(4) UNIQUE QUALIFICATIONS

Single Source Justification Description:

Single source justification was used in this proposal because Millerton Lake State Recreation Area is operated through a Management Agreement between Reclamation and California Department of Parks and Recreation (CDPR). (Contract No. 12-LC-20-0152). That Agreement states that the “Administration, Operation, Maintenance, and Development of Recreation uses and Facilities shall be managed by CDPR, for the term of the Agreement. CDPR operates and manages Reclamation land around Millerton Lake and adjacent to Friant Dam. All equipment and the Management structure necessary to operate MLSRA is provided on site by CDPR. CDPR has managed the Area for Reclamation since 1957, originally under Contract No. 14-06-200-6881. In April of 2010, Reclamation issued a Final Resource Management Plan (RMP)/Environmental Impact Statement. This document stated that ‘Implementing the RMP management actions will be the primary responsibility of the managing partner”. CDPR has been the Managing Partner since 1958 and has distinct and adequate background to continue in that capacity and to administer financial assistance when required.
