I see no problem in that

In the RFP we request: “The CCAP must include all GHG emissions and sinks by emission source and sink category following commonly accepted protocols for the applicable sectors including industry, electricity generation and/or use, transportation, commercial and residential buildings, agriculture, natural and working lands, and waste and materials management.”. of these agriculture, natural and working lands, residential, waste and materials management would be what has not been covered yet and all sectors should be comprehensively researched.

This could be added in as an alternate bid item.

Yes, Funds are limited

We are working on hiring a Climate Resilience Specialist to manage climate grant activities and work on writing new grants. The tribe may also be hiring an Energy Specialist.

For those listed in the question no, and I don’t think that would be easy to get data on. In the RFP we request: “The CCAP must include all GHG emissions and sinks by emission source and sink category following commonly accepted protocols for the applicable sectors including industry, electricity generation and/or use, transportation, commercial and residential buildings, agriculture, natural and working lands, and waste and materials management.”. of these agriculture, natural and working lands, residential, waste and materials management would be what has not been
covered yet and all sectors should be comprehensively researched. Residential buildings could be added in as an alternate bid item.

This could be added in as an alternate bid item.

We would work with our farmers and obtain the information.

It would depend upon the overall cost, however, the sectors in the PCAP should be comprehensively reviewed, if not done already. We would though like better tables for general public to understand. We encourage interested contractors to review the CCAP requirements that are found on the EPA’s main website.

Also, as an aside, we are assuming that the other bold underline sections of the RFP (CCAP Interagency Coordination & CCAP Public/Stakeholder Engagement) should be included but please clarify if they are not.

Items 5-8 within the Gant table mentioned are indicated as necessary in the fourth sentence of the second paragraph on page one and in the first sentence of the second paragraph on page two, therefore they are included in the request for the CCAP proposal. These items are the last to be developed related to the CCAP and require that all of the items in the Development Approach be finalized in order to accurately create these assessments.

Related to the previous questions on the tasks and schedule, The Table 1 chart carries out 3 years to mid-2027. We could complete our work much quicker than that. Do you need us to carry the work out as long as shown? We would be able to provide a lower fee if our services are not needed for the full three years. The timeline will be dependent upon completion of meetings, obtaining data, compiling data and working with multiple departments, committees, boards, entities, and individuals. Many times, the scheduling and receipt of that information from others is unpredictable and can take a while. We have up to the end of the timeline to complete the CCAP. If all objectives, including obtaining all data and multiple meetings and receiving comments is able to be accomplished in less time without compromising the completeness and integrity of the plan, then we can submit earlier.
