- On page 19 of the Request for Services, #1. D., we stated that Errors and Omissions (E&O) Insurance would be required for the Contract. We have decided that E&O Insurance will not be required for this contract.
- On page 20 of the Request for Services, #2.D., we stated that $2 million of E&O Insurance would be required for this contract. Per the change above, E&O Insurance will not be required for this contract.

The State Coastal Conservancy requests the services of an expert in community engagement with tribal governments, tribal groups, and tribal community members in Southern California. The Contractor will develop and implement participation from tribal communities regarding the Ballona Wetlands Restoration Project. The Conservancy and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (the landowner and project lead) aim to understand the concerns, experience, and priorities of the tribes to implement the Ballona Wetland Restoration Project in a way that is respectful of and beneficial to local tribes that have occupied the project area from time immemorial.
Potential Contractors should have significant, established experience in tribal engagement in Southern California. Please see the complete request for services for the proposed scope of services.
To apply, you will need to include qualifications, project approach, project team, resume, examples of relevant projects, and three references. More information on how to apply is available in the Request for Services.
