Subject: [CPEO-MEF] Spring Valley RAB TAPP RFP
Spring Valley Restoration Advisory Board
Technical Assistance for Public Participation (TAPP) Request for 
Proposal (RFP)

The community members of a Restoration Advisory Board/Technical Review 
Committee (RAB/TRC) are an important link between the community and the 
military in the environmental cleanup process. To ensure that the 
necessary technical assistance is accessible for community RAB members 
at sites where other funding or expertise is not available, the 
Department of Defense (DOD) established the Technical Assistance for 
Public Participation (TAPP) program. 

The RAB for the Spring Valley Formerly Used Defense Site (FUDS) located 
in Washington D.C. was established in May 2001. At this time, the 
community RAB members are applying for 25,000 dollars in TAPP funds to 
meet their technical participation needs for this fiscal year. In turn, 
this request for proposals (RFP) is being distributed to technical 
experts identified through a variety of sources as potentially having 
the skills necessary to assist the Spring Valley RAB.

If you are interested in applying for one or more of the identified 
needs below, please contact Mr. Theodore Henry or Mr. Ben Rooney within 
the Public Affairs Office at the Baltimore District Corps of Engineers 
[410-962-7522].  The materials and information that should be included 
in your submission are outlined on page 2 of this RFP. If you would like 
to learn more about the Spring Valley project, please refer to the 
project web site at
