Request for Proposals: Facilitator for update to the Council’s position on use of oil spill dispersants

The Council is inviting proposals for a project to support its Board of Directors to make an informed decision regarding updating or possibly changing its 2006 position on the use of chemical dispersants, and to generate supporting documents. An experienced expert in facilitating the translation of science into organizational position is sought. The final work product of this effort is a report documenting the Council’s position on the use of chemical dispersants and a document listing supporting talking points.

This work includes:

  • An initial report that incorporates science and policy review and presents possible positions the Council could adopt regarding the use of dispersants in our region.
  • Strategically facilitate conversations, presentations, learning opportunities, and discussions about the data and possible positions.
  • Guide the Board of Directors to adopting a formal position on dispersant use in the Council’s region.
  • A final report that incorporates the initial report and expands on why the final position was adopted by the Council.
  • Supporting materials for the adopted position that facilitate interactions with legislators and regulators in long-term policy decisions and with spill response teams, such as Unified Command, in the case of an incident.

Funds available for educational projects related to our mission

The Council works to educate Exxon Valdez region youth about the environmentally safe operation of the Alyeska terminal and associated tankers. Working with area youth is vital to fight complacency that can arise if new generations of citizens are not continually reminded of the need for ongoing oil spill prevention.

To support this effort, the Council is inviting proposals for facilitating learning experiences with Exxon Valdez oil spill region youth.
