Collection and Development of Tribal Protocols Guidebook for DoD Legacy Resource Management Program

Sponsor Agency: Department of Defense
GB CESU Partner Agency: Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Sustainment
Deadline: July 19, 2021 3:00 pm
Link: https://gbcesu.unr.edu/wp-content/uploads/RSOI-4607-Tribal-GB-access.pdf
Description:

Responses to this Request for Statements of Interest (RSOI), number W9126G-21-2-SOI-4607, will be used to identify potential investigators for a project to be funded by the Department of Defense (DoD) Legacy Resource Management Program which assists DoD in protecting and enhancing natural and cultural resources while enabling military readiness.

The intent of this agreement is to collect extant tribal protocols from other Federal agencies for Federally recognized tribes as well as creating a guidebook to aid installations in the development of tribal consultation protocols. Personnel often lack references and examples to assist in creating consultation protocols with tribes. This collection of protocols and its accompanying guidebook will provide these references to improve and ease the development of consultation protocols.

Approximately $125,000 is expected to be available to support this project for the base period. The period of performance will be 12 months from date of award.

Mojave National Park Analysis of a Before-After Control-Impact (BACI) Wildlife Water Development Pilot Study

Sponsor Agency: National Park Service
GB CESU Partner Agency: National Park Service
Deadline: July 17, 2021 11:59 pm

Description:

Mojave National Preserve (MOJA) completed a Management Plan for Developed Water Sources and Environmental Assessment (NPS 2019). This plan, in part, is intended to lay the groundwork for management of Gladings gallinaceous guzzlers (Glading 1943) or Small Game Guzzlers (SGG) within existing laws and policies.

This Notice of Funding Opportunity is requesting assistance of university faculty and student programs to synthesize, analyze and summarize the data collected through 2021 and provide recommendations for interpreting and future study design. Specifically, the request is to: 

1) analyze bat and bird recordings to derive species presence, diversity indices and other potential parameters for analysis, 

2) analyze and derive species presence, frequencies of detection and timing from camera information compiled in spreadsheets, 

3) synthesize and preview limited quail age ratios and GPS location data, 

4) assess differences between SGGs based on climate, vegetation cover, and absence or presence of water, 

5) based on the above data, provide recommendations on further study design, propose evaluation criterions to rank SGG status and need as mitigation on climate.
