risk Mitigation – Certification acts as a risk mitigation strategy, reducing the likelihood of structural issues, downtime, and unforeseen challenges during and after deployment.
