|Notice Type:||Emergency Procurement|
|Notice Expiration Date:||11/20/2017|
|Emergency Justification:||A multi-million dollar capital project (administered through the Capital Development Board) was initiated several years ago which would address many of the communication, monitoring, control and alarm systems issues at the fish hatchery. However, due to the budget impasse, this project has stalled. Since that time, the conditions at Jake Wolf have continued to deteriorate, threatening the fisheries resource. Furthermore, a lightning strike permanently damaged the existing control panel which is used to monitor water levels at several fish rearing tanks. Without this capability, site staff are unable to determine water levels without physically looking to see if the water level is normal. In addition, site personnel have lost automated communication with the ten water supply wells. Site staff are currently manually monitoring these water levels, well production and flow rates, 24/7, to maintain hatchery operations. This is a massive undertaking and has increased the risk of potential loss of fish in production valued at approximately $1.3 million. Under its present condition, monitoring capabilities of hatchery operations are severely limited thus jeopardizing the fisheries resource and associated State revenues. |
Without this procurement the loss of Federal funds will result if not completed. The Sport fish Restoration Initiative is a long-standing match grant between the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the State. It is a 75%: 25% Federal to State grant. Monies into this fund are from a 15% excise tax on fishing equipment purchased by anglers. Those tax dollars are returned to the state based upon the number of licenses sold each year.
This project will only address emergency work to restore automation to control panel and monitoring systems and replacement of damaged fiber optic cabling.
|Accordance with Admin Rule:||Immediate action necessary to avoid loss of federal or donated funds, Minimize serious disruption to critical state services that affect health, safety, or collection of substantial state revenues, Protect against further damage to state property|
