SAGA Bartlet Cove: NOTICE OF INTENT TO AWARD This Funding Announcement is not a request for applications. This announcement is to provide public notice of the National Park Service (NPS), intention to fund the following project activities. ABSTRACT Funding Announcement: P11AC90421 Project Title: SAGA Bartlet Cove Recipient: Southeast Alaska Guidance Association Principle Investigator: Scott Young Total Anticipated Award Amount: $ 25,000 Cost Share: 25% = $6200.00 New Award Or Continuation: New Anticipated Length of Agreement: 9/30/2011 Anticipated Period of Performance: 4/01/2011 9/30/2011 Award Instrument: Cooperative Agreement Statutory Authority: 16 U.S.C. 1722: The Secretary is authorized to enter into contracts and cooperative agreements with any qualified youth or conservation corps to perform appropriate conservation projects referred to in subsection (d) of this section. (d) The Secretary may utilize the Corps or any qualified youth or conservation to carry out appropriate conservation projects which the Secretary is authorized to carry out under other authority of law on public lands. CFDA#: 15.931 Single Source Justification Criteria Sited: Substantial Involvement Documentation Task Agreement Number or PR Number R9815-11-0608 Type of funds to be used for this project : Recreational Fee Demonstration, 20% - Public Lands Corps Program (PLC) PMIS # 130622D. l. Why was this cooperator selected? The Southeast Alaska Guidance Association (SAGA) was selected for their experience, knowledge, skill and past work with GLBA. SAGA and GLBA have been working cooperatively since 2001 and completed many conservation projects within the park. 2. Explain the nature of the anticipated substantial involvement? What will NPS specifically do to carry out the project? The NPS will provide a work leader and a trails work crew to provide project direction, guidance and work alongside the SAGA work crew. The NPS will provide project management oversight. The NPS will provide environmental educational training opportunities for the SAGA crew members conducted by GLBA employees with ecological credentials or that are subject matter experts. The NPS will provide $25,000 in PLC funding, ground transportation, fuel, a suitable camp site, specialized tools and portable park radios for safety considerations. 3. Why is the substantial involvement considered to be necessary? This substantial involvement is necessary to complete conservation projects where GLBA lacks the capacity and provide exposure to SAGA members to a Southeast Alaska National Park environment and to the NPS mission. 4. What are the deliverables expected? SAGA will provide a six person crew with two team leaders for 20 work days plus as much time as is required for mobilization/demobilization. The crew will complete trail and boundary brushing and repairs within the Bartlett Cove area. SAGA will provide transportation to the worksite, camp gear and food for all the crew members. 5. What is the purpose of the agreement? To work cooperatively to complete conservation projects within the park and provide life experiences for the SAGA crew members. 6. Explain why the project or activity entails a relationship of assistance rather than a contract. How will the PI and/or graduate students benefit from this collaboration? In the Public Lands Corps Act of 1993 Congress found that: conserving natural and cultural resources and maintaining environmentally important lands and waters using young adults in a Public Lands Corps can provide these individuals with education and work opportunities that further their appreciation of natural and cultural resources and provide a means to pay for higher education, while benefiting the economy and the environment; many facilities and natural resources on eligible service lands are degraded or in disrepair and need labor intensive rehabilitation that federal agencies are unable to provide at current personnel levels; youth conservation corps have a good record of restoring and maintaining these facilities in a cost effective and efficient manner. The members of the SAGA crew will learn to make the connection between what they learn and how they live through improving the lives, land and communities in Alaska. 7. How was the determination made that the costs proposed are accurate and proper? Provide a breakdown of costs and rationale for determining they are acceptable. The PLC funding program maximum is $25,000 per project. SAGA determines the number of days a crew can be on site with the available funding considering the cost of mobilization and demobilization to the specific work site, subsistence and camp requirements. See attached SAGA cost breakdown estimate.
