The Full Delivery Program procures compensatory mitigation by issuing Requests for Proposals (RFPs) through the N.C. Department of Administration. Each RFP specifies the river basin and catalog unit within which mitigation is being sought, and the amount and type of mitigation needed (i.e. buffer, stream and/or wetland). Offerors are required to submit both a Technical Proposal and a Cost Proposal for each prospective submittal.
The Technical Proposal details:
The Cost Proposal provides a unit cost (i.e., per buffer mitigation unit, stream mitigation unit or wetland mitigation unit) for the submittal. Qualifying proposals are evaluated based on the technical merits of the proposed restoration and the overall per-unit cost. Firms associated with selected proposals enter into a contract with EEP to convey a conservation easement on the project area to the state, develop and implement a restoration plan, and monitor the project for five years to verify that the restoration meets established success criteria.
