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.

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.
