The OSRI announces a competition for Computer Simulation of the Spatial-Temporal Distribution and Impacts of Dispersed and Non-Dis persed Oil Spills

The Oil Spill Recovery Institute is accepting proposals for technologies which demonstrate three dimensional trajectories as well as the resulting physical and biological environmental impacts of dispersed and non-dispersed oil in arctic and subarctic marine environments. Proposals which focus on Alaskan oil transportation routes and utilize realistic models will be given preference.

The total FY99 budget for this program area is $200,000 and OSRI anticipates funding one or more projects from this total amount. The duration of the grant awards will be for one year with an option to renew.

The Oil Spill Recovery Institute: Past, Present, and Future Directions The Oil Spill Recovery Institute (OSRI) is seeking proposals to conduct surveys of unique, dominant and/or previously undescribed, intertidal resources at risk to oil spills in Prince William Sound (PWS) and the Copper River Delta (CRD). OSRI anticipates surveys staging out of Cordova, Alaska. Professional services sought through this RFP include the survey prelogistics (design, equipment preparation, etc.), data acquisition, data analysis (including preparing a GIS of the data), and reporting of results. Data acquisition and analysis will require coordination with the OSRI personnel who are responsible for maintaining the database. The maximum amount of funding for this contract is $75,000. The selected contractor will provide and operate all scientific equipment. All sampling shall be conducted synoptic with GPS measurements, ensuring the acquisition of data that is both temporally and geographically encoded. Contractor will provide and operate all necessary computer equipment and software to acquire and process data. Contractor will cooperate with other teams of researchers and technologists that OSRI might employ to advance the ability to monitor intertidal or adjacent areas that are at risk to oil spills. The selected contractor shall prepare a preliminary report detailing the survey methods, the analysis of measurements and the anticipated results one month after the end of the field season. The contractor is responsible for providing an electronic copy of the 2d survey in ARCINFO file format with the final report. The final report and data file is due on December 31, 2000. The survey design will utilize all available aerial, vessel and historical information on the distribution of resource or its habitat to reduce size of the survey to a reasonable area. Where large patches of organisms are found, repeated surveys will be conducted to estimate precision. On each survey as many samples will be conducted as possible to satisfy statistical requirements. Quasi-continuous sampling with optical measurement is preferred over discrete sampling and non-quantitative sampling is discouraged. Prospective contractors interested in submitting proposals should direct technical questions and project proposals to the OSRI staff (Gary Thomas, Walter Cox or Nancy Bird) at P.O. Box 705, Cordova AK 99574, (907) 424-5800. Proposals should contain the name and address of the firm; name, address, phone and fax numbers of the contact person for the proposal; a comprehensive description of the equipment and procedures to be used; as well as a brief description of the qualification of the firm and key personnel. Experience of key personnel is critical. The deadline for proposals is January 31, 2000 and proposals must be received by the deadline to be considered. Contractors wishing to submit a proposal are advised that qualification and capabilities will be considered in the evaluation process. Specific criteria that will be used to evaluate proposals include:

Proposals which build upon the OSRI geographic response plans workshop proceedings entitled “Geographic Response Plans for Alaska” (available through OSRI), which outlines techniques new to Alaska for designing spill response plans for the protection of priority sensitive areas along the coast, will be given preference. Local spill response organizations are encouraged to apply. The total FY02 budget for this program area is $25,000. The duration of the grant awards will be for one year.
