Organizations in Idaho have a strong record of working together to accomplish rangeland goals. However, these organization could deliver better conservation and address threats to Idaho rangelands through a more coordinated effort and unified vision. This resulted in stakeholders forming the Idaho Rangeland Conservation Partnership (IRCP) to formalize collaboration among existing land management entities, private land owners, livestock producers, conservation organizations and other committed partners to foster positive results on rangelands. This effort requires the leadership of an experienced representative to carry out the vision of the IRCP and they are currently seeking proposals to contract a Coordinator.

The IRCP is requesting proposals that include qualification, experience, and ability to provide specific deliverables for a fixed cost contract of $70,000 per year for three years. This contract is funded initially under a three-year partnership agreement between the Bureau of Land Management and the Intermountain West Joint Venture, Partnering to Conserve Sagebrush Rangelands. Annual review of the contract will be conducted by the IRCP steering committee.

The initial funding for the position and the contract with the Coordinator will be administered by the Idaho Rangeland Resources Commission. The Coordinator will work closely with, take guidance from and provide contract deliverable to the IRCP Steering Committee.

For detailed deliverables and information on how to apply, please closely review this RFP.
