    1.

    Figure 3 of UTM-REQ-01, FIMS (Prototype) System Requirements Specification, Version 1.0 of 27 Apr 2021 (RFP Schedule 4) was noted to be cropped incorrectly. Version 1.1 of UTM-REQ-01 corrects Figure 3.

    2.

    Paragraph (f) of the Agreement Overview of Schedule 2 of the RFP, FIMS Prototype Pilot Agreement, did not include a date for comments on the draft agreement. An updated version of the schedule corrects this.

    3.

    Paragraph (f) of the Agreement Overview of Schedule 2 of the RFP, FIMS Prototype Pilot Agreement, indicated that Developers should sign the draft agreement as part of their submission. This has been corrected to request that developers simply indicated whether they have not comment with the terms and conditions.

    4.

    Page 13 of Schedule 2 of the RFP, FIMS Prototype Pilot Agreement, indicated the RFP was released in February 2021. This has been corrected.
