The California Tahoe Conservancy seeks a consultant to lead the development of a question-driven Ecological and Socioeconomic Monitoring Plan (ESMP) for the Lake Tahoe West Restoration Partnership (LTW).

The chosen consultant will design a collaborative process that involves the existing LTW teams (including the Monitoring Team (MT), Science Team (ST), Executive Team (ET), and Stakeholder Science Committee (SSC)) in development and review. The consultant will facilitate the prioritization process, including building a consensus recommendation and mediating any disputes that arise. Finally, the consultant will write the ESMP and obtain recommendations from the SSC and MT, and approval from the ET. The monitoring plan must be based on scientific and other relevant information; must be applicable to the project-scale and the landscape-scale; and include implementation, effectiveness, and regulatory compliance indicators. In addition to standard monitoring plan components, the monitoring plan will consider the need for ongoing maintenance of treatments as well as adaptive management.
