REQUEST FOR PROPOSALS AND QUALIFICATIONS:
Fall 2020 Research to Understand Impacts of Bay Sand Mining on Sand Supply and Transport in San Francisco Bay and Outer Coast
The California State Coastal Conservancy is seeking qualifications of potential environmental services contractors and scientific study proposals to further develop the region’s understanding of the effects of sand mining on San Francisco Bay and associated outer coast, sand budget and transport mechanisms, as well as stratigraphy of the sand beds. This work will inform a broader effort led by the State Coastal Conservancy (SCC), the San Francisco Bay Conservation and Development Commission (BCDC), and others to study the physical effects of mining sand on San Francisco Bay and Outer Coast of California. SCC is releasing this Request for Proposals and Qualifications to find a qualified contractor (or contractors) to provide these services, as described more fully below. SCC will negotiate and manage the contract(s) on behalf of BCDC.
The selected contractor(s) will provide one or up to three of three services: 1) review and summarize existing sand-transport and related geophysical literature and bathymetric data for the sand mining lease areas and surrounding areas in Central San Francisco Bay and within Suisun Channel, and update and refine an existing draft sand budget and database for the San Francisco Bay and adjacent outer coast, 2) conduct stratigraphic sampling in multiple sand mining lease areas covering approximately 2,061 acres of Central Bay and 1,303 acres of Suisun Bay in order to characterize the depth and quality of the sand in these lease areas, and 3) assess sand transport in San Francisco Bay and the adjacent outer coast.
The Full RFPQ and Detailed scopes of work are available upon request to Marilyn Latta at Marilyn.firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants may provide qualifications and proposals for one or all of the Scopes outlined.
Proposals are due electronically to email@example.com by 5pm
