Manure Technologies Expert Panel Request for Proposals


The Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) through its Expert Panel Management Cooperative Agreement with Virginia Tech (VT) is seeking proposals to assemble an Expert Panel to determine pollution control performance measure estimates for several best management practices (BMPs) that fall under a broad umbrella of practices termed “manure technologies.” Proposals should address the process of developing expert-based recommendations for nitrogen, phosphorus, and sediment reduction values or BMP efficiencies for the various manure technologies specified in the body of this request for proposals (RFP) and result in the delivery of a science-based, defensible report on the effectiveness of specified manure technology BMPs in reducing N, P and sediment loss to the Chesapeake Bay. Expert Panels are expected to adhere to the process and protocols contained in the document entitled Protocol for the Development, Review, and Approval of Loading and Effectiveness Estimates for Nutrient and Sediment Controls in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed Model1 hereafter referred to as the “BMP Protocol.” The selected expert panel will be assisted by Virginia Tech’s Project Coordinator for Expert Panel BMP Assessment who is located in the Chesapeake Bay Program office in Annapolis, MD. Included in that assistance is logistical support for all Expert Panel conference calls (including providing a conference bridge) and meetings.
