Facilitation of the Development of a Structured Decision-Making Process for the Lake Champlain Basin Program
Grand Isle, VT – The Lake Champlain Basin Program (LCBP) is pleased to announce a Request for Proposals (RFP) for technical services to facilitate the development of a structured decision-making process for the Lake Champlain Basin Program. This project will improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and defensibility of the LCBP’s decision-making process around phosphorus management by providing the LCBP with a formalized and rigorous procedure for explicitly connecting the Program’s strategic management goals with the annual budgeting process. This project will support the management of phosphorus loadings by aiding planning and prioritization efforts as outlined in the LCBP’s long-term management plan: Opportunities for Action: An Evolving Plan for the Future of the Lake Champlain Basin. This RFP is supported by US EPA funds provided to New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) in partnership with LCBP.
This project will develop and execute a repeatable methodology for use by the LCBP Steering Committee to refine management goals, evaluate competing management strategies, estimate the outcomes of those strategies, choose preferred actions, and promote learning over time.
