ICF community affairs specialists assisted the California Bay-Delta Authority (CBDA) under numerous task orders, including one for planning the Bay-Delta Public Advisory Committee (BDPAC) Environmental Justice Subcommittee meeting.
ICF’s community affairs specialist helped develop the meeting and also assisted with planning a separate two-day workshop. Our specialists designed presentations, which were also translated into Spanish, for CBDA staff to use and replicate. ICF also supported CBDA’s Watershed Program by facilitating scientific involvement and setting programmatic measurements for evaluating the success and effectiveness of the Watershed Program. In addition, ICF created a set of standards by which CBDA could perform an independent audit of the programs' early implementation activities.
ICF played an integral role in designing and implementing the CBDA Science Program’s 2004 Proposal Solicitation Package (PSP), in which approximately $18-20 million of state and federal grant money was appropriated to fund water supply and ecosystem resource management research projects. Working seamlessly with Science Program staff, ICF was instrumental in the development and management of processes and materials to support the application, review, approval, and funding of grant proposals.
To help inform relevant stakeholders about the availability of the PSP and to solicit external reviewers, ICF conducted a broad outreach program. ICF created the collateral materials and distributed them in more than 100 outlets, including industry magazines and journals; state agency websites and internal newsletters; professional organizations; underrepresented groups such as tribes and the environmental justice community; pertinent listservs; and online funding databases.
