Pennsylvania entities experienced in various aspects of fisheries, watershed science and policy, watershed stewardship, local leadership, wetlands, toxics, and other watershed issues are encouraged to submit proposals for consultant services technical assistance to support the federal Chesapeake Bay Program.
The Chesapeake Bay Trust will accept the RFPs until January 5, 2015. The trust has been designated to receive federal funds from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency through the Maryland Department of Natural Resources as part of the Bay Program Goal Implementation Team Project Initiative.
The work to be supported should advance outcomes from the Chesapeake Bay Agreement. Ten specific outcomes from 10 management goals have been identified as top priorities.
The request also includes nine components separated into nine individual scopes of work. Three focus on fisheries issues, two focus on citizen stewardship topics, one each focuses on wetlands, toxics, local leadership, and healthy watersheds.
Applicants can bid on one or more of the individual scopes of work, with each scope of work addressed in a separate proposal.
