Livestock and Poultry Mortality Management BMP Expert Panel
The Chesapeake Bay Program through its Expert Panel Management Cooperative Agreement with Virginia Tech is seeking proposals to assemble an Expert Panel (panel) to determine pollution control performance measure estimates for best management practices used to manage routine mortality of poultry and livestock, including composting, incineration, gasification, freezers and rendering or landfills. Proposals should address the process of developing scientifically-defensible recommendations for nitrogen and phosphorus performance estimates (i.e., efficiencies) for these practices. When conducting their business and reporting their findings, panels are expected to adhere to the process and protocols contained in the current version of 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 Model, also referred to as the “BMP Protocol.” View the RFP for more details about the scope of work and evaluation process for proposals.
Proposals submitted under this RFP may request funding up to $60,000 in total costs, including any indirect or overhead. Proposals are due by the close of business on June 18, 2018. Proposals should be submitted to Dr. Brian Benham (email@example.com). Questions about this RFP should also be directed to Project Coordinator Jeremy Hanson (410.267.5753; firstname.lastname@example.org) or Dr. Benham.
Closing Date: June 18, 2018
