Responses to this Request for Statements of Interest will be used to identify potential investigators for a project to be funded by the Department of the Navy. The project shall gather and analyze historical data and information to determine baseline conditions for public lands that were recently withdrawn from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) under fiscal year 23 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) legislation. Findings will be utilized to evaluate and understand potential ecosystem impacts (e.g., biodiversity loss, type conversion, vegetation health, fire return interval, etc.) of the change in land use. This effort may require additional monitoring to assess trend over time and current rangeland ecosystem health on newly withdrawn lands in the Fallon Range Training Complex (FRTC). Information shall support future data-driven decisions on how to improve, modify, or otherwise mange these lands for overall ecosystem health while maintaining the training mission to support military readiness. Additionally, this information is anticipated to inform climate models and provide support for identifying future climate resiliency efforts. The estimated total value of the requirement is $288,500.00, to include one (1) Base Period in the amount of $73,000.00, and two (2) Option Items totaling $215,500.00
