KC&A is noted for a number of "Firsts" in the telecommunications consulting business, including:
THE BAY AREA RAPID TRANSIT SYSTEM (BART) TELESYSTEM:
KC&A worked with BART to develop the first self sustaining profit center in a US transit agency (Currently with annual revenues in excess of $4 million); developing and leasing a fiber optic conduit system to competitive local exchange carriers in the Bay Area.
THE NEW JERSEY DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION (NJDOT) WIRELESS-SITE LICENSING PROGRAM:
Our consulting and marketing efforts with the New Jersey Department of Transportation resulted in the first statewide leasing program that allowed commercial wireless operators to place their facilities on NJDOT facilities. Annual revenues to New Jersey of $2.5 million. Eight other states have since emulated this model, including two KC&A clients, Caltrans and the State of Michigan.
EAST COAST CONSORTIUM FOR "EASY PASS":
KC&A was the marketing consultant, designated to determine and enhance commercial interest in construction of the "Easy Pass" electronic toll system that now serves all toll roads from New York City through New Jersey and Delaware. We also assessed and verified the revenue stream ($220 million) that the participating government agencies would receive from CLEC's in the underlying fiber optic conduit system that would support more than 80% of Easy Pass's construction costs.
CITY OF ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA PUBLIC/PRIVATE PARTNERSHIP:
KC&A was the negotiating strategist and primary consultant for the Public Works Department of Anaheim when they created the first public/private partnership arrangement in the United States between a municipal electric and a competitive local exchange carrier, First World. The relationship, formed in 1994, garnered more than $1 million annually for the City, as well as a host of other benefits.
