Alaska Seeks Proposals for Ocean Ranger Program

Monday, July 26, 2010

The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation, Division of Water, is soliciting detailed proposals for assistance with the implementation of the Ocean Ranger program established under Alaska Statute 46.03.476. The selected contractor will recruit, hire, train, and manage U.S Coast Guard licensed marine engineers or individuals with degrees in marine safety and environmental protection to serve as Ocean Rangers on large commercial passenger vessels (cruise ships).
There is a preference for Alaska hire and the contractor must submit and implement an Alaska hire plan that will lead to the hiring of Alaskan Ocean Rangers.  Based upon guidance provided by the Department, the contractor will refine the existing “Ocean Ranger Guidebook and Ocean Ranger Daily Report”. The “Ocean Ranger Daily Report” will serve as the backbone of the Ocean Ranger program. The contractor will also refine the current Ocean Ranger Guidebook, and conduct a training course for the Ocean Rangers. The contractor will administer the program and manage the logistics of placing Ocean Rangers on most large cruise ships that visit Alaska each year.
