Request for Proposals - Administration of Western Partnership For Regional Invasive Species Management


DEC's Office of Invasive Species Coordination (OISC) has sent out a second notice extending the deadline for the Request for Proposals for contracts to administer the Western New York Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISM). It is anticipated that the PRISM will have a paid coordinator under state contract. PRISM functions are further described in the Scope of Work and Proposal Narrative of the Request for Proposals (RFP). Click here for DEC's full Request for Proposals. 

Proposers must possess a minimum of five (5) years of experience coordinating partners (at least three distinct entities including federal, state or local government and/or non-government organizations) engaged in cooperative delivery of landscape-level conservation activities of similar size, scope and complexity.

Proposal due date is October 5, 2012 (11:00 AM EDT). Written questions on proposals will be accepted through August 31, 2012 (11:00 AM EDT). Answers to questions will be provided to prospective proposers by September 11, 2012 (close of business). 

At the time of release of this RFP, four PRISMs (APIPP, SLELO, CRISP, LIISMA) are administered and coordinated by non-profit organizations under state contracts.
