The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Great Lakes National Program
Office (GLNPO) is requesting Initial Proposals for the management and
operation (including field sampling and laboratory analysis) of the
Integrated Atmospheric Deposition Network (IADN). IADN is a cooperative
effort between the U.S. EPA and Environment Canada and measures
persistent bioaccumulative toxic (PBT) substances in three phases:
precipitation, vapor, and particulate. IADN currently collects data on
the deposition of toxic pollutants (PCBs, organochlorine pesticides, and
PAHs) to the Great Lakes at 5 sites in the U.S.

This Request for Initial Proposals (RFIP) addresses network management
and operation including field sampling and sample analysis corresponding
to a sample collection period of five years from September 1, 2004 to
August 30, 2009 for the five currently operating US sites and other
sites as determined by program needs. This RFIP also includes indefinite
operation at the network co-location site at Point Petre, ON.

This RFIP is for a cooperative agreement totaling up to $3,560,000 over
five years. The successful applicant will submit quality-assured
analytical results within 10 months of receipt of samples in laboratory
(i.e., submit data on all 2005 samples to the IADN Data Manager by
October 2006).

Proposals should not exceed fifteen pages in length. Curriculum vitae of
principal investigators and other personnel critical to the proposedwork
should be included as appendices and will not count as proposal pages.
The deadline for all Initial Proposals is 5:00 PM Central time,Monday

July 22, 2004.
