NPS Point of Contact Erica_Cordeiro@nps.gov OVERVIEW, RECIPIENT AND NPS SUBSTANTIAL INVOLVEMENT Cooperative Agreement Number or PR Number H2495090023 l. What type of competition is appropriate? Competition was unnecessary as all cooperators considered have already competed. 2. Why was this cooperator selected?

Specifically, the cooperator has provided services to this particular NPS unit since 1999 with excellent results. In addition, this cooperator is the only cooperator, among those available in the Youth Program, which has an established history of providing these services in the Alaska region. 3.

To provide conservation interns to assist with natural resource monitoring projects within Lake Clark National Park and Preserve. 5. What are the deliverables expected?

Specifically, interns will be provided housing, equipment, training, project oversight, and guidance regarding fisheries management. 7. Why is the substantial involvement considered to be necessary? Substantial involvement is considered necessary because NPS personnel will be directing the training and scope of the work being conducted by the interns provided by the cooperator. 8.

Which law or laws authorize granting of assistance for performance of this project or activity? 11. How was the determination made that the costs proposed are accurate and proper?
