Additional Information on Eligibility
This requirement is posted as a Notice of Intent to issue a Single Source Cooperative Agreement with White Mountain Apache Tribe - Arizona.
This announcement is for U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Region 2, FY 2008, Mexican Wolf Project Support for the monitoring, assessment and conservation of the species. As set forth in the Statement of Relationship between the Tribe and the Service, the parties have a common interest in promoting healthy ecosystems and have agreed to cooperate on a government-to-government basis. The Service's Indian Policy and Secretarial Order No. 3206 provide that the Service will assist tribes in developing and expanding tribal conservation and management programs, assist tribes in identifying funding sources for fish and wildlife resource management, and pursue intergovernmental agreements to formalize arrangements involving sensitive species. On January 12, 1998, the Service issued the Final Rule announcing its decision to reintroduce Mexican wolves into the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area in eastern Arizona, and designated them as an experimental, non-essential population. The Fort Apache Indian Reservation (Reservation) lies outside, but immediately adjacent to, the western boundary of the wolf recovery area. The Tribe has the option of allowing or prohibiting wolf re-establishment on the Reservation. Mexican wolf recovery is a Federal responsibility, and the Tribe's participation in wolf recovery activities is voluntary. In August 1998, the White Mountain Apache Tribal Council passed Resolution No. 08-98-184, which provides for the initiation of a Mexican Wolf Management Program on the Reservation. The Tribe, in cooperation with the Service, developed the White Mountain Apache Tribe Mexican Wolf Management Plan, which was approved by the Tribal Council on August 3, 2000. In September 2000, the Tribe and the Service entered into a Cooperative Agreement, FWS Agreement No. 1448-20181-00-J826, which provided for technical assistance and funding to hire and train a wolf biologist. As justification for Single Source Determination, in accordance with Department of the Interior guidance (505 DM 2.14) USFWS Region 2 provides notice of its intent to make a single-source award for Phase 1, in the amount of $145,000.00, via a cooperative agreement with White Mountain Apache Tribe to foster cooperation on a government-to-government basis in Mexican wolf monitoring, management, and recovery to implement the current provisions, and subsequent revisions, of the Final Rule establishing an experimental, non-essential population of Mexican wolves in Arizona and New Mexico (63 Fed. Reg. 1752, January 12, 1998), and to provide for implementation of the Tribe's Mexican Wolf Management Program, as set forth in the White Mountain Apache Tribe Mexican Wolf Management Plan. The initial goal of the Tribe's Mexican Wolf Management is to return the Mexican wolf to the Reservation, adding to biological diversity and returning a historical and culturally significant species to the landscape. Additional awards and amendments are dependent on available funds. The WMAT is uniquely qualified to perform the activities based upon location and property ownership. This Notice of Intent is NOT a request for competitive proposals. There is no Full Announcement associated with this Notice of Intent to make a Single Source Award.
