INVITATION TO BID
HYDROGEOMORPHIC ASSESSMENTS

The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes (CSKT) Fisheries Program is requesting proposals from consulting firms to perform Hydrogeomorphic (HGM) assessments on properties protected under the CSKT Atlantic Richfield Company (ARCO) settlement. The HGM methodology provides an empirically-based model to assess ecological functions in riverine floodplain environments. This method is currently in use by the CSKT Fisheries Program to determine progress towards the number of wetland/riparian credits required under the ARCO settlement.
The primary objectives of this work are: 1) to review previous HGM assessments on properties protected under the ARCO settlement; 2) to conduct a final HGM assessment of all ARCO properties to document the number of credits following 20 years of protection and restoration, and 3) to update the website www.jockoriver.net to include final HGM results and other data and reports relevant to the ARCO settlement. HGM assessments will involve both field and office work. Project sites are located on CSKT Fisheries mitigation properties in the Jocko River watershed. Preference will be given to firms with at least five (5) years of experience performing HGM assessments in riverine floodplain environments. The consulting firm chosen for this project may also be directed to provide ecological restoration design services to assist with HGM credit enhancement on protected properties. HGM and associated work is expected to begin in September 2017 and end by December 2018.
These projects are subject to all Tribal laws, regulations, policies, and the Tribes reserve the right to reject any and all bids.
This is an Indian Preference bid. Tribal contractors who wish to receive Indian Preference must obtain certification by the Indian Preference Office as a legitimate Indian-owned business prior to submission of bids. Proof of Indian Preference must be included with your bid in the form of a copy of the Certificate issued by the Indian Preference Office. Be advised that evidence of your membership or affiliation with a Tribe does not constitute Indian Preference Certification. You must be certified by the Indian Preference Office in order to claim preference. The selection of the successful contractor and award of this project will be per the provisions of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes Indian Preference Ordinance 101A. It is the sole responsibility of the bidder to obtain and provide proof of Indian Preference certification from the Indian Preference Office.
