BOEM Contract Opportunity for GOM Take Rule Modeling

The Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) within the Department of the
Interior has issued Synopses of Proposed Contract Actions in accordance
with FAR 5.201. If you are interested in this opportunity please review the
requirements posted on FedBizzOpps (FBO) website. The link to the synopsis

The purpose of this project is to perform acoustic propagation and marine
mammal exposure modeling using specified models. This study will help BOEM
and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) complete the analysis of
impacts to marine mammals in the GOM G&G EIS. This modeling will also be
used in a petition for rulemaking under 101(a)(5)(A) of the Marine Mammal
Protection Act and will aid in the analysis that NMFS will need to make a
determination on permit issuance.

If you are interested in receiving copy of the solicitation, please follow
