    Date: Statements of Interest due by 20 Aug 2014
    Brief Description of Anticipated Work:
    The purpose of this is to develop a vegetation map for the CMAGR that is currently under management by MCAS Yuma. The vegetation map will be used to provide for land management of the range by assisting in the identification of rare and/or sensitive vegetation types, and by developing a baseline for which to gauge vegetation changes. In addition, a flora collection will be compiled, with specimens archived at two herbaria, to be used as vouchers for future plant identification purposes.
    Period of Performance. The period of performance for this Cooperative Agreement will be dependent upon the final proposal selected, but is expected to be 18 months. The work is anticipated to begin in September 2014.

    The AF manages lands in all states and territories in accordance with all Federal environmental laws and regulations, including the Sikes Act, National Environmental Policy Act, National Historic Preservation Act, Endangered Species Act, Clean Water Act, and others. The AFCEC Environmental Center of Excellence (ECOE) requires technical support for environmental programs to ensure that AF, federal, and state environmental regulations are met while minimizing the impact of AF activities on natural resources. The cooperative agreement establishes a cost-effective, time-efficient and flexible capability to support AFCEC program. The Government will periodically issue Task Orders to provide for the maintenance and improvement of natural and cultural resources on, or to benefit natural historic research on, the installations or at installation support centers.

    Project Title: Continuation Of Evaluation Archaeological Sites, Otero And Thurgood Training Areas, White Sands Missile Range For National Register Of Historic Places Eligibility For White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico
    Date: Review of RSOI will begin 4 Aug 2014
    This project is designed to provide assistance conducting cultural resource site evaluation for the cultural resources management program within the White Sands Missile Range Environmental Stewardship Branch located at White Sands Missile Range. The scope of this agreement includes supporting the program manager (PM) through various program management duties to evaluate archaeological sites within the Otero/Thurgood Training Area on White Sands Missile Range through test excavation and analysis of recovered data. The data gathered will be sufficient to make National Register of Historic Places eligibility evaluations. The eligibility determinations will be made in accordance with the National Register Criteria (36 CFR 60) and White Sands Missile Range historic contexts. The project is intended to build on previous efforts and result in a comprehensive inventory archaeological sites in the Otero/Thurgood Training Area on White Sands Missile Range relevant to all cultural periods.

    Project Title: Integrated Wildland Fire Management Plan Lualualei, Navy Region Hawaii
    Date: Review of RSOI will begin 5 Aug 2014
    This project provides fire management planning documents and wildland fire expertise to facilitate the development of an Integrated Wildland Fire Management Plan (IWFMP) that is compliant with all pertinent DOD, Navy, state, local, and other federal regulations. The IWFMP will formalize existing fire pre-suppression and suppression measures as well as any current or proposed prescribed fire program. The plan will update, where necessary, wildland firefighter training, fuels management, and firefighting procedures to meet currently applicable requirements and targets desired by the Navy (Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam [JBPHH], Navy Munitions Command East Asia Division [NMC EAD], Naval Communications Area Master Station Naval Radio Transmitter Facility [NCTAMS NRTF]). The plan will make considerations for operations and training requirements, ecosystem health and function, cultural and natural resources, and social and financial concerns among others.
    The plan will include all required elements of an IWFMP as defined by the Army Integrated Wildland Fire Management Plan Template since there is no Navy IWFMP guidance. Additional elements will be considered on a case by case basis in coordination with the Navy.
