1. Summary and Background
The Sitka Conservation Society (SCS) is currently accepting proposals to develop, produce and deliver a short film to highlight the role of the Tongass National Forest in the production of the sustainable salmon fisheries of the North Pacific Ocean and the untold story of the critical role of the USDA Forest in producing, conserving, protecting and enhancing the wild salmon stocks that create a robust and extensive salmon economy that is global in its reach.
The purpose of this Request for Proposal (RFP) is to solicit proposals from various candidate organizations, conduct a fair and extensive evaluation based on criteria listed herein, and select the candidate who best represents the direction the Sitka Conservation Society wishes to go.
SCS has been working to protect the temperate rainforest of Southeast Alaska and Sitka’s quality of life since 1967. SCS has dual goals of protecting the coastal temperate rainforests of Southeast Alaska and developing economically, socially, and environmentally sustainable communities within the Tongass National Forest. SCS works to protect and manage the Tongass in a way that the world will be inspired by.
The Sitka Conservation Society is based in the small coastal town of Sitka, Alaska.
