NEIWPCC, in cooperation with Long Island Sound Study, the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, and other partners, is seeking a Request for Proposals for the continued development of the Long Island Sound Best Management Practices tracking tool. The BMP tracking tool for nonpoint source and stormwater pollution will focus on the Connecticut portion of the Long Island Sound watershed. The objective of the RFP is to further develop and implement a tracking and accounting system (Phase II, Part-2) based on the recommendations of Phase I, and the comments received during Phase II-Part 1 of the project. The results of the project will advance the tracking and reporting of a nonpoint source and stormwater tracking tool in Connecticut. This project will build upon the previous phases of this project while dovetailing with ongoing modeling and tracking projects being completed by others in the Long Island Sound watershed.

Applicants who are eligible to submit proposals in response to this RFP include: federal (non-EPA), state, or local government agencies; interstate agencies; private non-profit organizations and institutions; for-profit organizations; and academic or educational institutions.  Partnerships are allowed. There is $250,000 available for this project and it is anticipated that one successful project will be chosen.

Proposals must be submitted by no later than 12:00 PM EST (noon) on July 31, 2023. The RFP is available on the NEIWPCC website.
