The University of Colorado has released a competitive solicitation to contract for services related to the Intermountain Oil and Gas Best Management Practices Website/Database Enhancement Project (BMP Project).  If interested in the solicitation, please send an email to the University of Colorado Purchasing Agent, David Turner, at David.Turner@CU.edu requesting a copy of the Request for Documented Quotes #  CU-DT71144-Q  OR visit the project website homepage for a link to the solicitation:  http://www.oilandgasbmps.org    Documented Quotes are due in hard copy December 21, 2009 at 4:00 pm.

The Natural Resources Law Center (NRLC) at the University of Colorado at Boulder and its partners have developed a comprehensive, free-access, searchable, web-based oil and gas best management practices (BMPs) database for the Intermountain West (five-state area of CO, MT, NM, UT and WY).  The database currently includes over 6,000 BMPs addressing impacts to a wide variety of surface resources— air and water quality, visual aesthetics, health and safety, wildlife and others.  The database includes practices currently in use, required, and/or recommended for responsible resource management derived from a variety of “source documents”.  Sources currently include environmental impact statements, lease stipulations, industry and environmental group websites, and local, state and federal guidance documents.

The searchable database is imbedded in a BMP website that provides background material on oil and gas development.  The website includes materials on applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations, and a variety of resources pages including an introduction to the oil and gas development process, and background information on air quality, water quality, wildlife, vegetation, reclamation, and geographic information systems (GIS ) applications as they relate to oil and gas.

Through this solicitation, the NRLC is seeking one or more contractors to be responsible for expanding and improving the content of the database and website and for assisting database users.  This consulting position will be supported by funding from the Research Partnership to Secure Energy for America.  $65,000 is initially available over a two-year period for this part-time position with additional funding available for other contractor services.

Minimum mandatory qualifications are:

1.            A graduate degree and/or substantial experience in environmental sciences, policy or law related to oil and gas development, its regulatory framework, and environmental impacts.

2.            Commitment to work in Boulder or to periodically travel to Boulder to coordinate with NRLC staff without reimbursement of travel expenses, including both travel time and vehicle expense.

3.            Ability to occasionally travel to conferences or meetings outside the Denver metropolitan area, with travel reimbursement provided.

See the solicitation for additional details on the scope of work and the method of applying.  Applications (documented quotes) should be submitted by December 21, 2009.
