(A) The taxpayer has received a statutory notice of deficiency, under I.R.C. §6212, which entitles the taxpayer to seek Tax Court review of a proposed tax deficiency.

In the course of the hearing, the taxpayer is entitled to contest the underlying tax liability because the taxpayer has had no prior opportunity to contest the liability. This is not a delinquent tax because it is not a final tax liability. Should the taxpayer seek tax court review, this will not be a final tax liability until the taxpayer has exercised all judicial appeal rights. (C) The taxpayer has entered into an installment agreement pursuant to I.R.C. §6159. The taxpayer is making timely payments and is in full compliance with the agreement terms. The taxpayer is not delinquent because the taxpayer is not currently required to make full payment. (D) The taxpayer has filed for bankruptcy protection.

STATEMENT OF WORK Identify the condition, status and needs for infrastructure development or improvement and shoreline access for recreational fishers in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands July 3, 2014 BACKGROUND The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), Pacific Islands Regional Office, Sustainable Fisheries Division (SFD) is responsible for implementing regulations covering the Region's recreational fishing and responding to certain recreational fishing or non-commercial fishing issues through SFD staff that are dedicated to coordinating recreational fisheries issues and outreach. NOAA's National Plan of Action to address improvements in recreational fisheries is outlined in NOAA's Regional Recreational Fisheries Action Agenda for the Pacific Islands Region (PIR) for fiscal years 2014 and 2015. The PIR recreational fisheries action agendas are aligned with five broad goals to improve recreational fisheries: • Improve recreational fishing opportunities. • Improve recreational catch, effort, and status data. • Improve social and economic data on recreational fisheries. • Improve communication. • Improve institutional orientation of the Agency. This project was designed to address Goal 1: Objective 3 of the PIR Action Agenda. Specifically, Goal 1 is to improve recreational (non-commercial) fishing opportunities in each of the island areas. Objective 3 is more specific; to improve infrastructure, facilities and safety for shoreline and boat-based fishing. In this Statement of Work, the following terms apply: • "Recreational fishing" refers to all types of non-commercial fishing activities, such as purely recreational (for sport or pleasure) fishing, fishing for substance or cultural motivations as well as charter fishing (recreational fishing for hire). • "Fisherman" or "fishermen" refers to all people who engage in recreational fishing. • The Western Pacific Region recreational fishery includes non-commercial and recreational fisheries in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, and the Northern Mariana Islands (NMI). The term "Pacific Island Areas" refers in this document to American Samoa, Guam, Hawaii, and the Northern Mariana Islands. • The term "territories" in this document refers to American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. There is a need for NMFS to document the condition and status of infrastructure and needs for infrastructure development or improvements as well as shoreline access to support both recreational boating and shoreline access for recreational fishing throughout the Region. The need for this project was expressed at Regional recreational summit meetings, roundtables and directly from members of recreational fishing communities of the Western Pacific Region. Constituents voiced concern over poorly sited, designed and maintained boat ramps, the poor condition of associated floating dock facilities, run-down harbors, inadequate lighting, facilities and security, all of which have ramifications for public safety. Shoreline fishermen have additional concerns about the lack of parking and other changes affecting access to areas which they have customarily fished in for years. It is recognized that NMFS cannot remedy all of these issues on its own; however, the agency seeks a greater understanding of the problems and opportunities before moving forward with implementing, encouraging or coordinating improvements to benefit non-commercial fisheries. The development of a document with a clear description and identification of problems, issues, potential solutions, and responsible agencies has been requested by interested and affected fishermen. NEED FOR WORK AND CONTRACTOR'S CAPABILITY SFD requires the services of a single contractor to develop a report detailing the following: 1. Status of (location, general ownership, condition, and quality of access) 2. Infrastructure quality, sufficiency; and 3. Needs for recreational/non-commercial fishing infrastructure and shoreline access in Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, and the CNMI with an emphasis on enhancing safety for fishermen. The Contractor should be familiar with the small boat-based and shoreline fisheries and fishing communities of the Pacific Island Areas with first-hand knowledge of trailer boating and launching fishing vessels into the ocean in at least one of the study areas under a variety of conditions. The bid should describe the contractor's experience so that the experience qualification can be determined. Accurate visual documentation of boating and shoreline access areas will be required. To achieve this task, the Contractor must have knowledge, expertise and experience with digital photography and using digital photographs in reports. The final report will be well illustrated with accurate maps and diagrams using publicly available USGS and NOAA quad charts at a 1:24,000 scale indicating boating and publicly accessible shoreline access points. This contract requires site visits to at least 80% of the public boating access locations in the Hawaiian Islands. Familiarity with GIS tools and mapping is highly desirable. The Contractor will make use of aerial survey data, mapping products and existing GIS databases to pinpoint public shoreline access points and include this information in the final report. If site visits to some areas are not feasible, the Contractor will coordinate with State, territorial and Federal offices to obtain information to develop the report covering all areas of the region where saltwater non-commercial fishing activities commonly occur. The Contractor will communicate with these agencies to determine where conflicts and negative issues of shoreline access occur and document these findings in the report. PROJECT TASKS, DELIVERABLES, AND MONITORING Task 1. The Contractor will meet with the SFD subject matter expert at a kickoff meeting to discuss the specific locations to be studied. The locations will include: small boat harbors, coastal parks, public rights of ways, and public and private marinas in four island areas (American Samoa, the NMI, Guam, and Hawaii). The Contractor will be provided with NMFS resources and assistance such as access to mapping products and fisheries contacts in the region. Task 2. The Contractor will conduct site visits to small boat harbors, coastal parks, public rights of way in the Pacific Island Areas with emphasis on the Hawaii region to document the required information. The site visits will be completed by May 30, 2015. Task 3. The Contractor will generate the electronic report that will document: • Location of public rights of way, and general locations of harbors, ramps, or marinas. Locations shall be provided in tables, and plotted on base maps. Base maps shall be coastal plots onto USGS quadrangles or NOAA coastal maps. • General description of each boat facility and condition. Include ramps, launches, boat washing areas, including safety issues and concerns. • General description of aids to navigation and condition. • General description of showers, restrooms (number/condition), parking areas (number of parking spaces, meters, etc.). • Safety and security issues: lighting/security/infrastructure condition. • Access to emergency communications and medical assistance. • General ownership status (private, state, etc.). • Needs related to small-boat and shoreline access and infrastructure related to recreational fishing including recommendations for improvements focusing on safety. Specifically, the report should include detailed sections on each of the populated, publicly accessible main Hawaiian Islands (Hawaii, Molokai, Maui, Lanai, Oahu, and Kauai), Guam, American Samoa (Tutuila, Ofu, Olosega and Ta'u Islands) and the main islands of the Commonwealth of the Mariana Islands (Saipan, Rota and Tinian Islands). When in-person site visits are not possible, the Contractor will contact appropriate fisheries agencies in State, territorial or Federal offices and utilize publicly available mapping and charting products to obtain comparable information. The final product of the contract will be a standalone report not to exceed 200 pages and provided in electronic format (MS Word and Adobe PDF) containing details pertaining to the location and quality characteristics of small-boat harbors, boat ramps, boat launching sites, private and State or Territory marinas, parking areas, wash-down facilities, fish cleaning facilities, bathrooms, showers, lighting, and security at each site. The report will document the existence, condition and need for additional aids- to-navigation for nearby channels and harbors and access to emergency communications and medical assistance. The report will include information on fishing access by shoreline fishermen, kayaks and spear fishermen including issues related to vehicular parking, security, access through private lands, government lands and changes in shoreline access over time. Boating infrastructure and shoreline access issues will be related to public safety concerns. The report will be well illustrated with color digital photographs, publicly available USGS Quads and NOAA charts and diagrams, and contain suggestions for needed improvements to all infrastructure, facilities and access points. The Contractor will identify in the report the specific State, territorial, Federal or private entity that is responsible for the maintenance and potential improvement of facilities or fishing access areas and provide suggestions for significant improvements where appropriate, i.e. harbor/ramp design, additional boat ramps, dredging, parking areas, lighting, restroom maintenance, etc. The Contractor will conduct necessary site visits, communications, documentation and digital report generation for a total amount of USD $20,000. Contractor's performance will be monitored and evaluated by SFD. The performance evaluation will be prepared according to the guidelines provided in DAO-216-13, "Evaluation of the Results of Advisory and Assistance Contracts."
