Summary: CSC Proposal Development
The Department of the Interior (DOI) will be issuing an RFP in early 2011 for
universities to host three regional Climate Science Centers (CSC). These centers will
provide scientific information, tools and techniques that land, water, wildlife and cultural
resource managers and other interested parties can apply to anticipate, monitor and adapt
to climate and ecologically-driven responses at regional-to-local scales. They will be
administered through the USGS
. Five regional centers have
already been established at the University of Alaska (Alaska), Oregon State (Northwest),
Colorado State (Northcentral), North Carolina State (Southeast), and the University of
Arizona (Southwest).
In selecting centers, the USGS is seeking partners that can deliver strong intellectual and
scientific capabilities in the area of climate change and its effects on natural and cultural
resources. The strongest candidate institutions or consortia will have established links
with natural resource management issues and entities, within the Department of the
Interior and more broadly elements such as Fish and Wildlife Cooperative Research
Units, Cooperative Ecosystem Study Units, Landscape Conservation Cooperatives,
NOAA Regional Integrated Science and Assessments, USDA Forest Service research
offices, and other entities. USGS seeks partners that bring together appropriate scientific
capabilities, space and facilities, outreach or extension services, data management,
